QuestionAre you a vegan?!? I seriously love your info on plant based proteins. I've been a vegan for over 10 years and I HATE when people ask where I get my protein from. If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me that I would be rich! Hope you are meeting more knowledgeable people than I have in the past 10 years lol C: Answer

Sorry, life got a little crazy and I wasn’t able to answer this right away. I cannot claim to be vegan, but I am trying it for a month. I have a lot of dietary issues that I think the vegan diet can help me with. As far as meeting people who are supportive/knowledgeable, I guess I’m not too concerned what other people think. I also have a rather bold personality so people don’t bother me lol

My Guide to Cooking Amazing Tofu

As a single ingredient, tofu has a lot to offer and it’s worth learning how to cook it well. I’ve gathered together all of my tofu recipes, tutorials, tips, and tricks together into this all-inclusive tofu resource.  You’ll be enjoying amazing tofu dishes in no time!

Why do you need to learn how to cook tofu?

  • It’s high in protein (13g/serving)
  • A source of calcium and iron
  • Mild in flavour making it ideal for marinades
  • Versatile – it can be baked, sautéed, fried, grilled, you name it!
  • Quick and easy to prepare – it can be flavoured and prepared in as little as 10 minutes
  • Very cost effective, 1 block ($2.27) = 4 servings ($0.57/serving)

Tofu has some awesome health benefits too! Studies have shown that eating tofu can help to lower bad cholesterol, and 25g of soy protein per day may reduce the risk of heart disease (in combination with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.) Check the label and look for non-GMO tofu.
