Two Servings Per Day
Protein provides amino acids that are the building blocks of the body. It is important for healthy bones, teeth, muscles, brain, everything! If you find that you are suffering from fatigue, swelling, and/or a lack of appetite, you may not be consuming enough protein.
We encourage our students to find protein sources that are either free-range and eating what nature intended (i.e., cows are supposed to eat grass, not corn), or to eat alternative sources that are not genetically modified. 
Many people gravitate to tofu if they don’t eat meat.  Unfortunately, soy is one of the most likely crops to be genetically modified.  Legumes and quinoa are two alternative protein sources that you can consider as an option if you are not preparing free-range poultry or beef.  There are some non-GMO, organic options for tofu available on the market if you really love your tofu!

Here is an idea to add protein to your diet: DIY chicken broth 
Boil a whole chicken for two hours.  Then, remove the chicken from the broth and strip the meat from the bones.  Finally, return the bones to the stock along with two tablespoons of vinegar to maximize the calcium leaching from the bones.  Simmer this for 12 hours, and you can use this stock is the base for all your cooking for the rest of the week.  You can use stock for soups, and as the liquid base when cooking your legumes and grains.
