Dairy Aisle: As you can see from the picture at the top of this post, I'm a big fan of soy milk! There are several brands besides Silk and they come in regular or flavored versions such as Vanilla and Chocolate. They are great for individuals who are lactose intolerant or vegan, and are fortified with tons of Calcium and Vitamin D for strong bones! The heart healthy fat content also adds a unique benefit that isn't found in regular milk. You will also find plenty of other soy products such as soybean oil buttery spreads, soy yogurt, soy cheese, soy smoothies drinks like Odwalla, and much more!
Cereal Aisle: I eat a lot of cereal with soy protein in it. There are tons of cereals with added soy in them, you can usually spot them by their higher protein content (which in my view means more than 4 grams of protein per serving) . My favorites are definitely the Kashi cereals that have 5-10 grams of protein per servings, much of it coming from amino acid rich soy. My favorite these days is Kashi Go Lean Crisp with a whopping 9 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber, and great taste! If you can't find your favorite soy cereal in the regular cereal aisle, sometimes you will find them in the specialty / health / organic aisle instead.
Snack Aisle: I've been getting into soy butter and soy nuts a lot recently as a high protein alternative to peanuts, almonds, peanut butter, etc. To find soy butter, check next to the peanut butter and nut butter shelves and you will find protein-rich soy butter. To find soy nuts, look next to the almonds, peanuts, cashews etc. If you don't find them there, check the health or organic aisles. Also, edamame is becoming a more and more popular healthy all natural snack! There are also plenty of soy snacks like Soy Crisps that are tasty munchies indeed!
Health Food Aisle: You can find soy in a wide variety of great health, snack, energy, and protein bars in your supermarket. There are plenty of health bars like Soy Joy, energy / performance bars like PowerBar (my favorites are the Triple Threat Chocolate and Peanut Butter Crisp), and soy protein bars like Special K Protein Meal Bars . And of course you know I love my protein powder. In the vitamins an supplements section you can find a wide variety of soy protein powders such as GeniSoy brand, flavored or unflavored, that you can use for your protein shakes or to add to baked goods, oatmeal, cereal, etc for an easy, convenient, and affordable way to boost your daily protein intake. Sometimes I'll even add some of the chocolate protein powder to some natural peanut butter, dump in some oats, and eat it all with a spoon for a very delicious nutritionally dense snack!
