      I'm using all soya foods (milk, beans, tofu...) for my mom used to cook it. So it's kind of a habit...
      Some benefits of soya: reduction of cholesterol, easing of menopause symptoms, prevention of osteoroposis

    I use soya milk in drinks and to make sauces etc. Some contain added omega 3 too, which is great.

      This omega3 protects us from cancer. Is it not?

    Before introducing soya into your diet, I strongly advise you to do a bit of research about possible negative effects of soya. 

    If you run an Google search "Dr Mercola +soya", for example, you'll find information which suggests soya may be rather harmful to health, rather than a benefit to it as is popularly believed.

    I am a vegetarian, however, I keep my soy/tofu intake low. Why? Just about any food in excess is a bad thing.

    Personally, when I ate too much soy products I'd get lightheaded, and felt like my memory was not as sharp.

    I am 23 and was getting a little worried. So, I kept my soy-intake to 2-3 times a week, replaced my soy milk with almond milk, and kept my tofu at the restaurants...voila, I'm back to normal.

    Otherwise, soy products never were too tantalizing to me, and by cutting it out it made me learn recipes and to cook better as a vegetarian. smile

      My Chinese partner cooks up her own from the beans - it is nice enough for me if she cooks it with about 5% maize (dried chopped sweet corn) - she drinks gallons, maybe it is this that makes her so beuatiful ? big_smile
