Hi Rod,

Now there's a snack I can really get into...But very hard not to gobble. :roll:
Thank you,
xxSandy

:sunny: A diabetes discovery journey ...
Regarding snacks with antioxidant 'n fiber attitude ...

EZ Blueberry Compote ("final, final") :roll:

Thaw a quart of frozen wild blueberries, then stir in
1 tbsp elderberry syrup and 1/2 cup blueberry pie filling.
Then, slowly sprinkle on 1/2 tsp guar gum powder,
stirring frequently. Refrigerate, then stir again. 8)

Note: Food starch of pie filling is complemented
by the beneficial fiber of the guar gum and the
pie filling sugar is effectively diluted. :roll

:roll All about tofu: https://draxe.com/what-is-tofu/

Expecting to find positive info about tofu, I found that not all soy products are healthy ...
but fermented soy products (see article) are much better! 8)

So, temper with tempeh ... if you're soy-minded. ;)

Oh MY!!!! : :shock: Wow thank you, Rod. I just had some silken tofu last week. :( Okay time to try tempeh. :D and Natto...which I've never heard of... :scratch:
I believe my little grandson is getting soy products because he is allergic to milk. Better pass along this article.
Thanks again Welles.

:roll: That being said ... here's another opinion about soy:
https://drhyman.com/blog/2010/08/06/how ... your-life/

Bottom line: An occasional serving of quality tofu is healthy!

:idea: For a quick meal, try organic extra firm, made with sprouted non-GMO soybeans.
Nice with frozen mixed vegetables, olive oil, S&P (cook veggies in microwave,
then top with a slice of tofu, re-cover, and microwave just until heated;
sprinkle on olive oil and S&P when served). :roll

As for soy milk ... the dairy industry is now lecturing that
"milk" comes from cows and other animals ... only! ;)

:lol: Vegetarians lecture that milk is for baby animals!

Thanks for that follow up article, Rod.

I feel a little better now about the occasional bit of non GMO soy. :) But still would like to investigate the fermented varieties. I really took notice of this article because I recently watched several episodes of a series called Broken Brain by Doctor Hyman. (he's a physician from Cleveland Clinic I believe.)

:scratch: Wondering about edamame (young soybeans) as a substitute for tofu ...

Re: https://www.drweil.com/diet-nutrition/n ... d-or-good/

"There is no scientific data suggesting that eating whole soy foods leads to mineral deficiencies in humans." :o

"Most of us consume enough minerals in common foods to more than make up for the small amounts
of these micronutrients that might be tied up by phytates." 8)

:idea: Bottom line (apparently) ...
Many of the negative reviews about "bad foods" applies more to processed foods and is not characteristic
of a well-balanced diet that includes a generous variety of whole foods, minimally processed/not over-cooked.

Rod :)
