http://iowapublicradio.org/newsroom.php – You Say Edamame
I was just reading in Refrigerated & Frozen Foods Retailer about this cool new fortified tofu! Nasoya Tofu Plus is a fortified tofu. It is fortified with vitamins B-2, B-6, B-12 and D-2 plus calcium. It is made from premium quality organic soybeans, sodium and cholesterol free. Sounds pretty good to me!
Excellent segment on edamame. The guest is fantastic.
SliderBarCafe Introduces Hot New Summer Menu To Cool You Off
(Palo Alto, CA; Summer 2010) – For ultimate convenience, SliderBar Café, the new fast-casual slider restaurant and bar in Palo Alto, is introducing BBQ In a Box. The promotion will run through Labor Day (which is September 6th for those of you who forgot). The package for only $7.99 will include:
BBQ In A Box
Two top-selling BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders
Choice of iced tea or lemonade
It is a great way to grab a quick meal and enjoy it at your favorite summertime spot. Now you can enjoy your grill on the go.
Just in time for the hot summer months, SliderBar Cafe also announces the newest additions to their menu. As well as the Niman Ranch Pulled Pork BBQ Slider with fresh coleslaw, for those who’d rather chill than grill, SliderBar is introducing a Curry Chicken Salad Slider and a Chili Tofu Salad Slider.
“We are very excited about our new summer sliders. We designed the new BBQ In A Box for a fun quick alternative for everyone’s favorite food because one slide doesn’t always fit all,” says owner Ashwani Dhawan.
SliderBarCafe is a fast-casual American cafe and bar featuring customizable slider sandwiches and salads at affordable prices. SliderBarCafe in Palo Alto is located at 324 University Avenue. The restaurant is open Sunday – Wednesday from 7 am – 11 pm and Thursday – Saturday from 7 am – midnight. The restaurant can be reached by calling (650) 322-7300 or fax to (650) 322-7301.

Summer is here! Time to go outside and have fun! This is the time of the year we are enjoying the warm weather and outdoor activities such as bicycling, swimming or gardening. When it is time to take a break and refresh your body, think about healthy and delicious drinks and snacks. Soy is the perfect answer.
We asked culinary students to develop some recipes and one that fits the refreshing and yummy category is Silky Cranberry Cheery Freeze pops (think push-up pops). It is great for kids and adults alike! And you can make ahead and have ready in the freezer.
Another quick and easy drink idea is a smoothie. The great thing about smoothies is that soymilk, tofu, soy yogurt and any combination of them make a great base for smoothies. Then just add your favorite fresh or frozen fruit and blend in a blender and within minutes you have a healthy drink.
Want to have your family eat more fruits and vegetables? Try these quick and easy dips. Make ahead and have on hand when you are looking for a delicious and nutritious snack.
All of the ideas keep you kitchen cool too!
Enjoy the nice weather!
