When I went meat-free a few years back, tofu seemed like a foreign concept to me, but now, when cooked right and tossed in a mouth-watering marinade, I’m obsessed!
💡 Pro tip: always be sure to buy organic tofu to avoid gmos, toxic pesticides, and unsustainable farming techniques.
🌱 Fun fact: tofu is a great plant-based source of non-heme iron (heme iron comes from animal products while non-heme iron comes from plant-based foods).
🩸 Did you know that iron is an essential mineral found within red blood cells that’s necessary for the delivery of oxygen to every cell in our bodies?
🌱 Other sources of plant-based iron that we enjoy are lentils, beans, quinoa, dark green leafy vegetables, chia seeds, and hemp seeds. It’s important to always pair your plant-based iron source with Vitamin C so that the body can absorb it well. We love pairing our iron sources with oranges, strawberries, or broccoli!No-Bake Brownie Batter Rice CakesNo-Bake Brownie Batter Rice Cakes 🍫 Have you tried the latest viral food trend yet?
