We all need protein. Indeed, it is one of the seven essential elements in our diet. Some weight loss diets are even based on daily, almost exclusive, consumption of protein to lose weight.
In animal products, it can be found in eggs, dairy products, fish and seafood, white meat and red meat which are high in protein.
When it comes to plants, it can be found in foods like soy and its derivatives which are complete proteins. We can also mention legumes and cereals which are a great source of protein, although incomplete if eaten separately.
