Oh lawwwwd, it’s Monday again??
Great, so now I have to wait for another million years before Friday comes again. How come Friday is always so far away like a relative that you meet once every year and Mondays are just like your mother in law who keeps popping over at your house without an invitation? Not talking from experience though. *Peace sign*
Anyways my weekends consisted of me
- Baking cheesecake and brownie with the niece
- Clearing the storeroom
- Cooking and making desserts for the family
I need a life. Doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. However that cheesecake was darn good. Nothing else mattered.♥
This soy milk + watermelon smoothie is too good. I can drink this 365 days x 99 years. I am just assuming that I am gonna live to a ripe age of 99. To be frank, i typed 105 earlier, then I thought let’s not push it. Not many can live beyond 3 digits. So yah, I am fine with 99 or even 98.
Perhaps if I incorporate more soy based food in my daily diet, I might just live up to that or beyond.
Soy is rich in vitamins, minerals and it is one of the richest plant source of protein. It contains 43 percent protein as compared to other legumes which contain 20 to 25 percent protein, thus it is perfect for vegetarians.Two examples of popular products from Soya would be,
Tempeh – It is an Indonesian specialty typically made by cooking and dehulling soya beans. Tempeh is delicious in a salad especially with a peanut dressing. Tempeh is also a very good source of protein, B vitamins and minerals.
Tofu – also known as bean curd is made from soya milk by coagulating the soya proteins with calcium or magnesium salts. It is an excellent source of iron and calcium and a very good source of protein.
Soy milk is also delicious! Soy milk is made by soaking the soy beans. The beans are then grinded, strained and boiled. It is very nutritious and delicious! I personally love Soy milk, be it hot or cold. I love to add fruits in my soy milk too. It sweetens the soy milk naturally plus it adds more fiber to the drink. Soy milk can be used to replace milk in smoothies.
This Watermelon and Soy Milk Smoothie is one of my favorite smoothie. It is nutritious, light and DELICIOUS. It is also ultra simple and you just need to add chunks of watermelon to some soy milk and blend away. Easy peasy on a Skinny Monday. 🙂
- 1 cup watermelon (Freeze this if you like the smoothie cold and thick)
- 2 cups unsweetened OR sweetened soy bean milk
- 1 tbsp sugar (optional)
- Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
