Contrary to what many people believe because of lots of circulated misinformation, phytoestrogen, which is found in soy products like tofu, is not the same as human estrogen. In fact, several clinical studies show that soy doesn’t affect testosterone levels or cause feminizing effects in men. Instead, soy protein enhances the growth of lean tissue while stimulating weight loss. It’s packed with amino acids, iron, calcium, and zinc. There is so much to discuss regarding this topic, but the main takeaway is that tofu is a delicious, nutritious, and impactful food to eat on a plant-based diet.
You may have seen the rise of air fryer photos going around social media. The benefits of cooking with them are amazing! They encourage low-fat meals, simple and clean ingredients, and using air to evenly cook your food. You can’t get healthier than that! This is a recipe that I cook several times throughout the week. It’s super healthy and packed with flavor. The best part? It makes for a quick meal (and even quicker clean-up)! Pair it with some quinoa and a big side salad with veggies, and you are good to go! Grab some non-GMO tofu, and let’ get cooking!
