Proteins are important for bodily functions. Virtually everything that happens in our body cells is dependent on protein. Which is why it is important to choose proteins that supply the essential amino acids we need.
Protein in porridge and muesli
People sometimes forget that grains and legumes are rich in proteins. For example, oats contain around 10 % protein and a very good composition of amino acids. Eaten with some milk, such as in porridge and with muesli, you get the full benefit of the protein in oats.
