Soy for Cooking
A healthy lifestyle is all about balance between nutritious meals and physical activity. Low in saturated fat, cholesterol-free soyfoods help you strike that balance. The key is to blend soyfoods into your life!
You can enjoy your favorite recipes, meals, and snacks with the added health benefits of soyfoods. Here are some simple tips to mix soyfoods into your healthy lifestyle.
A wide array of price-friendly soy meat alternative products can substitute for meat products in your favorite recipes. Give your hardy meals a healthy soy make-over with products like texturized soy protein, soy crumbles, soy burgers, soy chick’n tenders, and even soy sausage links.
For a breakfast casserole, use soy sausage links to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the meal. Make a low-fat chili with texturized soy protein. Try making a “hybrid” meatloaf by using fifty percent lean ground meat and fifty percent soy crumbles.
Boost the nutrition in your baked goods by blending soy foods into your favorite recipes. Soy flour, soymilk and soy oil are all easy baking ingredients.
Soy flour adds heart-healthy soy protein to tasty treats—simply replace up to 1/3 of a recipe’s required flour amount with soy flour. Eggs can also be replaced by cholesterol-free soy flour. One tablespoon soy flour plus one tablespoon water is equivalent to one egg.
Besides blending soy into your family meals and desserts, infuse soy foods into your snacks. Switch up your family’s snack routine with soy nuts, soy yogurt, soy bars, and soy chips. Soy nut butter can replace peanut butter in sandwiches, chocolate soy nut butter cookies, or celery sticks with soy nut butter for a crunchy treat.
