Soy foods have been making the
headlines for their important role in hormonal
balance and part they play in the prevention and
protection of various cancers. Soybeans are a
powerhouse of proteins and among a few legumes
considered a complete protein, meaning they
contain all the essential amino acids. Soybeans
are relatively high in fat, the necessary, I
repeat, necessary unsaturated fats. The only
drawback to soy foods is that most of us are
unfamiliar with them. The following are just a
few items readily available to get your daily
dose of soy.
Soy Sauce, also known as shoyu,
is an Asian condiment made from soy, wheat and
salt. Wheat-free is called tamari (delicious)!
Reduced sodium types are available at health
Textured vegetable protein
(TVP) is a high protein food produced by
processing defatted soy flour to extract most of
its soluble sugars. Try using TVP in place of
meat in chili, stews, and casseroles. Very easy
to use, cheap and most people cant tell the
difference in "taco" meat and the like.
Several ready mix packages are available or try
soaking the large chunks in spaghetti sauce for
