My family is 100% vegan. We rely on Soy and soy products as a main source of protein. Why? It’s one of the most complete proteins in nature and provides considerably other health benefits. I’m not a scientist or nutritionist, but here are some reputable sources that share the truth about the positive health affects of Soy.
One thing is for sure and we didn’t consider this, the processed soy like burgers and tofu dogs are far removed from the nutritional health benefits of Soy because of, yep, you guessed it, the processing. We are going to increase vacuum packaged Tofu that is organic and a great replacement for animal meat. So far, we have been able to use it to cook Tofu alternatives of our favorite dishes; Teriyaki Tofu, Adobo Tofu and Orange Tofu. Our last experiment was a Filipino dish, Pinoy Bistek.
So far Soy has had a significant positive impact on the health of my children, wife and myself. :)
