Soy protein isn’t a good substitute for whey protein!
About 20 percent of babies in the United States are now fed soy formula, but the estrogens in soy can cause long term harm your baby’s sexual development and reproductive health that is irreversible. Babies consuming soy formula ingest about 5 birth control pills worth of estrogen every day.
1. THYROID ISSUES: Phytoestrogens are estrogen like. Mega consumption of these isoflavone are found in soy burgers, milk, soybutter and are very harmful for thyroid function.
2. CANCER: The estrogenic and toxic effect is linked to breast, uterus, and thyroid cancer.
3. INFERTILITY: Soy is linked to growth disorders, thyroid problems, infertility, and tumors.
4. TIRED TOXIC LIVER: Soy has toxic chemicals that clog up the liver and can’t be metabolized, unless fermented.
5. MINERAL DEFICIENCIES: Soy has anti-nutrient properties that block absorption of minerals from intestines (which in turn slows the thyroid).
6. DIGESTION: Contains enzymes inhibitors that reduce protein digestion.
7. Processed soy protein contains carcinogens such as nitrates.
The total caloric intake from soy in the Chinese diet is only 1.5%. Modern soy doesn’t resemble traditional Asian soy in any way. And to make matters worse, soy has become one of the biggest genetically modified crops in the world, with most (over 90%) of it being GMO. So, now we have all this soy milk, most of which is not organic, going into our babies, and our general population, who all believe it is healthy; all because of marketing.
1/2 cup vanilla whey or egg white protein
2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
1/8 tsp Celtic sea salt
4 TBS unsweetened almond milk
1/8 cup Swerve (or Erythritol and a few drops of stevia glycerite)
Coconut oil or Ghee (for frying)
4 TBS cream cheese or coconut cream
2 TBS Swerve (or erythritol and 1/4 tsp stevia glycerite)
2 TBS unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp nutmeg
Mix topping ingredients and set aside. Whisk dry ingredients together. Whisk egg with other wet ingredients, add to dry ingredients, and whisk to combine well. Fill a donut skillet, cast-iron pan, or dutch oven with oil and heat (click HERE to find the cast iron donut pan I used). When oil reaches around 350 to 360 F, drop batter into the oil. The batter will spread and puff up. When the underside browns, flip. In another 30 to 45 seconds, it will be ready to remove. Be sure enjoy them ASAP, as they will lose their crisp if they sit too long. Sprinkle with Swerve and nutmeg.
DIP: Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl until very smooth. Serve with donuts. Makes 4 servings.
