Review: Macronutrients

rice_yogurt_lentils
Did you select breakfast, lunch and dinner?

You are correct. Yogurt,  lentils and rice and egg are all complete proteins.

Remember complete proteins contain all essential amino acids and generally come from animal foods, including yogurt and eggs.

However, when two incomplete proteins are combined, such as rice and lentils, a complete protein is formed.   These are often called complementary proteins.
