Ankeny, IA – Dads are important men in our lives and Father’s Day is a perfect time to get outside and dust off the grill if you haven’t already. This year when you make that wonderful Father’s Day meal, surprise those special men in your life with some soy.
Soybeans are often called the magical bean because of their health benefits and amazing versatility. Soy is full of heart-healthy protein, fiber and isoflavones, and when incorporated into your daily diet, soy has been shown to help with weight loss, heart disease, diabetes and lowering blood pressure and LDL cholesterol.
Its texture and mild taste make it easy to incorporate into any dish, whether it’s going on the grill, in a salad or dessert. So when you take out the grill this June to cook up Dad’s favorite meal, give him a little something extra special with soy.
