Homemade recipes to avoid soy by-products

I found some amazing homemade recipes for a few store-bought items that contain soy and soy by-products.

Here is one for homemade pasta sauce in a crock pot:

Another one for homemade cream of chicken soup, because the store bought version has a TON of bad stuff in it:

Soy is in everything….(and that’s NOT a good thing)

     I’ve been avoiding (at least I thought I was) soy since I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2001. However, soy is in ALL processed foods, usually as soy lecithin. Soy is known to cause trouble for the thyroid, and 95% of soy grown in the US is genetically modified, meaning it has Round Up poison and the Bt toxin added to its DNA. So when you consume soy, you are consuming weed killer and toxins that are now part of these plants. No wonder we are all fat and sick. Go check your labels, you will be very surprised.
     Soybean lecithin comes from sludge left after crude soy oil goes through a “degumming” process. It is a waste product containing solvents and pesticides and has a consistency ranging from a gummy fluid to a plastic solid. (http://preventdisease.com/news/09/073009_soy_lecithin.shtml)

Convenience is killing us….

Wow, I didn’t realize how many products contain sugar. Mayonnaise, peanut butter, and pasta sauce have hidden sugar. I know I can make my own peanut butter and pasta sauce, but I’m not thrilled about making my own mayonnaise. My daughters are not happy with my new healthy eating kick, and one of them even blamed my Master’s degree program for ruining her life! But what teenager wants to follow their parent’s advice? None that I know of 🙂

I’m trying to slowly incorporate my new recipes to lessen the shock to my daughter’s systems, but it’s not easy. They keep finding cool desserts to make on Pinterest! It’s hard to compete with the internet 🙂

I love convenience, but convenience is killing us…

My owl :)

This is the owl I made with my Silhouette Cameo. My daughter’s school mascot is an owl and their colors are blue and white. I think it came out really cute 🙂

Our society is a mess

Our country gives us freedom of speech, which has been in the headlines the past few weeks. We also have freedom of choice, without judging others. I hope that everyone that has shown support for Chick-fil-A lately shows the same support when one of their family members (even their own child) tells them they are gay. They need your love more than the restaurant.
