Today I finally took the leap and tried one of the many tofu scramble recipes out there. This is from The Happy Herbivore Light & Lean by Lindsay S. Nixon. I don’t know what took me so long! This was super simple. Didn’t even press the tofu, just crumbled it. This time I’m enjoying it plain with fresh avocado, heirloom tomatoes and TJ’s European Style Whole Grain Bread (which is like tender whole grains miraculously held together in a toast-able slice. Mmm.)
Funny, my friend BMill and I just yesterday confessed to each other our mutual passion for a broad supply of spices. It was great to have cumin and tumeric in the cupboard when I needed it this morning. That wouldn’t have been the case a couple of years ago.
As some of you know, I got serious about eating a plant-based whole food approach to eating earlier this year. I’ve learned a lot and found new favorite foods. Lost weight, lowered my cholesterol and got off of blood pressure meds I’d been on for decades.
The only really hard part is eating out. Not a lot of choice, almost always a compromise (I try to avoid added oils.) But less eating out is good for the budget in the long run! Spending the money I save on new, smaller clothes.
