Do you get enough protein in your diet?
According to the Three Bridges National Protein Day Survey—a nationwide survey that sheds light on the eating and nutrition habits of Americans—37% of Americans don’t get enough protein.
That’s why in honor of National Protein Day (2/27), Three Bridges is giving away a free protein-packed Simple Dishes meal to the first 1000 people who download the coupon on their homepage [http://www.threebridges.com].

65% of Americans say buying high protein foods is important when at the grocery store and 74% said that it is important that each of their meals be protein-packed. And you can bet the 21% who say they don’t pay attention to the protein will from now on.
