Why Soy Milk?

Life moves pretty fast these days! High stress environments, lack of time to prepare healthy meals and to make matters worse, when you try to eat out you’re surrounded by fatty fast foods and sugary convenience snacks. It’s no wonder that heart disease and obesity are becoming common place.

It seems that diet fads, and expert advise on health and nutrition, are constantly changing. Just when you’re finally able to put the latest health information into practice, the experts have changed their minds! Well fortunately, there are two things that haven’t changed and have stood the test of time.

They are:

1) Decreasing your saturated fat intake (animal fats – especially dairy) and

2) Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables.

The best part about these two things is that they are also often the easiest and  tastiest ways of altering your daily diet. Let me show you how easy it is…

Decreasing Your Intake Of Saturated Fats:

The health benefits of Soy have long been known by many cultures of the world. Soy is an excellent source of protein and is low in saturated fats and a recent article published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that replacing animal protein with soy protein could lower levels of total cholesterol, bad LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides. Probably the easiest and tastiest way of adding soy to your diet is by using soymilk to replace dairy from time to time.

Now, I know you may be saying “that all sounds great and all, except I don’t like soymilk. I’ve tried it and just don’t care for the taste.” Well, trust me when I say, that you can’t really say that until you’ve tried freshly made soymilk. Its flavour is amazingly delightful – light, creamy and smooth. It’s a totally different experience than anything you can buy in stores! Trust me on this one.

Besides, freshly made soymilk is an excellent way for you and your family to truly benefit from the goodness of soy.  Research has shown that diets low in saturated fats and cholesterol that also include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease. Just one serving of fresh SoyQuick Rural Style Soymilk™ provides over 9 grams of soy protein!  What an easy way to improve your health! Soy foods also fit the dietary guidelines for reducing risk of cancer, containing anti-carcinogens which may prove to be protective.

Or if soy really isn’t your thing, other milks made from nuts, grains or even other legumes are equally nutritious and delicious! For example, Oat milk is a tasty and nutritious alternative. Oat milk is high in fiber, cholesterol and lactose free and contains vitamin E, folic acid, as well as other trace elements and minerals. Oats are also rich in phytochemicals – naturally occurring chemicals in plants that help your body fight diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and stroke.

By combining wholesome grains, nuts, seeds, and beans you can make nourishing beverages, high in fiber, vitamin E, and folic acid. Great tasting milks for the whole family to enjoy! Not only are these milks delicious, but they are low in saturated fats and packed full of important nutrients that promote good health!

Adding More Fruits And Vegetables To Your Daily Diet:

Probably the quickest and easiest way to add more fruits and vegetables to your daily diet is by ‘juicing’. That is, using a juicer to extract the vitamin, mineral and enzyme rich juices of a variety of fruits and vegetables.

It seems that nutrition experts are forever telling us to eat more fruits and vegetables every day. Juicing is a very quick and easy way to do this. Besides, there’s nothing quite like fresh made juices – especially tasty blends like:

* Apple, Orange and Ginger. * Carrot, Celery and Lemon.
* Carrot, Tomato, Cucumber
and Basil.
* Apple, Carrot, Ginger and Lemon.
* Orange, Grapefruit and
Raspberries or Strawberries.
* Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon and Lime.

Both juicing and making vegetarian milks at home are ideal for people who want to make an easy transition to a healthier lifestyle, want to eat well AND save money, have food allergies, are pro-organic, Vegetarian or are environmentally conscious and concerned about eliminating tetra-pack waste from beverage containers.

Better yet, a soy/hazelnut hot chocolate, or maybe even a soy/almond latte with cinnamon on top. Now we’re talking!
