Low Calorie High Protein Food From Soybeans

Soybeans are just one of the few legumes that produce a variety of food products both for the health conscious and not so health conscious. It’s a versatile legume that gives our body the one of the important macro nutrient we need for body repair and energy, and that is protein.

Although most of our protein intake comes from eating meat and fish products, protein from soybeans doesn't have the dangerous cholesterol that they have and is very low in calories. But, we cannot eat soybeans ofcourse, check out the products these amazing beans can offer. Health conscious or not, these products are tasty and without the extra fat.

1. Soy Nuts.

Soaked soy beans then are either baked or roasted. Texture and flavor is much like regular peanuts but packs a lot more protein and less fat. They can be consumed as snack food, can be covered with chocolate or give an added crunch to that bowl of salad.

2. Soy Yoghurt.

These can be seen in various grocery stores. But, sometimes it can be really expensive and have the thinking that it’s not all naturale. Soy yogurt can be homemade with just soy milk and a store brought yogurt or starter powder. Once done, you can add berries, nuts or any fruit you like. Make your smoothies healthy and creamier with this yogurt. Add this to your bowl of cereal to get some protein goodness in the morning.

3. Soy Ice Cream.

- Who said healthy can’t be sweet, dreamy and creamy? Health conscious eaters can still enjoy the simple joys of eating ice cream with this product from soybeans. Much like the regular ice creams, this product can be infused with different flavors and fruits to even make it more healthy and decadent.

4. Soy Milk.

This is the common product from soybeans. Lactose intolerant people use this in place of regular milk. Packaged soymilk can be found in almost all grocery stores. They have flavor additives as well for those who cannot endure the full flavor of natural soy milk.

5. Tofu.

They are made similar to how cheese is made. Beans are boiled, curdled then pressed. There are a lot of varieties for tofu. You can get them in silken, soft, medium, firm and extra firm texture. Recipes that use these different types of tofu’s depend on the texture that is to be used. The firm ones are mostly baked or fried, added to hot sour soup while the softer ones are added to sauces and salads.

6. Cold Beancurd.

This dessert is very famous in Singapore. It’s like a custard pudding but much creamier and healthier ofcourse. It uses soy milk, jelly powder and soy milk powder. Much like the yogurt and ice cream, this product can be infused with different flavors and fruits. Cold beancurd is always enjoyed during hot and humid weather, which makes it very popular in Singapore.
