Soy-Delicious: Not All Plant-Proteins Are Created Equal

  • Soybeans are comparable to animal sources in terms of protein quality and offer nutrients, including fiber too!
  • Soy is a complete high-quality protein and one of the few available plant-based proteins that provides all the essential amino acids in the appropriate amounts to meet the needs of children and adults.
  • Research suggests resistance training supplemented with soy protein may result in similar gains in muscle mass and strength as animal protein.
  • The versatility of soyfoods and soy products makes them a quick, easy and nutritive option for your healthy plate. Popular soyfoods include: soymilk, tofu, soy snack bars, edamame, soy fortified cereal and soy-based burgers.
Reduce Food Waste

Leftovers are a great way to use foods in your fridge that otherwise would go to waste. Try to plan one meal per week that involves leftovers.
