It’s April, which means it’s National Soyfoods Month. Soy foods are wonderful meal and snack additions for so many reasons. For one, they’re complete plant proteins–meaning they contain all nine essential amino acids that your body can’t produce on its own. Also, regularly eating soy protein may be beneficial for cholesterol levels because it is a heart-healthy food, per research in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
