Happy Monday HelloFreshers! Many of you probably woke up feeling extra fatigued this morning from all those wings and fried foods last night during the Super Bowl. To help you ward off that sluggishness, today’s post will be dedicated to energy-boosting proteins!
A recent study by University of Cambridge found that proteins help perk us up when our energy levels begin to dip. Lucky for you, our delivery this week is packed with protein-rich foods so you’ll be feeling energetic all week at work.
Tofu, a highly nutritious, protein-rich food, is made from the curds of soybean milk. Not only does consuming tofu boost your energy levels, but it also protects against cardiovascular diseases. Tofu is a great meat alternative so don’t be afraid to experiment with it in your favorite dishes.
If you’re having a long day and are in need of a pick-me-up, edamame is the perfect snack that will do the trick. Its high protein content can also help with weight loss so make sure that snack drawer is always full!
Like most seafood, snapper is rich in protein and does not contain carbohydrates. The firm, mildly flavored fish can be prepared very simply and served broiled, baked, steamed, poached or grilled so have fun with it!
Enjoy and have a great week!
