Here are 5 reasons why you should diversify the protein sources in your diet:

1) Plant-based proteins cost less than animal proteins. 💰
2) Red meat and processed meat have been linked to a higher risk of developing cancer, especially colorectal cancer. 🥩🥓
3) Beans and peas, also known as legumes, are a very good source of fibre, folic acid, zinc, antioxidants (anthocyanins) and iron (if eaten with a source of vitamin C), and they contain less fat than meat. 💪🏻
4) Fish is an important source of omega-3. Omega-3 plays an important role in the prevention of many chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer (other sources such as walnuts and linseed are good as well). 🐟
5) Eating more plant-based foods is a great way to be environmentally friendly. The production of legumes requires less water and it pollutes less then the animal industry. 🌎

Having a diversified diet will allow you to have many benefits that come with different foods. It will also give different tastes to your meals and will bring you pleasure too! 😊
