Protein Market Going Strong Friday, October 9th, 2015


Protein has been around forever, but in recent years it is being added to everything from spaghetti to water.

The recommended daily allowance for American’s is 0.36 grams of protein per pound of body weight, but a lot of people aren’t getting that according to Jessica Crandall, a registered dietitian nutritionist and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This deficiency is especially true for women who may not eat a complete breakfast in the morning.

Anyone who begins his or her day with a protein deficit can become hungry and irritable later in the day, Crandall said. This can lead to binge eating at dinner because they haven’t been adequately fueling their bodies.

Avoid getting hungry later and start your morning off with one of these protein bars that are Made With Honey!
