I'm one of those people who use soy in moderation, around 1 pound per week of tofu, miso once or so per week, and maybe two cups of soymilk per week. I use soy analogs only very occasionally, like maybe once a month if that.

That said, if you are actually soy intolerant, and some people are, you can have a healthy varied diet without it. There is even a way to make "tofu" from garbanzo beans, I have the recipe on my Word program, it's from a Veggie Life article and although I have not tried it I found it interesting and have given it to several people who wanted tofu without the soy.

There are also other beverages other than soy, there is rice, almond (I LOVE almond breeze brand, it's sooo good) and hemp which is really rich and thick and good for certain things.

You still base your diet around vegetables and fruits, legumes and whole grains, but it's good to know there are so many alternatives now to everything it's easy to have a soy-free diet, or a wheat-free diet, or any kind of diet, without a lot of stress.
