As you'll know now, I'm an ambassador for Weetabix Protein, so I wanted to talk to you today about the health benefits of protein in your diet and also give you the opportunity to win a year's supply of Weetabix Protein.
Weetabix Protein Big Biscuit tastes and looks just like normal Weetabix, but with higher protein levels and a bit of added crunch from the protein balls. It contains plenty of protein and other good things to help power you through the morning; lots of fibre, low salt, sugar and fat; as well as iron and other vitamins*.
Protein is essential for the body to grow, build muscle and repair itself. Protein is made from amino acids - your body either makes these itself or by modifying other amino acids e.g. essential amino acids from food. Animal protein i.e. meat and dairy should give us all the protein we need, but those who don't eat these foods or who have a very active lifestyle need to supplement this.
Average adults in the UK are advised to eat 0.75g of protein for every kilogram that they weigh. Some high protein foods such as supplement milkshakes can be unhealthy due to things such as additional fat and salt levels or excessively high levels of protein. Weetabix Protein is a healthy way to add protein to your diet.
I'm giving you the opportunity to win a year's supply of Weetabix Protein Big Biscuit. All you need to do to enter is follow the Rafflecopter widget instructions below. The giveaway is open to UK residents only and will close at 11.59PM on Friday 15th July 2016. Good luck!
