    Try it. But like they were talking about health stuff, soy produces a chemical similar to estrogen, your body treats it like that. So moderation, and watch to see if it effects you. I’ve seen articles about menopausal women eating it to help treat the symptoms. Same for soy milk. I’d say find a recipe you think looks good, with good directions. Try it, if you don’t like it, try a different one. Dairy is a good protein, so are beans, and if you eat them, eggs. The gross thing about eggs, it’s a natural biproduct of the chickens reproductive cycle; like a period, but not gross or messy! If you object to how store bought eggs may be raised, buy from a local who lets theirs free range. Home grown is so much better. Darker yolks, better flavor. And try duck eggs if you can. They have less water in them, so they need to be cooked on a lower temp, with a little water added once the bottom firms up. Amazing to bake with though! Lovely rich cakes!

    I can’t help comparing it to a period. Sorry, I’m a medic, nothing is sacred!

    Reminds me of an incident in my grandfather's favourite bar. Seems a gentleman walked in one day and asked the bartender if there was anything to eat. The bartender told him they had beef tongue sandwiches. The man replied: "How can you eat something that comes out of some animal's MOUTH? Can you fry me up an egg instead?"

    But it's not - it's the ovum. A period is the result when there's no fertilized egg. A bird egg - of any kind - can be either fertilized or not. They lay both kinds!
