I was able to go down to Iowa State Campus last night and sit on a panel for The Soy Foods Council.  It was great (and I was able to test some tasty soy food :)).  We have done a tour with them last summer, and they continue to get me excited about soy foods!

Normally, the first thing that comes to mind when someone says "soy food" is tofu.  However, there are so many uses of soy in our food!  From Hellmann's Mayonnaise, to pork chops, to chocolate, soy is used to put it on our plates.  

I am excited to learn more about it, but tonight got me #SoyInspired!  Check it out for yourself at  

Do you have concerns about the food on your plate?  Are you concerned that the food you buy is safe?  I am not.  One of the reasons I am sure about this is from being on the farm.  Another reason is being connected to people like CommonGround.  I am a part of this great group that can help you to connect your food to your plate.  This group of resources is wonderful to me and should be to you, too.  Ask questions, don't fear your food.  Join the conversation in Iowa on Facebook:  

I will end with a quote from my son:  "I love you to the moon and all the way back down into a deep dark hole.  But don't worry, the deep dark hole is filled with superheroes."  :)
