MOFO - Day 8 - Soy Yogurt and Giveaway Winner!!!

Today is supposed to be the last day of Soy You Think You Can Dance Week. However I still have another soy product I really want to share with you after today, so I am going to extend out one more day (sorry seitan, you get one less day). Today I bring you another soy product that comes in very handy for many things: Soy Yogurt. Pictured below is the Not Just for Breakfast Banana Split from the Vegan Table. It features soy yogurt standing in for ice cream to make a healthy breakfast version of a classic.


There are many brands of soy yogurt on the market. I started using Wildwood brand some time ago because their plain yogurt has less sugar than most others I've found. This was a big deal for me when using it for savory dishes. So I have just stuck with them. I used the vanilla flavor today. But they have many other varieties. You can find nutritional info on all of their varieties HERE. The vanilla has 5 g of protein and 20% of the RDA of calcium per 6 oz serving with only 3 g of fat and of course no cholesterol. Not bad stuff! I use it in baked goods and even savory dishes; anywhere you might use regular yogurt. Soy yogurt is super easy to find in most grocery stores too.


And now...the moment we've all been waiting for: The winner of the The Best Veggie Burgers on the Planet Giveaway is: #6 - Beth!! Congrats to you! Please send me your mailing address so I can get that book headed your way! 

Make sure to check back tomorrow for the last day of Soy You Think You can Dance week. I'll be talking about one of my favorite and convenient soy products: Butler Soy Curls. As an added bonus, I'm going to be giving a package of them away!

I love the plain Wildwood yogurt!

I wish we could get Wildwood up here, the only brand I've tried is Nancy's, which I'm not a big fan of.

That's a bummer Maggie. Most of the other brands seem so sweet to me.
