  • Sweet Side of Tofu – Holiday Treats


    Holiday Treats...

    are one of the best parts of the winter months. Festive celebrations, office parties and friendly gatherings have us eating (and drinking) more than our fair share this time of year. Unfortunately, holiday treats and booze have become an inescapable part of the season. However, there are ways to trim back, clean up and cut calories (or try a "chocolaty" vegan spin). Low sugar, tofu-based desserts are one of the season’s best-kept secrets. Come holiday time, tofu is our secret weapon in the desserts department. It makes for high protein, low fat and low sugar treats the whole family can enjoy.

  • Eating Smart Through the Holidays

    Thanksgiving Centerpiece

    The month of Thanksgiving is here...

    and with it we kick off the holiday season. Shorter days, holiday vacations and football games are just a few excuses to gather with loved ones this time of year. Cold weather begs for warm and comforting dishes, and we’re all happy to enjoy a home-cooked meal in lieu of braving the cold winter weather round dinnertime.
    But be aware, as it is easy to pack on the pounds this time of year. If you’re anything like us, your appetites surely grow as the weather cools down. These are the months we have playfully dubbed, “pie season” for their endless goodies and rich celebratory fare.

  • Easy Tofu Skillet with The Vegetarian Mama

    Morinaga Easy Tofu Skillet Header

    School is back in session and after school activities are ramping up. Busy schedules are in full swing. But what about dinner on those hectic nights? We all have to eat, right? Somehow dinner gets neglected. Even with crunched time frames, you can make dinner happen. You need to plan a little and pick recipes that are simple to make. My family eats tofu at least once a week. We love to play with the flavor of tofu and how it blends with other foods. One of our favorite meals are zoodles. Have you heard of zoodles before? It is zucchini that has been spiralized. It is a great way to get more vegetables into your diet, a great alternative to pasta and they are fun to eat. You can make zoodles by using a hand held spiralizer or a hand crank machine. Both items are inexpensive to purchase. Many grocery stores are now offering ready-to-go zoodles in the produce section. Keep your eye out for those!

Is there something magic in the turn of a page that just can’t be found online? We’d like to think so.

    Ingredients An open cookbook can be easier to handle when assembling your ingredients.
