(HealthDayNews) -- Soy is rich in protein and when eaten instead of meat, it should cut the amount of calories, saturated fat and cholesterol you consume.

The Mayo Clinic suggests some ways to include soy in your diet:

  • Use tofu, a soy product, in stir-fry dishes or scramble it like an egg.
  • Try a soy burger -- it looks and tastes much like ground beef.
  • Snack on roasted soy nuts.
  • Use soy milk in your coffee or cereal.
  • Substitute soy flour for up to 20 percent of the total flour in baked goods.
