While some people have made negative claims about soy products, there is a wide consensus that soy is a beneficial part of a varied diet. Soy is packed with high-quality protein, is cholesterol-free, and contains healthy fiber and complex carbohydrates. Animal protein, on the other hand, has been linked to several types of cancer, is loaded with saturated fat and cholesterol (two of the leading causes of heart disease), and contains zero fiber.
It is, of course, very important to make sure that your diet is varied—the wider the variety of plant-based foods you eat, the more your health will benefit. Other tasty, protein-packed vegan foods include lentils, nuts, beans, peanuts, seeds, chickpeas, and whole grains. 🙂
