I have a new obsession… Homemade soy yogurt!

Making yogurt is easy and delicious and like all DIY foods you make in your own kitchen… you know everything that went into it and it just couldn’t be fresher.

Soy yogurt is a plant-based food and is planet friendly by its very nature. Even the culture we use is vegan. When we choose DIY, we are avoiding packaging by decreasing waste pollution at the source.

In addition to reducing the proliferation of landfill package waste, when we eliminate waste before it has been created we minimize resources used in the production and delivery of goods. …read more of Make Delicious Dairy-Free Yogurt ~ Good For You and the Planet! here

Tempeh (tem-pay) is a traditional soyfood from Indonesia that has a chewy texture and hearty consistency made using a controlled fermenting process that binds whole soybeans into a rich cake with a nutty, smoky flavor.

Tempeh’s controlled fermentation of the whole soybean, make it the whole food choice high in dietary fiber, vitamins, and protein and tempeh is also a good source of vitamin B12.[1]

I always have the freshest, tastiest tempeh made with Laura Soybeans from Chambers Family Farms. Economical and easy to store, Laura Soybeans are non-GMO and the best soybeans for making tempeh without even a hint of beaniness.

The Chambers Family has been farming on the same fertile land in Iowa near the Minnesota Border for 131 years.

Samuel Chambers, a veteran of the Civil War and his wife, Elenora settled just outside Corwith Iowa in 1883.   The couple had traveled from Ohio and lived in the upper portion of the barn they built on the land until a house could be built. Wild hay was the cash crop at this time.

The family built a granary in which one room was lathed and plastered to serve as a school.  Some students traveled long distances and would stay at the Chambers house, if a storm came in.  …read more of Chambers Farms’ Outstanding Harvest and Unique Roasted Soy Flour here

Drinking soymilk is the quick and easy way to get the goodness of soy into your body by replacing unhealthy cow’s milk in coffee, cereal, smoothies and protein drinks!

Why Soymilk?

Humans have taken up the dubious habit of drinking the milk of another species. Cow’s milk is an excellent source of nutrition for calves and will multiply its weight 8 times over in 9 months. Unlike humans, once calves or any other mammalian species are weaned they never drink milk again.

Cow’s milk contains on average three times the protein of human milk and creates metabolic disturbances in humans that have detrimental bone health consequences.

Most cow’s milk has measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, up to 200 times the safe levels dioxins and as many as 52 powerful antibiotics, in addition to the blood, pus, feces, bacteria and viruses. It is a slow poison. …read more of Make Fresh Delicious Soymilk for Pennies in Just 20 Minutes! here
