April is National Soy Foods Month, and marking the occasion is easy! Simply enjoy soy-based ingredients, including Tofutti’s wide selection of products, by incorporating the plant-based protein in all your favourite recipes.
Why celebrate soy? Dieticians agree that, like animal protein, soybeans contain all the essential amino acids necessary to be considered a complete source of protein. Plus, soybeans have the added benefit of being low in saturated fats and cholesterol and rich in fibre, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Additionally, Tofutti’s dairy-free frozen desserts, cream cheese and sour cream alternatives and soy cheese slices feature only the best quality, non-genetically-modified soy.
Moreover, soy products are easy to prepare, and can easily be found in your local grocery store. For these reasons, and many more, soy-based foods are a healthy and efficient option to include in your family’s dietary routine. Read on for delicious ways to include soy in your next meal.
Instead of dairy, try splashing soy milk on your morning cereal. Alternatively, consider adding Tofutti Premium Vanilla Frozen Dessert to a nutrient-rich fruit smoothie to fuel your day.
Stack a sandwich with all your favourite toppings, including fresh veggies and soy-based deli alternatives. Don’t forget to slap on Tofutti Soy Cheese Slices for added flavour!
For a healthy, low-calorie alternative to animal protein, replace meat in a recipe with firm tofu. Tofu is made of soy curd and mimics the texture of meat. It also absorbs the flavours of sauces and other ingredients in a dish to be super tasty.
Enjoy a wide variety of soy-based snacks, including nutrition bars, soygurt and soy puddings. Additionally, Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese tastes great spread on bagels or crackers, and Tofutti Sour Supreme makes for delicious dips to enjoy with veggies, nachos and pita chips.
Happy National Soy Foods Month!
