What is a complete protein?

A complete protein is food that provides all 9 of the essential amino acids in high enough amounts for our bodily functions. Usually, complete proteins are found in meats, poultry, fish, milk, eggs, and cheese. Although the soybean is considered to be the only plant-based complete protein, containing all 9 of the essential amino acids. 

For those who do not eat meat there are other ways to get a complete protein, other than eating soy products. By combining and pairing certain foods, you can create complete proteins.

  • Rice and beans
  • Peanut butter on whole wheat bread
  • Mac n’ cheese
  • Rice and lentil curry
  • Tofu and millet
  • Bean and barley soup
  • Wheat-soy bread
  • Cornbread and black eyed peas
  • Hummus and pita bread
  • Yogurt and nuts

Eat The Color of The Rainbow

It's easy to identify foods with the highest levels of antioxidants—they're often the most colorful. Carrots and sweet potatoes have plenty of beta carotene; bell peppers, strawberries and tomatoes contain vitamin C; tomatoes and watermelon have lycopene; and dark leafy greens like spinach contain lutein. Blueberries have anthocyanins. Red grapes have resveratrol.

Secret to fat loss

A health liver helps get rid of that unwanted fat, add turmeric & milk thistle to your diet. 

Start taking milk thistle supplements. Milk thistle promotes the growth and health of liver cells. Milk thistle contains silymarins, which are antioxidants that fight oxidation, a process that damages liver cells. It also enhances protein synthesis in the liver.

Add turmeric to your diet. Turmeric boosts the liver’s ability to produce bile, a key part of the liver-cleansing process. It has also been known to help regenerate damaged liver cells.

Water, Weight Loss & You

Drink lots of water. Detoxify your liver and flush toxins out by drinking at least 2 quarts of water every day. Drinking lots of water will keep you hydrated, which naturally encourages cell regeneration. It will also allow the liver to filter out more toxins and residue, letting it work faster and increasing your energy level.
