Get your protein
We do need to eat some protein with every meal but you don’t always have to add meat to ensure you get it. If your meal contains fish, lentils and beans, grains like rice, quinoa, and bulgar wheat, eggs, yogurt, cheese, nuts or seeds, you’re probably already eating enough. Try this protein-rich salad idea. Add a small tin of mixed beans (rinse them in a sieve under the tap first) to cooked, cooled brown rice and sprinkle with a few drops of sesame oil to taste. Garnish with fresh coriander and you’ve got a delicious, anti-ageing salad that contains all eight of the vital amino acids that protein supplies.
