I'm loving this infographic as it shows you which foods you can get protein from as part of a healthy balanced diet, no matter if you’re a meat eater, vegan or vegetarian.  You may be surprised with the results shown below.

All You Need To Know About Protein

So the next time you’re preparing your meal, you may want to think about including some of these protein packed foods.  Looks like we should be fine in this house then as we eat a LOT of chicken, eggs, Greek yogurt and cheese (too much cheese probably)!
