We got a nice (but short) visit from my brother-in-law last night as he is in Calgary for a work related seminar. He has also never seen our new place, so this was his first visit! Unfortunately I didn't get to spend a tonne of time with him since I didn't get home till 7:15pm (I taught a class!) But it was alright; Because I wasn't home to cook we ordered in from BP's. :) (Yeah, I know! I'm not really following my cleanse diet anymore... oops!)

Speaking of the cleanse, has anyone ever tried Silk? (Soy Beverage, like milk?) OMG, it's very good! (Eventhough I've heard differing opinions about the health benefits of ingesting unformented soy products...) In small doses, it can't hurt?!? Seriously... try it for breakfast with puffed wheat/millet/rice and fresh strawberries... DEVINE!

My acupuncturist said that Asians can handle soy a lot better. I don't know if it's true. But anyway, I love the chocolate Silk stuff. When you heat it up, it tastes like creamy hot chocolate!
Otherwise, I am more into Silk light for just drinking, or So Nice. I definitely prefer So Nice over Silk.

Really, interesting. I haven't had any issues with digesting soy... I just don't want to start drinking it if I shouldn't be, you know!?! I guess I've been drinking cow's milk for this long and I'm still fine! well, sorta... LOL :)

I say the So Nice stuff there, but didn't know what to get... and yeah, I got the Silk light... less fat, Woot!

This thing about soy is that north americans have the mentality of "if a little is good, a LOT is better!!" which isn't always true. Even Asians don't eat exclusively soy products (and a lot of it is fermented as you mentioned) but a little definitely cuts out harmful fats from our diets.
I drank a fair amount of chococlate silk while I was prego because I hate milk, and I needed the calcium.
