Why I love my steak

First, animal source proteins are complete proteins, meaning they contain all nine essential amino acids that our bodies can’t produce on their own. These amino acids are crucial for building and repairing tissues, as well as for producing hormones and enzymes. Plant-based proteins, on the other hand, are often incomplete and may require combining different sources to get all the essential amino acids.

Animal source proteins are also rich in essential vitamins and minerals, such as iron, zinc, and B-vitamins. These nutrients play important roles in maintaining energy levels, supporting immune function, and promoting healthy skin, hair, and nails. In addition, animal source proteins are often more bioavailable than plant-based proteins, meaning they are more easily absorbed and used by the body.

Despite these benefits, it’s important to consume some animal source proteins in moderation as part of a balanced diet. Excess intake of certain animal source proteins, such as red meat, has been linked to an increased risk of certain health conditions, such as heart disease and certain cancers. However, incorporating a variety of animal source proteins, such as poultry, fish, and eggs, into your diet can provide many important nutrients and support overall health and wellness.

Oh and lastly, if you think you’re going to have decent argumentation to claim that plant-based is superior to animal based protein:

1. Shut up, 50 years of research says it isn’t
2. Not a discussion I’m going to have
3. If you want to hear the ins and outs of this subject from somebody with a real scientific background (me):
