Soy Simple Summary and Giveaway!

This post is part of the Soy Simple campaign. Read my disclosure here.

This is my last Soy Simple post!

So I guess soy will go back to being all complex.

In all seriousness, I agreed to this campaign because I do consume a decent amount of soy–mostly through soy milk (mmmm soy lattes) and Luna bars. I’m not a vegetarian, but I do also really like tofu.

Not just when it’s in a bagel, although that is definitely my favorite way to consume it.

There are a million compelling reasons to go vegetarian, and while I probably never will, I definitely occasionally rely on non-meat protein. It’s cheaper and better for the planet–and it helps to vary your diet.

Below are all my soy posts, if you’re interested:

January:

Protein on the Go: how to get more protein in your snacks

Another 2012 Goal: More Protein: my goals to get more protein in my diet this year

December

Holiday Meal Makeover: or, how I snuck soy bacon into Christmas dinner.

Tips for Surviving Holiday Eating: Spoiler alert: more protein.

Drinking My Protein: mmm, protein smoothies

Soy Snacks: more soy snacky goodness

November

Happy Thanksgiving!: again, more sneaking soy into family holiday meals

What Fuels Your Workouts?: if you guessed protein, you guessed right.

Soy for Breakfast: in which I announced this program.

This program has involved a giveaway every week, so it’s only natural that it ends with one, too, right?

How about another gift card to Sports Authority? To enter, just leave a comment telling me what you learned during this program.

Contest is only open to U.S. residents, 18 years of age and older. One entry, per person, per contest.

    I really liked your Soy Simple posts. I learned that there are a ton of ways to consume soy and i tried a lot of them. I am not a vegeterian but i may turn into one very soon 🙂

    I learned Trader Joes sells bags of pre-boiled eggs. Your blog usually inspires me to be more active, but this tip just made me the laziest breakfast maker ever. 🙂

    I learned to get more protein in post workout — I want to start eating to fuel my body, not just to eat whatever I want because I “deserve” it after working hard.

    I definitely eat a lot of meat..so I have learned how important it is to incorporate non-meat sources of protein into my diet. Since I have a dairy allergy…soy is a great way to go. I’ve already tried your protein smoothies..delicious 🙂

    I’ve started to incorporate more protein into my diet after reading about how many convenient sources are out there. I also now pay special attention to getting the right fuel for my workouts.

    I was reminded to load up on simple protein during the holidays…usually I go for the fruit and veggies but then I’m still starving and have to rely on my emergency apple and trail mix in my car!

    I live in NYC and the tofu cream cheese always scared me a bit but reading about how much you love it made me try it…and it’s awesome! I can’t do a lot of dairy so it’s such a great alternative! Thanks!

    I learned protein packs a punch, makes you feel full, and fills you up with good nutrients, as opposed to the alternatives. I’ve tried to incorporate more soy into my snacks, like edamame, and i put it in my coffee

    I always love reading about foods other people try. I also need to eat more protein & your blog is a great way to keep me inspired to try new things. Even if some brands taste weird, try another & sometimes it’s surprisingly good!

    I liked your Soy Simple posts! I’ve been really trying to get more protein lately. I eat vegetarian MOST of the time, vegan SOME of the time, but I’ve been eating more lean meats once in a while to really get in that protein. I’m trying to finally lose that last 20 lbs that I’ve refused to get rid of since losing 70(!) and it’s pretty hard to do on a 100% vegetarian diet. Beans, while an amazing source of protein, are so high in calories compared to a chicken breast or a lean cut of beef. But I digress. Thanks for these posts, I’ve really learned some great non-meat ways to squeeze more protein into my diet.

    Also, that bagel looks amazing. But I’ll just enjoy this grapefruit.
