Whole Foods Recipes for a Healthy Lifestyle


About Soy

We no longer advocate the use of any soy products
except those that are fermented to relieve soy of its anti-nutrients. These include Sue's Kitchen Magic Seasoning and Bragg Liquid Aminos. We are substituting soy sauce, to taste, or a good quality chicken broth without MSG in these recipes. Safe fermented soy products include tempeh, miso, natto, and "naturally brewed" soy sauce (buy at health food store; make sure "naturally brewed" is listed on the label). 

There are better alternatives to dairy products than soy milk. The first is a safe source of raw milk. Locate what is available near your area: 

Other alternatives:

Buy pasteurized (not ultra-pasteurized) heavy cream and dilute it with water to your taste. This is good for cereals. Check health food stores for this cream; Trader Joe Markets also sells heavy cream that is not ultra-pasteurized.

Try coconut milk. See our Talking Pages article on The Benefits of Coconut Oil.

Prepare delicious Almond Milk from our Breakfasts Book.
