  1. I do live soy as it gives a break from eating chicken but doesn’t cut out the proteins. It’s good to know that it has health benefits too.

  2. I try to substitute Tofu with Paneer is a few dishes. It takes a while to develop the taste for it but when it’s good from health point of view then who will say no.
