Our bodies are highly dependent on protein, as it is found in virtually every body part and tissue throughout our bodies. Proteins are made up of amino acids, known as the building blocks of proteins. Since the body doesn’t store amino acids, as it does fats or carbohydrates, it needs a daily supply of amino acids to make new protein.
Summer is abundant with nutrition-rich fresh fruits and vegetables. Take advantage by keeping the refrigerator well stocked with snack size servings of fresh carrots, colorful bell peppers and bite-size pieces of broccoli and cauliflower.
If you’re heading off to the beach to enjoy the sun, sand and surf this summer, it’s essential that you take the right steps to protect your skin.
Days are longer, the weather is mild – take your exercise routine outdoors and enjoy the rejuvenation that comes from breathing in fresh air! As an added bonus for your good health, leave the car keys at home and take up bike riding or walking this summer.
