I avoid soy. But we cook everything pretty much from scratch. Soy gets added to almost everything and I don’t think it’s good for you so we try to avoid it as much as we can. I think it’s because it’s a low fat protein filler. The less processed the better and the easier it is to avoid ingredients you don’t want. I do cooking days. Basically I spend all day Sunday cooking meals for the whole week, then freeze what we’ll need to re-heat or finish cooking later. It takes more time to cook from scratch but it’s rewarding and necessary for someone like me who has to avoid a lot of certain foods due to medical issues.

@wifegoodman:  how interesting. I eat tofu, soy sauce and edamame pretty regularly. I didn’t realise soy was “bad”, why are you avoiding it? I’m curious…

soy in small amounts is not bad but generally there is nothing nutricious about it. In infant boys it can make them impotent in later years. The problem with these products is that loads of artificial fillers are added for the profit of commercial mass production therefore removing any nutritional value and overriding the purpose in which they are used to begin with.

For those who use soy products , I suggest just doing a little reading on its side effects

There is also a nutritional difference between soy and fermented soy. Fermented soy is perfectly safe. But soy is highly estrogenic and can cause or worsen medical issues for people who are hormone sensitive.
