Tofu Four Ways

Tofu Four Ways

Try one of these easy weeknight meals and turn even the most “to-phobic” into a fan.

According to a 2005 study by the U.S. Soybean Board, 30 percent of Americans consume soyfoods or beverages at least once a month. That means 70 percent of Americans are eating soy protein less than once a month—if at all. Why? Tofu is an economical, low-fat and cholesterol-free protein source. And consuming 25 grams of soy protein a day, such as that in tofu or soymilk, may help reduce risk of heart disease. But Americans still seem to avoid it. Maybe they don’t think they’ll like the taste or the texture. If that’s true for you, try our Kung Pao Tofu with extra-firm tofu cooked to a toothsome texture and dressed in a full-flavored sauce. Southwestern Tofu Scramble will convince you that tofu’s crumbly texture (it mimics scrambled eggs) can be an asset, not a detractor. Wow any crowd with Skillet Tofu Parmigiana—tender, breaded tofu patties, flavorful marinara and melted mozzarella. Give tofu another try, for your health and your taste buds.

Easy Dinners with Eggplant

Easy Dinners with Eggplant

Healthy eggplant recipes for a quick weeknight dinner.

If you lived in Italy before the 15th century, chances are you wouldn’t have been eating eggplant. Legend has it that the Italians feared eating eggplant would make them crazy, hence their name for it: melanzana, or “mad apples.” Today we see eggplant in a different light. This plump and glossy member of the potato family (which also includes bell peppers, tomatoes and tomatillos) has plenty of merits worth mentioning. One cup of cooked eggplant has a mere 35 calories and contains soluble fiber, the kind that may help lower blood cholesterol levels. The deep purple skin contains anthocyanins and proanthocyanins, antioxidants that may play a role in heart health and improve brain function.

Now that it’s back-to-school time we’re all busier, but that doesn’t mean we can skip feeding the kids (or ourselves) before we head out the door. I never leave the house without eating a healthy breakfast. In fact, I don’t do anything before breakfast. I head straight from bed to the kitchen for coffee and whole-grain cereal with fruit and skim milk. Unfortunately, since I’m half asleep I tend to eat the same thing every day. Breakfast rut!
