I am very open to adding new, healthy, food and drink choices to our family menu. Our lives are so busy – every healthy food option helps fuel our schedule. Recently, I picked up So Good Soy Beverage at the grocery store and I realized – it is So Good For Heart Health…
So Good For Heart Health
I was inspired by the Soy Chocolate Cinnamon Smoothie Recipe (which looks so good!) on the So Good website. I’ve started making smoothies in the mornings for my kids as a quick grab n’ go breakfast. Plus, my oldest now has braces and youngest doesn’t really love breakfast – so a smoothie is a great way for them to drink their vitamins and minerals as a healthy start to the day.
Imagine my surprise when my 2nd daughter simply grabbed the So Good chocolate box out of the fridge and poured it for her and her brother for breakfast (trying something new – on their own?! – this is unheard of!). I didn’t need to coach, prompt or cajole them into trying this dairy-free beverage. Morning win!
Drinking So Good myself (as I type this post) – I can tell you – the taste is great. It tastes like regular ol’ chocolate milk to me. Yummy! I always thought a soy drink would taste…well…soy-ish. Not the case. I don’t notice a difference (and seeing as my kids drank it down without a remark…they didn’t notice the taste difference either).
And aside: Can you imagine a cafe mocha or mochaccino; using So Good chocolate? Diary free readers – bookmark that idea!
So Good soy beverage is fortified with 15 essential nutrients including calcium to build strong bones and teeth, and vitamins D2 and B12 – providing a refreshing and nutritious option for Canadian consumers.
Studies show health benefits of soy
One of the best reasons to enjoy soy is because it is good for your heart health. A recent study published in the Journal Metabolism found that adding even modest amounts of soy foods to a healthy diet reduces the risk of heart disease.
I really like having healthy food and drink options which contribute to heart health (and overall health) for my family. And the fact that my kids liked the chocolate flavour of So Good…all the better.
