Jillian Michaels Answers That Protein Question – Soy Free

Okay, vegsters: how many times have you been asked about your protein intake?

We might all have our own snappy answers at the ready when it comes to protein, calcium, or B12, but Super Tofu can’t swoop in and save those needing to avoid soy. Jillian Michaels answered a concerned reader on Every Day Health with one of our favorite responses: real foods.

What, you don’t need to depend on fortified, processed “replacement” foods for your nutritional needs? Michaels cheerfully recommends, among other things, lentils, quinoa, pumpkin and hemp seeds, and bok choy for protein, iron, and calcium. No matter what your diet of choice, adding these toothsome treats can enrich plate, palate, and health. And we’ll add to not forget that B12-laden nutritional yeast on your popcorn or as a cheezy sauce!

Michaels, a pescatarian, admits that while she considers “healthy” meats a good sometimes-choice for many, she herself won’t eat meat or poultry because she’s “such an animal lover.” We like the she’s not shy about sharing either her diet and fitness advice or her personal journey: since Ecorazzi reported that Michaels was leaving The Biggest Loser, it looks as though she’s been working at achieving everything she wanted to do with her newfound time, including joining with Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine in their crusade against subsidies for processed meats and cheeses, leading a  big top-sized protest against the unethical use of animals in circuses, and mothering two children with partner Heidi Rhoades.

    Stay away from any soy products that are UNFERMENTED. They reek havoc on the endocrine system. There are better substitues to soy.
