March's harvest of the month is Maine Protein! Protein sources can be animal or plant-based and provide our bodies with calories (or energy) and functions as a building block for bone, muscle, skin, and blood cells. Did you know that legumes such as beans, peas, and lentils are some of the most ancient foods consumed by humans, dating back to the days of hunter gathers, about 12,000 year ago! Check out our Protein Resource Page found HERE, as well as recipes ideas found HERE. Bon appetit!
