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.

Canola is just as bad as soy, but in unique horribly ways. You should be avoiding all vegetable and seed oils. On a "30 day challenge" I would try to avoid it -- I mean, it's only 30 days, and it's not a big deal to be very strict, right? After... (more)

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)
