April is Soyfoods Month!

 
Happy Soyfoods Month!

I was lucky enough to recive a small package from Soyfoods that included some SoyJoy bars to review. I looooove SoyJoy bars- they're a tasty snack packed with good for you stuff. Plus they're gluten free! They're great to keep in your bag or purse for a quick snack or for when that 2:30 feeling hits.

eeny meeny miny-mo! they're all great in the car snacks!

April is National Soyfoods Month so it’s the perfect time to learn about the place for soy in a healthy diet and easy ways to incorporate it into everyday meals. Packed with protein and fiber, soyfoods are a tasty way to reduce calories, saturated fat and maintain your weight. Many soy products like veggie burgers cook and thaw faster than traditional meat sources so that means more time and convenience—who couldn’t use more of both? The Soyfoods Association of North America (SANA) provides information about the health benefits and nutritional advantages of soy. SANA offers fun recipes and convenient ways to incorporate soy into meals for everyone – from athletes to families. SANA is dedicated to spreading the word about soy, especially during National Soyfoods Month in April! Soyfoods aren’t just for vegetarians anymore. In fact, dishes made with soy are quick, tasty, and often healthier than traditional protein sources. Since April is National Soyfoods Month it’s the perfect time to tell your readers about the benefits and ease of cooking with soy!
