Protein is essential for good health, and getting enough particularly in the morning can set you up for a productive day filled with great food choices.

Here are 5 reasons you want to include more protein in your diet:

  • It is a component of every cell in your body.
  • Your body uses it to build and repair tissue.
  • You need it to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals.
  • It is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
  • Protein can boost metabolism and increase fat burning.
