Did you know that one of the most important building blocks within your body is protein? Every single cell within the human body contains and relies upon protein to function. When we add healthy protein to our diet, we can assist our body in its efforts to repair and replace cells, leading to important growth development for pregnant women, teenagers, and children alike. Of course, protein is also vital for building muscle and an integral part of every fitness routine.
If you are looking for delicious ways to protein enhance your favorite baked goods, you've come to the right place. In today's conversation, we are going to explore the benefits of protein and how you can best protein boost your favorite recipes!
