    April is National Soyfoods Month
    Many of us will agree weeknight meals provide great quality time together with others, but after a long workday it can be challenging to create something quick, healthy and tasty that everyone will enjoy. There are a ton of great-tasting soy inspired recipes that can be easily prepared to give families the healthy alternative they’re looking for at mealtime without any added hassle to their normal routines.

    Soyfoods can be found in any grocery store and are an easy substitute for dairy or meat in favorite dishes. The Fitness Gourmet and certified nutritionist, Patricia Greenberg, suggests incorporating easy soyfoods into family meals for excellent nutrition and taste:

    • Healthier: Children and adults across the US are selecting soyfoods daily to get high quality protein and numerous nutrients. Soyfoods are not only low in fat and cholesterol and lactose-free but are also a great source of iron, calcium, fiber, vitamin B-12, magnesium and zinc.


    • Quicker: Soy meat substitutes, such as soy ground and soy sausages cook up in a fraction of the time it takes for traditional meats. 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. They’re also ideal for pre-made meals and can be stored in the freezer or refrigerator for quick and easy meals later in the week.


    • Tastier: Your readers won’t have to worry about missing their favorite family meals, since soyfoods can easily replace or compliment traditional ingredients to make great tasting recipes, such as Shelled Edamame Chicken Stir Fry.

      I am so deeply saddened to share with you the news of Peabody, she passed away February 28, 2012. Robyn was a very special lady. I know, I personally thought she was the perfect southern lady. I met her a few times, as she lived right up the road from me. She had a kind and generous heart. I know we will all miss her dearly. She put up a valiant fight in her struggle with cancer.
