I love tofu

That’s why I eat it all the time. In case you were wondering. I’ve read all the anti-soy propaganda (and unlike most, I’ve read the pro-soy propaganda too) and I still eat it. So there. So far I haven’t grown a third boob (or a first and second, really), or developed endocrine disorders, or become obese or weak or cancer ridden. Quite the opposite in fact. Tofu fills me up, makes me feel energetic and strong, and most importantly, I really, really like it. I never get tired of it. I can only take so many salmon steaks, and a beef steak is nauseating.

Now, for those who are ‘concerned’ (ie, judging), I generally avoid processed soy ( TVP, soy protein powder, etc), and I only eat organic soy beans grown in the US, and for the most part I buy sprouted tofu (which addresses most of the anti-nutrient issues) unless it’s not available (but usually it is. I live in the Bay Area. We’re very enlightened here.). The ingredients on the label: soybeans, water, nigari. The process: grind up the beans, mix with water and nigari, allow to coagulate, press. I can do that in my kitchen. I HAVE done that in my kitchen. Tofu is real food. I shall eat it.

One thought on “I love tofu

  1. I’m going through your whole blog since I just found it the day before yesterday, I’m not personally ready to start anything yet for lack of money and because I’m about to go to China in like a week so yeah…
    But, I just wanted to say that you’ve made me want to give tofu another chance. Back when I first started buying whole foods and healthy stuff and cutting out all the baddies, I got tofu, because it’s supposed to be like the superfood right? But the taste and everything kind of…swayed me from keeping it up. Since I’ve found your blog I decided to give it another chance and yesterday I actually told my hubby that we need to go to the store just to get more tofu! It’s kind of a big thing for me haha.
    Thanks for all that you do, inspiring others to get healthy!
