Second Segment: Audience Questions

Question 1: Is it safe to eat soybeans and other soy foods?

Soy has swung the gamut from being very popular to being the “bad guy”. So, no wonder it can be confusing trying to decipher what is good for us and what is harmful.   The ladies have some great suggestions when choosing the soy for your plate.  

“Rules” to keep in mind:

  1. Careful Selection – choose organic
  2. Proper processing – fermentation is key!
  3. Be mindful of your hormones

Question 2: If you drink 100% juice, is it as good for you as a whole fruit or vegetable?

Without the buffering effect that the fiber that the whole fruit offers, fruit juice sure can spike your blood sugar when gulped down. Now, if we’re looking at vegetable juices—this can be a very healing & helpful thing.
