My good friend David sent this article on the history of soybeans. They have been around for a long time. They provide healthy nutrition, protein and are good in so many different kinds of recipes. Search the web for soybeans and try different ones. People enjoy veggie-burgers made from soy, humus, soy milk as a healthy alternative to cow’s milk, and many more. Try different things and enjoy new foods that are really healthy.

What makes us eat certain things?

Have you ever asked yourself why we eat or drink certain things? I have spoken, in this BLOG, about the problems associated with drinking milk. We are the only mammal that drinks the milk of another mammal on a regular basis. We are the only mammal that drinks milk beyond a young age. Think about early man and woman. Walking across a field with cows and one says to the other, “I wonder what the taste of that animals insides is like”. Maybe they were thirsty and saw young cows drinking from the mother. It is weird to fast forward to today and see every store with cow’s milk in it. We call it a staple as if it were needed for life. When in fact it causes cancer, allergies and a slew of other illnesses. Don’t even get me started on snails!

Jackie, this one is for you…

Dr. Greger says research shows eating too much soy can eliminate the benefits of a meat-less diet. Too much of anything is not good! What is too much? He recommends 3-5 servings a day as a healthy benefit. Watch his video at the above link. Not all fake meat products are made from soy!
