Fish sauce is my answer to all things soy sauce. It makes a strong statement on your food and you only need a small dose instead of a drenching. Fermenting certainly changes things but that science is above my knowledge.

Have to second the above recommendation to use Coconut Aminos. The brand I usually see is something-Secret. It's good stuff. Makes for a mean jerky marinade.

I'm under the impression that phytoestrogens and phytate are the main reasons non-soy-sensitive people avoid soy in the first place, and phytate is more of a "less-is-better" thing than something you need to avoid 100% in order to benefit. So if... (more)

IMO, merino wool is a more sustainable option. Wool clothing lasts a LOT longer than cotton, bamboo or soy and comes in many weights--I wear it year-round. Check out Icebreaker, Ibex and of course Smartwool. Patagonia has some, too.
