Classifying macro nutrients can be tricky! Fats. Carbs. Proteins.
What makes a food a source of fat versus a source of a protein? Next time you go to the grocery store start reading the labels.

Ideally, the protein content should be significantly higher than the fat to be a good source of protein for your diet.
