May 20, 2011 Health Tip Of The Day

FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH PROTEIN CONTENT

It is not hard to get your necessary protein for the day. The numbers can add up quickly.

Keep in mind the following protein contents of common foods.

*A 3- to 4-ounce serving of lean meat, poultry, or fish contains
about 25 to 35 grams of protein (the size of a deck of cards)
*1 cup of cooked beans or lentils contains about 18 grams of protein
*1 cup of low-fat or fat-free milk contains 8 grams of protein
*1 cup of low-fat yogurt contains about 10 grams of protein
*1 cup of low-fat cottage cheese contains about 28 grams of protein

As Always, To Your Health!
