Too Much Soy?

We’re not here to chime in on the great soy debate, but if you find you’re getting all soyed-out there are plenty of soy-free xgfx eats you can enjoy. So many of those commercial vegan meats are chalked full of gluten and it seems like soy is sneaking its way into everything these days. If you’re looking for some soyless xgfx options, and are searching for a few more protein-filled foods without all the soy,¬†we’ve got a few suggestions for you.

High Protein Whole Foods

  • Amaranth

    Makes for some delicious breakfast porridge (either slightly soft & barely sweetened with dried fruit & adorned with raw nuts or cooked even softer for a grit-like consistency). Amaranth can also be popped, used in bars & cookies.

  • Artichokes

    Add them to salads, stir-fries, xgfx pizzas; make a tasty dip, enjoy cooked with a tasty dipping sauce, or in your xgfx pasta dishes & casseroles.

  • Beans, Peas, & Legumes

    Black, pinto, & kidney are great in mexican style dishes & southern/cajun-style eats. Chickpeas to make hummus & falafel, xgfx chickpea cutlets, simply roasted and spiced how you like them, placed atop salads & tossed in xgfx pastas. Adzuki beans can be sweetened & smashed to stuff mochi & sesame balls – they’re tasty in stir-fries & soups. Black-eyed peas are great in stews, alongside roasted tomatoes, & of course, hoppin’ john. Peas & lentils are great for making soups, dahls, & chilis. Don’t forget – pretty much any bean is perfect for making bean burgers! There are so many beans, peas, and legumes out there and so many ways to enjoy them all! Don’t forget about burmese tofu and adding bean flours into your baked goods and cheezy sauces.
