soy milk: from on 2002-07-26

Hi all!
Just wondering if it is allowed to mix soy milk with any sort of food, as is the case with most vegetables. I have read in a Habgood's book that soya was not concentrated protein food and that it is ok to mix soy milk with wheat and banana for breakfast so I've been doing so accordingly, up until now that is. Thanks!

Tofu is the protein extracted from the soya bean and is a very concentrated form of protein.

If this is mixed with water to form soya milk, then it depends very much on how concentrated the milk is, and how much you use at a meal.
If you are using a lot at a meal then count it as a protein, but if it is only a tiny proportion of a meal then you can count it as a vegetable. Remember that all vegetables include a small amount of protein.

The food combining is an aid to a healthy diet, but we are all different, and react in different ways to our food.

If your diet is keeping you healthy and fit, then you are doing it right. Don't worry if others do it differently.

If you eat a lot of soy butter / cheese with a lot of bread then that is not healthy! But a little soy milk on cereal is not a problem.
