SOY: Interesting Information

Soy beans:

                Some interesting articles

I have read different information over the years about SOY.  It is good for you, it is bad for you?  I have found it to be very confusing.  I must say, I don’t seek out to eat soy products on purpose (except I do like soy sauce) but it sounds like it is in more products than we even realize.  I guess that is one more reason to try to stick to whole food eating.

I have read the articles that I am including here and I will read them again and again, because so far I am still a little  or maybe a lot confused.

That said, here are two articles that I have found that give some good information (I think) about soy, what might be good about it and what might be bad about it. But like more and more foods out there I am really tired that we have to worry (if you care) about them being GMO.

Here is the article Dr. Oz has written.

And here is a post/article that I found on

I have now read about a products to replace my soy sauce with.  It is called “Coconut Secret Raw Organic Vegan Coconut Amino’s.”  you can find it here,  I am going to look for it at Trader Joe’s next week when I go North.

    Yes, I was reading about this recently and as a result switched from soy milk to almond milk. I too read conflicting reports, my very simplified conclusion for right now is that fermented soy is good, GMO soy and soy in processed foods (pretty much one and the same I think) is bad and we don’t need to be eating large quantities of it.

      I have never bought Soy milk, I do buy Almond milk, unsweetened. Next I am going to find “Coconut Secret Raw Organic Vegan Coconut Aminos.” It is a replacement for Soy sauce which I use in my Stir fries. I found it on Amazon, I am going to look for it at Trader Joe’s.
