Description of Product: “Spring is a busy season – and after a long workday it can be a challenge to create something healthy, tasty, and quick before it’s time to head out the door to baseball practice. Luckily soyfoods – a healthier source of protein – can hit all three marks!
April is National Soyfoods Month, and it’s a great time to show how easy it is to add soy to your everyday diet. Below are some reasons why you should:
· Healthier: Soyfoods are rich in nutrients and promote healthy eating: fruit soy smoothies with soymilk or soy yogurt are a fun way to ensure proper calcium, and soy burgers or soy crumbles in place of ground beef are a great way to reduce calories, cholesterol and saturated fast. Soyfoods are also a great source of iron, fiber, vitamin B-12, magnesium and zinc.
· Quicker: Soy meat substitutes, such as soy ground, cook up in a fraction of the time it takes for traditional meats, and it’s ideal for pre-made meals that can be stored in the freezer or refrigerator. Cooking with soy also provides an excellent opportunity for families to spend quality time together because unlike traditional meats, there is little concern about cooking through or cross contamination, so kids can be more involved in the meal preparation.
· Tastier: Soyfoods make delicious meals. They are great as a staple ingredient or used as a substitute in a favorite recipe, such as Shelled Tofu & Vegetable Enchiladas with Red Chili Sauce. (Click here for more easy way to enjoy soy.)”
Review of Product: I received several products to try that are soy based. I got the SoyJoy bars, the WholeSoy and Company coupons, West Soy Organic Original SoyMilk, and coupons from WildWood Organics. The products were all delicious! My father loves the Soyjoy bars so I gave him those to eat and he liked the mango coconut flavor the best. The soymilk was shelf stable which we really like to have on hand and Noah didn’t mind when I used it in his cereal recently! The soy yogurt was a new idea to me and I found the yogurt super creamy and didn’t miss the milk at all!
Giveaway: The folks at the Soyfoods Association of North America have graciously decided to give one (1) lucky Nicole’s Nickels winner a soy foods prize package including products and product coupons!
