We don't eat nutrients, we eat food and so it is imperative in any consideration of protein-rich food consumption to consider what other nutrients are present in these foods. Analyses of commonly-consumed protein-rich foods indicates that their consumption is associated with higher scores on a number of healthy-eating indices. In addition, commonly-consumed protein-rich foods also result in increased intake of certain nutrients that are considered nutrients of concern, especially in the elderly. Commonly-consumed protein-rich foods currently include meat, dairy, and eggs and the messaging to reduce consumption of these foods requires some consideration with respect to the potential for unintended reduced consumption of other nutrients.
