Crispy Tofu and Vegetable Stir Fry

Tofu

Tofu is high in protein and contains all of the essential amino acids your body needs. It also provides fats, carbs, and a wide variety of vitamins and minerals. When shopping for tofu, look for organic, Non-Gmo tofu.

There’s a lot of debate whether or not tofu is safe and healthy because it contains anti-nutrients. However, I say the good benefits outweigh the bad, and if you eat it moderately as part of a vegetable heavy, balanced diet, then there’s room for delicious, crispy tofu.
