Soy Milk

How often do you drink soy milk?

I used to drink it only once in a while when I felt like drinking. But half a year ago, I won soy milk for a half year and received a box full of soy milk cartons every month, so I started to drink it almost everyday! I first didn't think of drinking and gave all cartons to my mom before they expire, but I knew soy milk is good for our health, so I started to make a soy milk smoothie every morning!!!

Soy milk is a beverage made from soybeans. It contains about the same amount of protein as cow's milk, far less saturated fat than cow's milk, and isoflavones which is good for rejuvenation (I think jose likes this!). In addition to these benefits, I knew it also lowers blood cholesterol levels. Like I wrote before, my blood cholesterol levels were rising year by year and I was kind of worried... but since I started to drink soy milk, they reduced!!! At the same time I went to the GYM, so maybe that was effective, too! Anyway, all attractive nutrients are contained in soy milk, so I'm loving it now. He-he!

My smoothie recipe is really easy. You mix 1 frozen banana + 1 small cup (100g) of flavored yogurt + 200ml of soy milk in a blender! It serves two, so I gave half to my darling ;) I sometimes add a spoonful of collagen powder to mine :D

Changing my story, I have laser hair removal appointment tonight and a hair cut appointment tomorrow... Then I need to create more than 10 new recipes this weekend! Whew... I don't know why I made such a hard schedule like this... Damn!!!

I hope I am okay...

Have a relaxing weekend ;)

  1. Ochi,

    Soy milk is really great beverages.I love this a lot! I started to drink soy bean milk every morning now.

    I had never done hair removal treatment before..Can you explain more for me?I wish to know more..

  2. Hi jose,

    Wow! You already knew it ;)

    I searched on the Internet and was in between medical laser (such as Laser Diode) and beauty salon's IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) but finally I decided to have IPL.
    My friend goes to the salon and she said it was good, so that proved decisive :) For me, friend is more trustworthy than the Internet. I purchased 2-year package. Now after a year and a half, almost all of my unwanted hairs are removed! Maybe you can try underarms first. Speaking of IPL, darker your hairs, more you get the result! You can look for a salon where does the IPL. I believe there are many in Singapore!!! BTW, I don't know what Ken would say about that... my darling first didn't agree with me removing hairs... He should understand how we girls are distressed by hair shaving!

  3. We have been giving it to our two children and I actually like the taste as well. I grew up on cows milk but soy milk tastes pretty good and is probably better for me. It is more expensive though.

  4. Hi Ochi,

    I don't drink much milk, but once in while use on my oatmeal! I just use a small amount, and I prefer whole milk. Long time ago I purchased milk fresh, from the farms. It was the best milk I ever had, so creamy and delicious! Your smoothy sounds so good! I still use a razor for shaving!

  5. Hi Tornadoes28,

    Good for you and your family :D
    I thought I should have started to drink it sooner!!!

  6. Hi Jo,

    Me, too. I don't drink much milk. My mom told me that I used to drink a lot when I was a kid, but now I don't. Maybe I drank too much and got tired of it...

    A razor dried my skin and felt itchy, so I stopped. Also, I didn't like black pores on arms and legs. My hair was really dark X
