Eat Soy in Moderation

by Stef

Take Everything in Moderation

Too much of anything is not a good thing and these words of wisdom extend to our humble friend soy.

Soy is a known source of protein and calcium. With that in mind I include it regularly in my diet in the forms of tofu, soya yoghurt, veggie mince, soya sauce and soya butter but I'm always aware of how much I eat daily. For example, if I'd had tofu with soya sauce for dinner, I wouldn't eat any other forms of soy for the rest of the day.

For me, it's all about moderation within a balanced diet. A diet based almost exclusively on soya products is obviously not going to be a healthy one, just as a diet based solely on broccoli or walnuts would hardly be ideal either.

While I acknowledge concerns about genetically modified soya bean crops and possible effects of pesticides, I would definitely endorse including a moderate amount of non-GM, organic soy in one's diet.
