Soy nuts can be mixed with other nuts, like pistachios or peanuts, to eat accompanied by a nice fruit drink, cocktail, or a beer. Offer it to your friends when they come over to play cards or before a nice a meal.
Soy milk can replace cow's milk to pour over your cereal in the morning or to complete any recipe that requires milk, like pancakes. Soy milk is delicious to drink alone or to pour over a bowl of strawberries.
Tofu comes in soft or firm textures. The softest form blends nicely into a homemade fruit smoothie, instantly improving the nutritional value of the smoothie by adding protein and calcium. Tofu can be added to all stir fry recipes, either in addition to meat or replacing the meat.
At restaurants, choosing the vegetarian burger is an easy way to get soy, as they are made from some form of soybeans, often tofu.

It's worth the effort and your body will thank you if you use these easy ways to incorporate soy into your diet.
