Tofu: The Healthy Choice of Plant-Based Protein
Hi friends of SlimGourmet! Tofu is a food source that can be easily obtained. Its cheap price, ease to cook, and great taste are some reasons to choose tofu as a plant-based protein to add to your meal plan. Some popular types of tofu include silken and firm tofu.
Tofu is a plant-based protein choice derived from soybeans. The amino acid content in tofu is important for us. These amino acids complement amino acid from animal-based protein. Additionally tofu is low calorie and contains some important micronutrients such as iron, calcium, zinc, and vitamin B1.
Generally, many people eat deep-fried and flour breaded tofu. These unhealthy cooking processes are high in fat and can lead to increased body fat. It is better to cook tofu with a little bit of oil (pan fried or sautéed). Alternatively, you can make desserts from tofu like one of SlimGourmet’s dessert menu tofu pudding.
Every week, SlimGourmet’s kitchen team processes tofu using healthy cooking processes and appropriate portions. For example this week, we have Salad Tahu Ketumbar and Sour Tofu Soup on our menu.
Let’s live healthy, happy, and prosperous with SlimGourmet!
