Overview

FDA Approves New Health Claim for Soy Protein and Coronary Heart Disease

Are you craving Mom's apple pie or a peanut butter cookie or even amaretto cheesecake, but you feel guilty eating these high fat desserts? Do you love Italian pizza, calzone, or focaccia but want to serve a more nutritious meal? Why not enrich these favorite foods by adding soy? This one ingredient can add vitamins A, B, C, D, and E plus minerals, calcium, and cancer fighting isoflavones to your food. Let Beyond Low-Fat Baking: Cancer Fighting Foods for the Millenium show you how to bake delicious healthy foods by adding soy to traditional recipes.

It has been reported that 25 million Americans are eating soyfoods now. Why all the fuss? One reason may be that on October 26, 1999, the FDA authorized the use of health claims about the role of soy protein in reducing the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). It was the FDA's conclusion that foods containing soy protein included in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of CHD by lowering blood cholesterol levels. Or, it may be that a recent clinical trial showed that consumption of soy protein compared to other proteins could lower total cholesterol levels including the LDL cholesterol level.

Simply put, soyfoods are some of the most nutritious foods on the earth, and when used in innovative recipes, adding soy does nothing to change the taste of many favorite foods. Ultimately, the inclusion of soy comes down to taste. The food has to taste good, and Shirleen's recipes preserve traditional taste. Shirleen's book includes scrumptious and easy-to-make recipes for everyday foods. Cornbread, biscuits, peanut butter cookies, cheesecake-all are included in this book.

In the past, lower fat cookbook mainly removed egg yolks from baked goods and used egg whites. Some recipes called for prune butter or a similar fat substitute. When you remove egg yolks from recipes, you not only remove the cholesterol, but you remove a valuable source of protein and other nutrients as well. The result is mainly a refined white flour product made with sugar and egg whites. Shirleen's recipes do use egg whites, but she replaces the loss of protein, vitamins, and minerals by adding soy flour or blended tofu. The result is higher nutrition. Fat and calories are still reduced.

A healthy diet reduces cholesterol, and most health authorities agree that it may fight life-threatening diseases such as cancer. Shirleen's fight with cancer because personal when her 28-year-old son was inflicted with a rare form of cancer. He is a healthy cancer survivor today and is eating a healthier diet. While diet along does not cure disease, research promises plenty of hope and suggests that if we eat soyfoods and whole-grains while reducing consumption of meats, we can dramatically reduce our chance of getting some diseases.

About the Author:

President and Founder of Living Healthy Foods, a family-run test kitchen, Shirleen is busy creating new and interesting ways to incorporate soyfoods and other healthy eating habits into her dishes. Since it's beginning in 1999, her weekly nutrition column is rapidly spreading to many papers, ranging from St. Louis to Dallas, Texas. Besides writing, Shirleen is busy doing soyfoods cooking demonstrations weekly in the Midwest. She has had shows in most major cities in this area and is a popular guest speaker. She, as well, appears on weekly radio and/or television stations in the Midwest. Shirleen is working on a second book.

Vicki Cox
Peanut butter cookies, apple pie, decadent chocolate cake, poppy lemon muffins, onion bread sticks, and cinnamon rolls pop out of this first-of-its kind cookbook. They taste good, chew easily, and lack fat-laden and high cholesterol ingredients.

    Good, but could be better

    This cookbook was excellent at cutting out a lot of the fat and replacing those high fat items with tofu or other soy-based products. Unfortunately, I found a LOT of sugar to be in the recipes. I realize this book is entitled 'Beyond Low Fat Baking...' thus indicating that it had cut back on the fat, and '...Cancer Fighting Foods For The Millennium' indicates the soy, but all that sugar is not healthy either. So many people have Type II Diabetes, and everyone in the US seems to be overweight, I wish she addressed this issue as well. The recipes I tried were very flavorful and tasty. In fact, there was a delicious recipe for a Spice Cake in there that my family loved. If sugar is not an issue for you, then pick this book up. But if you need to cut back on the sugar, and you do not know how to do that on your own, then do not get this book.

    Fantastic recipes!

    The best soyfoods book I've ever owned. The cheesecake is delicious. The cookies are the best ever. If you want to add a bit of nutrition to everyday baked goods, you need this book.
