Add to that, the fact that tofu has more fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and folate than chicken and contains fewer calories ounce for ounce. Plus, this meat alternative is yet another plant-based food, along with berries and kale, that provides antioxidants to combat free radicals and prevent premature aging.
The Different Types of Tofu Provide A Variety Of Ways To Incorporate Into A Plant-Based Diet
With different varieties of tofu available, the firmer tofu’s are good for stir-frying or adding to soups and sauces, while the softer ones are good for mashing, chopping and adding to salads. Try tofu slices lightly sautéed and drizzled with a bit of olive oil. Also, consider adding it to smoothies in lieu of the more processed protein powders.
One more thing. You can improve the taste of this tasteless meat alternative by marinating it. Just be sure that marinades aren’t too high in oil and use coconut aminos instead of the traditional highly processed soy sauces which can contain wheat and sometimes, too much sodium.
Coconut aminos is a salty, savory seasoning sauce made from the fermented sap of coconut palm and sea salt and is similar in color and consistency to light soy sauce. Click here to learn more.
