Healthy eating is proving to be quite a challenge due to the misconception about healthy foods being bland and tasteless. But in reality, eating nutritious food is not that difficult. In fact, it may surprise you to find it delicious.
There‘s a lot of food out there that don’t require any sacrifice and give up your favorite guilty food pleasure altogether. It’s just a matter of snacking smart and finding a better, nutritious alternative to your indulgences.
Take the unassuming soya, for example.
Soya is a good source of complete protein. A complete protein is one that contains a significant amount of all the essential amino acids needed by the human body for optimum health. Soy protein is the nutritional equivalent of meat, eggs and dairy, and can therefore replace animal-based protein.
Soy has been under the spotlight as a possible “superfood” that can reduce the risk of certain health problems. With an impressive nutrient profile that is high in dietary fiber and protein, cholesterol-free, and an excellent source of phytochemicals and minerals like phosphorus, potassium, calcium and iron, soy is by far, the best and most complete nutritional, beneficial plant food we can all take advantage and put to good use.
Amazingly, there are many types of food that we love which can be made or derived from soy. From ice cream to burgers, milk, breads, butter, cheese, nuts and yes, even chips!
Soyami Soya Chips not only tastes good, but it’s actually good for you, too. Made from 100% naturally grown soya, it is high in protein and fiber. It has no MSG, no trans fat and no added preservatives. No wonder it’s approved and highly recommended by The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Fitness Nutritionist Chef, Nadine Tengco, as part of the meal plan. “Unlike animal products, soya is low in saturated fat which makes a good source of cholesterol-free and low fat protein. Soyami Soya Chips provides a healthier snack alternative to the contestants. The Soyami range of snack products contains the right amount of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber, while having reduced amounts of fat and sodium.”
She also adds, “Mindless snacking contributes to the weight gain in most of the contestants. The high protein content of Soyami Soya Chips will significantly reduce the sugar spikes that often occur in high-carb, high-fat snacks. And because Soyami Soya Chips comes in properly portioned packaging, it gives the contestants just the right amount of calories per pack, which would not in any way, compromise them in their quest to lose weight.”
Plus, not only did Soyami Soya Chips pass with flying colors on nutritional and taste tests, she also gave it excellent marks on a snack versatility test, “Aside from just being a stand-alone snack, Soyami Soya Chips can be creatively used in preparing and cooking dishes. For instance, instead of using breadcrumbs, you can use crushed Soyami Soya Chips for that added crunch while increasing protein content of the dish. You can also crush the chips coarsely and sprinkle on soups and salads as you would on croutons. And you can make nachos healthier with Soyami Soya Chips partnered with your favorite salsa dip.”
