Chapter 1: Favor Feel-Good Foods

Many people take better care of their cars and pets than they do of themselves. They'll put the best and most expensive fuel and oil in their vehicles to ensure top performance and feed their animals brand-name or even home-cooked food to keep them healthy. So why do so many women complain of not feeling well, while feeding themselves substandard fuel? There is a connection, after all.

Your dietary intake, unlike genetics, is a health factor over which you have complete control and which determines, in large part, your energy level, overall appearance, emotional status, mental acuity, and general health, present and future.

A nutrient-rich diet satisfies your body, mind, and soul. Eat some feel-good foods today!

They even contain lysine, an amino acid not common to many plant foods.

Soybeans are rich in a group of compounds called phytochemicals, including plant estrogen and isoflavones. These very compounds have a wide range of positive effects on health, such as lowering the risk of heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer, as well as helping to prevent osteoporosis, fighting diabetes, and decreasing the symptoms of menopause.
