We’ve loved seeing all the party faces in our recent #ownyourparty competition. Now that the New Year has begun, it’s a good time to keep your party selves in tip-top shape with a few hot tips from internationally recognized dieticians to help you eat better and feel better.
1) Food is always the best way to get your nutrients. Supplements and vitamins can help, but your body absorbs nutrients in foods much more effectively. Makes sense, right? There’s a reason why restaurants don’t put vitamins on the menu. They’re just not tasty.
2) Lean meats like many cuts of grassfed beef and lamb are a great way to get not just the protein, but also the “good kind” of iron (heme iron), zinc, and vitamin B-12. You can’t get B-12 from your veggies, it’s only in animal proteins.
3) Lamb is an excellent source of zinc and selenium, which both help support your immune system. With the ankle biters bringing home colds from daycare and school, and everyone at work coughing and sneezing, you need all the help you can get! How does the saying go…a lamb chop a day keeps the doctor away? Something like that.
