Since I am sure you are all wondering what I had for breakfast this morning. Let me show you…
I had none other than an Oven Roasted Chicken and Cranberry PROTINIS™ Snack. The perfect quick and easy meal for a busy Mom who is on the go. Ahem… me!
One of my main struggles since becoming a Mother of 3 (almost 4 months ago) is finding time to eat over the course of the day. Life gets busy. The baby needs held, and my appetite tends to get put on the back burner. Not ideal for a breastfeeding Mom… Or any Mom for that matter.
As someone who is trying to remain accountable, consume healthier choices while also being able to care for a young infant and keep up with the demands of my 3 and 5 year old, PROTINIS™ Snacks have become a staple in my day-to-day meal regime. They’re made with delicious oven-roasted seasoned chicken and dried fruit and are a source of complete protein.
Sue Mah, registered dietitian and nutrition expert, says:
“Complete protein contains all of the essential amino acids your body needs and cannot produce on its own,” Some examples of foods with complete protein are milk, eggs, fish, meat and poultry, like the oven-roasted chicken bites in PROTINIS™. This type of protein helps slow down the digestion of food, keeping you feeling fuller, longer, and protein snacking can support physical activity and weight management goals by building and repairing muscles and tissues.”
Adults are encouraged to get 10% to 35% of their day’s calories from protein foods. That’s amounts to approximately 46 grams of protein for women. Breastfeeding mothers are also suggested to consume 20 grams more of protein on top of regular daily suggested amounts in order to maintain breast milk supply. (Source: WebMD)
PROTINIS™ ensures I stay on target with meeting daily suggested caloric amounts while also guaranteeing that I will have my hunger satisfied, and not comprised by merely living off of spinach and smoothies. I love to enjoy PROTINIS™ alongside a plate of chopped fruit or veggies. However, you can also add PROTINIS™ to a sandwich, wrap, pizza… the options really are endless.
