Healthiest Foods in the World: Soy

Soy: Japan

Soy has long been touted as having great benefits to your overall health. It is packed with protein and linked to the prevention of cancer and osteoporosis. Studies have also shown it could be beneficial to cardiovascular health and it may have cholesterol-lowering abilities. Soybean oil also contains loads of omega-6 fatty acids.

There are a lot of easy ways to incorporate soy into your diet. Soy chocolate milk or veggie burgers are a simple alternative, or ordering your Grande Vanilla Latte with soy milk is a simple and tasty way to get it into your diet without even noticing!
