Health Notes from Dr. Liz
In today’s fast paced era eating protein is easy, thanks to protein powders! When made from real foods like eggs and milk (casein and whey), protein powders are convenient options to ensure your body gets what it needs. Lucky for us, the new focus on plant-based diet has brought many new plant protein sources to market. Simply blend a scoop into smoothies, hot cereals or soups. Most varieties of protein powders supply about 10 to 20 grams per scoop (about 20 to 40% of your Daily Value), perfect for counting as a “meal’s” worth of protein.
