Incorporate Other Meats
Boneless, skinless chicken breast is a protein staple for many, however the variety of recipes for it can be limiting. Other proteins that should be added to stir-fry are shrimp, tofu, and beef. For starters, three ounces of shrimp contains 18 grams of protein and betaine, an important nutrient that regulates levels of homocysteine—a hazardous amino acid that stimulates inflammation, something that could impede recovery time. Shrimp also contains arginine, which is an important nitric oxide (NO) producer, creating that glorified pump. Made from bean curds via soy milk coagulation, tofu is one of the most versatile foods, taking on the flavor with whatever it’s cooked in. Low in calories, one cup of tofu packs an easy 20 grams of protein. In regards to this next meet, the buyer needs to be aware that the leanest cut for beef is the healthiest—90 percent lean. Three ounces of 90 percent lean beef offers 21 grams of protein, nine essential amino acids, and an impressive micronutrient profile—thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6 and B12. Several of these micronutrients are involved in energy metabolism. Beef also provides the body with two grams of creatine, allowing you to lift heavier.
