    Moo Year Moo You! Protein and your recovery; why it's important

    Moo Year Moo You!

    Or rather, New Year New You, we just thought it was too good a pun to pass up.

    With the advent of the New Year, there is no better time to get back to working out. Whatever your torture of choice, the gym, the great outdoors or even a dojo, it is important to remember that a healthy diet contributes greatly to a healthy lifestyle.

    A good workout can cause a breakdown of muscle protein and the body needs to adapt to the physiological stress. While working out, the right diet allows the body to become fitter, stronger and recover faster. Consuming food sources of protein in meals and snacks after working out can also further promote the integration of protein into your body.

    To keep metabolism running and your energy up, protein is required in our diets every day. It is used in every part of our body and is essential for building muscle mass, facilitating neurological functions and digestion.

    Lack of Protein can lead to: 

    • A sluggish metabolism
    • Slow weight loss
    • Difficulty building muscle mass
    • Low energy levels
    • Poor concentration
    • Mood swings
    • Muscle, bone and joint pain
    • Slow wound healing
    • Low immunity

    As delicious as Chewy Mooey is as a snack, it can be a challenge to eat as much of it as one would like. Here is a link for some recipes you can make with Chewy Mooey.
