Soy . . . oh boy!

I'm trying to limit soy in my diet and it's everywhere I look! I was sipping my broth on yesterday's DD and decided to check the label. Yep, there too. The TV dinner I had last night . . . soy! I've been on a couple of my favorite restaurants' websites and soy abounds there too!

Apparently, um, I guess, just maybe . . . there's some merit to eating whole foods. I so despise cooking, but I may need to find a way to fit it into my schedule.

Anyone have any decent DD compliant convenience foods without soy?

Tina, I know you've got something for me!

I am still learning what works....

How about tuna fish? Got some at the Aldis for .79c a can (100 calories per can). They also have the pouches for $1 each if you like. I added dijonnaise and relish + celery. I had this the other day and it was yummy and filling with no cooking involved.

I am a weirdo though...I also like their smoked oysters in the can 150 cals each. I made a shirataki stir-fry with this yesterday. Cabbage + soy sauce +shirataki noodles+ oysters + 1 jalapeno pepper + minced garlic + beans sprouts + mushrooms (263 cals total). I had this yesterday for dinner, I just threw it all in a saucepan and let the noodles soak up the flavors (for about 15 minutes). It was pretty good.

I avoid soy as much as possible too. Being diagnosed with dairy and egg allergies has made that a bit tougher, however.

The past couple DD's I've been fasting for breakfast. Lunch is often the cabbage dish made with shrimp, 1/2 cup seasoned diced tomatoes, and some Italian Seasoning. I can't do cheese, but if I could, I'd add that. Supper is simply a piece of whatever protein I fix for the family (chicken breast, grass fed beef) and 1 cup of stir fry veggies. I use coconut oil or peanut oil for frying.

I have some almond milk yogurt, but it's about 150 cals, so I typically save it for UD's.

My SO Delicious Hazelnut coconut milk creamer is only 40 cals for 2TBSP and has no soy.

If I have a salad, I make my own dressing with a vegan mayo, which does contain soy, but Veganaise is at least Non-GMO (which when I have to do soy, I try to make sure it's non gmo).

I'm totally ok with eating pretty much the same thing every DD. I'm mykidsteacher on ************ if you want to friend me and look at my menus.

I'll come back if I think of anything more.

Please could somebody direct me to a good link where I can read about why soy is dangerous? Is it bad for everybody or just certain people?

I am very careful about what I eat but not soy. I eat tonnes of it, especially from when I was LCing....I am vegan and drink soy milk, soy yogurt and eat tofu, tempeh, edamame, tvp, etc. on all my UDs...and miso soup on my DDs!

I had always considered it to be a good source of complete protein for me...please can someone enlighten me?

Soy's an allergen for a lot of people and is also linked to thyroid problems. There's a lot of conflicting information, so I don't think everyone needs to worry about it too terribly much, but I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism and (too much or the wrong type of) soy can be a cause if you're already iodine deficient or predisposed. (I'm still learning, so don't quote me on this!)

Here's a link:

I have always avoided soy....unless it is fermented (as in soy sauce). Years ago when I researched it that's what I came to understand. But now more than that it's because almost all our soy is GMO. As well as corn. :/

You can't avoid it!!! I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it's in just about everything...

That being said, try to avoid the major sources and I think you will be fine. Stick to meats, veggies, fruit, bread, etc. Don't be so paranoid...you'll drive yourself nuts!

There are also some veggies that people with thyroid problems should avoid, but we can't all be perfect! Again, I try to stay away, but sometimes, I just want some broccoli. Plus, I like spinach, so I haven't given that up.

For the person that asked about soy being bad (sorry, I don't know how to quote 2 people in the same thread)...

Soy also is a phytoestrogen. You'll have to google and do your own research about it and come to your own conclusion. I also try to avoid soy based on what I've researched and my own beliefs.

Thanks! I've been looking at the veggies too, and they're pretty much all the ones I really like. Seems like they're not so bad if they are cooked. Cabbage, broccoli, spinach, etc. Grrr.

Thanks, hopefully it's not something i will have to worry about as I love my soy. I have been tested for thyroid problems in the past and no issues raised, but I will look at your link as a few people in my family do have hypothyroidism...

I know. It's in so very much that is manufactured food.

I try to avoid it for the most part. I am hypothyroid, and supposedly soy isn't very good for us.

I pretty much cook most stuff at home from scratch. It really doesn't take very much more time than opening boxes, and I have better control of the ingredients.

Well that sucks. My go-to DD lunch has been sliced cucumber with canned tuna on top. I was already concerned about the mercury, now I have to worry about the soy! I swear it's getting to the point where if you don't grow it yourself, it's not what it appears!

Beware canned/pouch tuna in "water"!!

Most have soy in the vegetable broth. Yes, it SAYS water packed, but it's actually in broth.

A few brands don't have soy, but I can't remember which off the top of my head. Trader Joe's Tonno is a fav of mine, bug I've heard Tonno is higher in mercury.
