Tofu isn’t know for it’s amazing taste. But it is known for it’s incredible soy-powered health benefits. There are loads of ways to incorporate soy protein into your diet (and reap the rewards) without sacrificing flavor. Here are a few ways, compliments of “14 Ways to Make Superfoods Delicious” by Lynn Grieger, to sneak soy into your next meal:
- Meatballs, Lasagna, and Meat Sauce – make any ground beef-based dish with half ground beef and half textured soy protein. Combine the soy protein with tomato sauce, tomato juice or milk, then add the meat and you’re good to go!
- Smoothie-time! 1) Grab a blender, 2) Add soymilk, silken tofu, fruit, juice, and bit of honey, or maple syrup, 3) Blend & enjoy!
- Stir-fry, Soup, and Casserole – just add tofu bits to any recipe to sneak in some extra protein
- Soy Nuts – add them to anything or munch on them solo!
Eating well doesn’t have to be boring. See which of these ideas are easiest (and tastiest) to incorporate into your meals for better mind and memory!
