Protein is very important for our body. It is a key supplement for weight loss, gain and for a lean body. Including the right amount of protein in your diet can make huge difference in your life. But it is very difficult to have good proteins so people go for packed protein supplements. But being an athlete we were always recommended to have natural diet like food content from nature and not processed. We would highly depend on chicken,tofu, soybean and many more. Eating protein makes your hunger satisfied and keeps the stomach light. I love the soybean for vegan diet as it has load of dish that can be prepared. And the taste is also great , even if cooked properly it can taste like a chicken. In some renowned restaurant dish’s, it is difficult for a normal person make difference between chicken and soybean.
Soyabean can be used at its different form like soya seeds and beans. There are many dish which can be prepared from this. Today we are making cookies okara. You must be wondering what is okara. When we are making soya milk at home the solid remains of the soya seeds are calleed okara.
