Protein & the Sweet Tooth

Have you ever been called “a sweet tooth”?  What about craving something sweet—even if you usually don’t?  According to U.S. herbologist, Holly Hayward, the sweet craving is an important message from your body that you need protein.  The cleaner & leaner the protein, the better.  So, next time you crave something sweet, reach for lean cuts of poultry to feed your muscles & give your body what it has actually requested.

For vegans, lean plant protein options abound.  Load up on green & leafy vegetables paired with prepared beans or textured vegetable protein (called TVP, for short).

The options are endless!  Next time your brain says that you want a sweet treat, give your body some solid, lean protein.
