Asian Vegetables & Tofu Stir Fry

Healthy Living, Recipes

This recipe is a great way to incorporate soy foods into your diet. Soy products like tofu, edamame, and soy milk are plant-based sources of protein, vitamins, minerals, and other phytochemical that benefit health.

There is much confusion about soy because of its isoflavone content, which is similar to the hormone estrogen. Yet science has demonstrated that both men and women actually reduce their cancer risk, severity, and recurrence rate when they include soy foods in their diets. If you have any questions about including soy in your diet, talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian.
