Nowadays soya is regarded as one of proteineous food item. Are you using soya? What are the benefits we get from soya?
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.
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.
Soya isn't for everyone, there are pros and cons, not everyone react well to it
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 ?
welcome Csjun, but soya is recommended for one and all irrespective age groups. Strongly agree with you , when it comes for changing of food habit.

I am dairy free but don't use soya milk because I have read that it is bad for you. My dad reckons it is not bad for you and all the negative stuff about it on the internet has been put out by the meat industry. Anyone know I'm feeling veyr confused?

Eating too many milk productsI have found that so many of us are being forced to like foods with milk products in them. When I see a menu, it always seems to have things laced with cheese. Do you like cheese or are you trying to cut down on your intake ?
