Is Tofu for You?

Tofu is a delicious, easy-to-prepare protein. It's a great way to add some variety to your meals, and it's so good for you! And tofu is only one of a range of soy-based foods out there to choose from. These foods tend to be low in calories and fat, and they're amazingly versatile! Here are some easy ways to incorporate soy foods into your day:

Soy nuts: If you're new to soy and soy products, soy nuts are a great place to start! They're made from whole baked soybeans, and they make a healthful, crunchy snack. Take some along with you to work!

Soy milk: This tasty beverage has cow's milk beat when it comes to being low in cholesterol, saturated fat, and calories. Cow's milk does contain more calcium, though, so why not keep some of both kinds in the fridge? That's the way to get all your nutrients! Soy milk comes in regular and light forms and even in flavors like vanilla and chocolate. Add some to your morning coffee instead of milk or half-and-half!

Edamame: These green soybeans — sometimes eaten right out of the pod — are a delicious, amazingly healthy way to get your soy. You can find them in the fresh produce or freezer section of your grocery store, or order them at your favorite Japanese restaurant, seasoned with a dash of salt, as a scrumptious starter to your meal. They even make an incredible hummus!
