⭐️ SOY FOOD SOURCES INCLUDE edamame beans, miso, tempeh, tofu, soy milks
➰ ANY ADVICE? Go for your life! These foods are so yummy and nutritious with the power to make your meals so much more interesting. Whole soybeans (edamame) are the best, but processed soy foods like tofu and tempeh are also good 
➰ MAKING IT WORK Do you need an excuse to order edamame beans! They’re also so delicious added to salads, stir fries, soups, bean casseroles, etc etc 
➰ SOY IS derived from soybeans (the very same thing as edamame beans, part of the pea family)
➰ SOY DOES provide a complete, plant-based source of protein and in their whole form the beans provide lots of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals
➰ ANYTHING ELSE? Soy contains a lot of isoflavones (aka phytoestrogens), which have a similar structure to estrogen but they don’t behave in the same way as estrogen. A comprehensive review by the World Health Organization (WHO) concluded that soy is completely safe and evidence has consistently shown soy foods do not raise estrogen levels in men
