Who needs meat and seafood? These 15 recipes are packed with plant-based zinc! You’ve probably seen a bottle of zinc supplements in the pharmacy, but have you ever wondered what it is and what it does for your body? Zinc is a micronutrient. To break it down easily, macronutrients like potassium, magnesium, and calcium are needed for energy, muscle maintenance, a healthy appetite, and other important bodily functions. Micronutrients, on the other hand, are individual vitamins, amino acids, and minerals that also help our bodies thrive. Because our bodies do not produce zinc on their own, a daily intake is needed to help maintain these functions. Zinc helps our immune system function and is essential for healthy pregnancies. While some types of meats and seafood are high in zinc, we can easily get it from plant sources too!
