Chorizo and eggs are a great protein option to add into your lifestyle! As a nutritionist I know that healthy eating should be sustainable and convenient without sacrificing any taste. Eggs is just a great source of protein, vitamin B12 that's is essential for healthy blood and red cells.



Protein can be super versatile; this comforting recipe for example, these other of my own recipes:

Check for your ingredients! I believe that it's so important to get quality ingredients no matter what type of lifestyle you follow or live by. When it comes to animal products I recommend getting grass-fed, wild-caught (or sustainably raised) and pastured raised whenever it's possible; that also means that animals were more likely to be treated better.
