Skip the BBQ, get healthier protein from these sources:
Land animal sources of protein should be limited in your diet. Fish, especially the cold water fish; salmon, mackerel, tuna or herring, is a good replacement. As an added benefit, these fish contain a chemical called DHA, which has been shown to increase brain circulation and function.
To ensure adequate protein intake, a diet should include beans, lentils, nuts and seeds in addition to fish. Another excellent source of protein is soy milk or rice milk. Try bringing this delicious appetizer to your next BBQ.
