Exercise, Soybeans and Tofu Snacks

The branched-chain amino acids in soybeans stop muscle degradation during long bike rides and runs while the antioxidants help alleviate post-exercsie aches and pains. Research published in The Nutrition Journal found that both soy and whey proteins build lean muscle mass, but soy protein also prevents exercise-induced inflammation. Chocolate soy milk makes an excellent recovery drink.  Also, keep soy nuts in the car or at the office for a great protein-rich snack.
