Soya Chunks

  • Soya chunks pack numerous benefits and enable faster muscle building and metabolism.

  • They are great for the health of bone, hair and skin health.

  • According to a 2015 study published in the journal Molecules, it was found that soy chunks can efficiently lower the levels of bad cholesterol in the body and protect the heart from ailments. The study also discovered that soya chunks stop excess fat from accumulating around the organs, thus promoting weight-loss. The chunks are loaded with fibre, thus allowing the food to pass slowly from the system and keeping you full for longer.

Nutritional Yeast

  • Nutritional yeast is a highly nutritious vegan food product with various potential health benefits. It can be used to add extra protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to meals. Studies suggest that nutritional yeast may help protect against oxidative damage, lower cholesterol and boost immunity.

  • Vitamin B-12 may help boost energy, as a deficiency of this vitamin can lead to weakness and fatigue.

Peas

  • This green legume is loaded with A, B-1, B-6, C, and a supersized serving of osteoporosis-fighting K. One cup of boiled green peas has 46% of your RDA of vitamin K-1, known for maintaining bone health and helping blood to clot to prevent bleeding.

  • Peas are a  good source of iron. Iron deficiency is the leading cause of anaemia. If you don't have enough iron, your body can't make enough healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells thereby causing haemoglobin deficiency.  Iron helps combat fatigue and gives you strength.

  • Peas are high in fibre and low in fat and contain no cholesterol. Plus, they're a good source of vegetable protein.
