Soy-ful Smoothies Refresh Your Diet (NAPSA) - Once embraced only by vegetarians, many people are now making soy a part of their diets as more of its health benefits are discovered. Bob Greene, author of the best-selling book "The Best Life Diet," suggests soymilk as a surprisingly enjoyable way to fit high-quality protein into daily meals.
Soymilk contains little or no fat, no cholesterol and provides soy protein, which, as part of a heart-healthy diet, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Plus, it can be used as a milk substitute in many recipes.
For a cool, refreshing and sweetly satisfying snack, use soymilk in this Best Life-approved smoothie recipe. One glass has only 3 grams of fat and 200 calories. For more Best Life Diet-approved meal ideas and tips, visit www.eatbetteramer ica.com/bestlife.
