Hi here is a little bit of information from the Eat Fat Look Thin book by Bruce Fife you may or may not believe...Soybeans and soybean products, like tofu and soy milk, contain substances that slow down metabolism so they are not desirable for those who are interested in weight loss. The antithyroid chemicals in soy are neutralized during fermentation,. So fermented soy products are okay. These include temph, soy sauce, and miso. All other soy products should be avoided. Umm go figure. Just thought I'd share.
I like to add mine into stir fry. first take the tofu and squeeze all the water out of it. then cut it in half long ways then cut down the sides until you have thin strips of tofu. spray a wok with EC cooking spray and add tofu to cook. I also splash in some Braggs liquid aminos too to give it that soy flavor. The key is to leave the tofu alone in the pan or it will crumble. When it starts to brown flip it over. After tofu is browned on both sides set it aside and then cook all your favorite stir fry veggies. add the tofu back in to warm. pour veggie/tofu mix over brown rice or whole wheat thin spaghetti noodles.
Something simple: Whole Wheat Pita, add the Tofu, Fresh Basil, Tomatoes, Raw Sunflower Seeds. My Fav! Basically make a salad in a Pita add the tofu. Make a sandwich with cucumber or other vegis, stir fry it with some vegis. Although Firm works better. Oh... throw it in a smoothie.
Plant seeds of expectation in your mind; cultivate thoughts that anticipate achievement. Believe in yourself as being capable of overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses.”
