Boost Breakfast with a Soy Smoothie
(NC)—Time pressed? Bored of breakfast fare? Try a soy smoothie for a change, blending whatever berries are in season.
Soy foods are versatile ingredients that can carry other flavors while adding their own plant-based punch to a healthy diet. No one is a bigger fan than Kevin Marriott, a soybean farmer from Petrolia, Ontario.
“A few years ago, I started paying more attention to good nutrition and exercise,” says Marriott. “For me, getting in the routine of eating a low-fat, high protein breakfast has really helped me get through the day, which is especially important during our busy growing season.”
As well as including protein-rich tofu in his favorite recipes, such as chili and stir-fry dishes, Kevin turns to soy beverages for a fast morning start. He shares the following recipe on the www.soyforlife.ca website.
