I have never done any research, but have always heard the commercialized messages that soy is good for you. I just read through this interesting previous thread about soy and its pros and cons. What I'm hearing is that if you can tolerate it, it is good for you. Is that correct? In other words, pre-Heather I never touched an ounce of soy in my life. Now I drink Soyfee (brewed soybeans) EVERY morning, have soy milk in my oatmeal, and make smoothies out of soy milk. Those are the daily staples and then I might add some more if I make something requiring a dairy alternative. I am tolerating it extremely well. So am I becoming healthier for it? Personally, I'm not sure, but as long as you find it a suitable IBS sub for dairy I don't see any harm. (besides improving the IBS) Or is there such a thing as "too much of a good thing?" with soy? Oh I'm sure there is, as with anything. Also, I know that the soy milks often say, "not suitable as infant formula." I was wondering if soy is beneficial for children too (toddler/preschooler). Here is where I may be able to help you with WHY that has been put on labels. Here is a VERY old, 2004 post that you may want to read throughout, plus all the good replies. I have been sharing my smoothies with them (which has been a great way to get them to eat some fruits they dislike) and I was wondering if using milk instead of soy milk at their age would be better. If it's very little it probably doesn't hurt but if you don't want them to have soy or dairy then you could always use a rice or nut milk alternative. I happen to like the nut milk alternatives so much better than the rice, especially the Almond and Hazelnut ones. Hope this helps a little, and welcome to the boards. Heather's diet is amazing, isn't it?
Kandee
Any thoughts? thanks.
