Encourage kids to eat more vegetables with this amazing product

I found this amazing product called Coconut Aminos Teriyaki which helps to encourage kids to eat more vegetables.  My boys will eat almost any stir fried vegetable with this on top.  I use coconut oil to stir fry the vegetables.  Then, add sea salt and sprinkle with Coconut Aminos Teriyaki sauce.  Watch in awe as you see your kids devour bitter vegetables like brussel sprouts and bok choy.  This is a great alternative to soy sauce and is filled with healthy ingredients.  The ingredients are coconut sap, sea salt, organic ginger, organic onion, organic garlic, and cayenne pepper.

Coconut Aminos Teriyaki is a great alternative to soy sauce for people who are sensitive to soy products.  I am unable to eat any soy products without harming my hormone balance.

This topic of consuming soy reminds me of an interesting article I recently read by Dr. Mercola.    He recommends eating fermented soy products such as natto,  tempeh, soy sauce and miso, but strongly discourages eating non fermented and processed soy products such as soy milk, soy burgers, soy ice cream and soy cheese.   My favorite non soy based miso is from South River Miso Company and is called Chickapea Miso.  Here is the link to read more about this miso. http://www.southrivermiso.com/store/c/1-1-Year-Miso.html

Below are Dr. Mercola’s  thoughts on soy:
