Foods with Protein
Proteins are foods that your body can use as
building blocks to make muscle or skin or bones. Some foods that have
a lot of protein in them are eggs and meat
and cheese and beans and fish.
In the ancient world, most people couldn't afford to eat a lot of meat or fish, so they got most of their protein from eggs and beans and cheese. If you ate a lot of bread, you would also get enough protein from the bread.
