When it comes to protein, chicken is at the top of many people’s go-to lists.
It’s lean, you can use it in lots of ways, and it’s one of the most widely available forms of protein.
💪You probably already know that protein has tons of benefits for your body: it helps build muscle, strengthen bones, and can keep you feeling full and satisfied long after you finish eating.
But chicken also contains the amino acid tryptophan, which can boost your mood. MAJOR BONUS.
