With all the extra exercising everybody seems to be doing lately I thought this post would be a useful reference. 
When you are working your body hard it is so important to get a good source of quality protein, especially into your post workout meal, in order to help your muscles grow and repair. 
 This list is a useful reference, but I would also put it out there: just because you’re a meat eater does not mean you need to rely on the meaty options! Cottage cheese, beans and quinoa are just as nice and add a little variety too! 
Here’s to happy muscle reparation for you all! ;-)
