Proteins are element of every cell, tissue, and organ in our bodies. These body proteins are continually being unusable and replaced. The protein in the foods we eat is digested into amino acids that are later used to restore these proteins in our bodies.

Protein is established in the following foods:
  • meats, poultry, and fish
  • legumes (dry beans and peas)
  • tofu
  • eggs
  • nuts and seeds
  • milk and milk products
  • grains, some vegetables, and some fruits
As we mention, most adults in the United States get more than adequate protein to meet their requirements. It's rare for somebody who is healthy and eating a diverse diet to not get sufficient protein.
