Soy

A member of the legume family, the soybean is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and the B vitamins and is also cholesterol free and low in saturated fat. The protein in soybeans is complete, containing all the essential amino acids found in animal sources (4 ounces of tofu [soybean curd] contain the same amount and quality of protein as a similar-size hamburger). For individuals who want to include more plant-based protein in their diet and particularly for those on a vegetarian diet, soy products provide a way to add nonmeat protein to the diet.
