Welcome again to your weekly dose of nutrition!
In this article we will discuss good old fashion meat. Red meat, beef, steak, are essential diet components to a runner or any athlete. Red meat contains great amounts of iron and amounts of protein essential for recovery, performance and building of strength and muscle. As as alternative to these two red meats are fish, and chicken are great sources of protein to recover and build stronger muscles.
