I love this meat substitution. I stopped purchasing most faux meats about two years ago. I now make my own version of quality protein using organic tofu and spices that give it a delicious taste. This simple meat substitution has a lot of good nutrition. Keep reading below.
Tofu: Tofu comes from soy and must be organic in order for you to get the highest quality of protein. Conventional soy beans are highly sprayed with toxic pesticides and are not good to eat. Tofu is a great source of protein because it contains all 9 essential amino acids. It also contains iron, calcium, manganese, selenium, phosphorous, magnesium, copper, zinc and vitamin B1.
Turmeric: Turmeric is a great spice that adds more than just color. It contains natural anti-inflammatory compound, increases the antioxidant capacity of the body, boosts brain-derived neurotrophic facto, lower your Risk of heart Disease, and may help delay aging and fight age-related chronic diseases.
