To stay healthy we should give our body everything it needs to work on a regular and balanced way. To achieve this, we have to select the food we eat due to its richness in essential nutrients, but also taking into account the absence of other components that we may be harmful. Is this correct and wise choice that is the magic of nutrition.
Proteins are essential to the formation of muscle tissue and cell repair, about 10-15% of the total caloric content of the diet should be derived from proteins. These are indicated in larger quantities in children who are growing, in althets, in surgical recovery and some disease which lead to a rapid weight and muscle mass loss.

The Need for Proteins Currently it leads to more intake of proteins of vegetable origin in order to reduce the consumption of saturated fats in excess, leading to a few pathologies. However we know that these vegetable proteins are not complete, for example, they do not have all the amino-acids required by the human body. It’s in the animal protein that we find the high biological value, providing all essential amino-acids which are easily absorbed.
Thus, to ensure consumption of the benefits of high biological value proteins without the disadvantages, normally associated with the consumption of meat, such as greater intake of cholesterol and saturated fats, we are recommended to choose white meats.

When we think of white meat, the first idea that comes up is chicken, turkey and duck meat, but the rabbit meat is also an excellent example of this type of meat. Rabbit meat is high and full in proteins, low-fat and provides vitamins of type B (B3, B6 and B12), potassium, phosphorus and iron. This meat is an ally of your healthy diet, easy and very tasty confection.
