High Protein Appetizers for Motherís Day!

By: Fitnall


Motherís Day is coming up. A great opportunity to celebrate the presence of our mother or commemorate her life. Being a parent is probably the hardest job in the world. So, try to make it special for your mom!

So when celebrating at home, itís great to have a well-rounded meal. One of the things that I have witnessed many times is that most of the appetizers are mostly carb-focused. Being in the fitness industry, I eat protein with all of my meals and am very aware of all the available macronutrients around. Occasionally, celebrating the holidays leaves my body missing some of my protein requirements.

Here are few simple but fast, delicious and highly nutritious high-protein appetizersÖ Enjoy!!!
