Tofu is also a phenomenal source of protein that is made from curdled soy milk that the water has been removed from. Soy provides a healthy dose of calcium and manganese and many studies have found that the phytoestrogens in soy may help to reduce some cancers such as breast cancer or endometrial cancers and reduce the risk of heart disease.

      I personally like the firm tofu (not silken) for this recipe- but it all depends on your preference

    Hi Ladies,

    You guys will probably hear from me a lot, I am still on track with my commitment to stick with my goals and trying you guys recipes and others from the suggested links are THE BOMB !!

    We went out to one of our favorite restaurants and I usually don’t eat the Tofu when I bring it home due to the texture, to me. This morning I used the Tofu and make this recipe, I loved it.

    Looking forward to trying out the meals on your 14-day plan!!

    I forgot to ask is there a way to edit recipes on your page? I can make changes to the recipe after it is saved to Yumprint.

    Thanks,
