Today’s post is going to have to be short as my mom is coming to visit and I have a lot of stuff to do to get my house ready for her arrival. Doesn’t matter that I am almost 50, always looking for that approval from my mother. I have a lot of distractions in my life right now, and I feel a little “out of control” which is so not comfortable for me…so by having my house “together” I will at least feel like things are more under control than they actually are. 🙂
So my Wednesday post about soy (Soy: Health Food or Health Hazard?) generated a lot of traffic. It took way longer to research and write than I felt I had time for on Wednesday (which is why I am feeling a little panicked today about all the stuff I have to get done!), but it is worth it when I feel people are interested in the topic ~ thanks for reading! One more thought I wanted to share about soy…my intention as I always say is to educate, not preach or judge. I have been aware of some of the concerns surrounding soy for some time, but even I learned things when researching for the blog post. I don’t want anyone to feel “ignorant” for not knowing some of the information presented on Wednesday. I think we can all be forgiven, as we have been mislead by none other than the fabulous FDA, the same organization which is supposed to protect us. In 1999 the FDA approved this label on soy food products:
Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease.
