Low Carb Black Bean Soy Milk

Low Carb Black Bean Soy MilkDo smells really spark a flurry of emotional memories?  Is there a pleasant aroma that makes you feel like you’re being transported back to your childhood home?  

The smell of fresh-baked bread, mom’s homemade chicken noodle soup, or a pot of freshly brewed coffee?  One that really conjures up vivid memories for me is the smell of freshly boiled soy milk.   

Low Carb Black Bean Soy MilkI never really liked dairy milk when I was young.  My breakfast, which typically included boiled cow’s milk plus sugar, would make me just want to cry.  As milk was considered a nutritious and precious food at that time, my mom felt she was doing her best to provide a protein rich breakfast for me.  After growing up and learning more about food allergies and intolerance, I blamed it on lactose.  

As an alternative, I much prefered soy milk to dairy milk.  Waking up in the morning to a room filled with the aroma of freshly boiled soy milk, is a smell I grew to associate with a hearty breakfast.  Later when a job took me to Beijing, where I lived alone, you could usually find me in a soy milk shop (the equivalent of a coffee shop) having breakfast before work.
