Happy Tofu Day

Today is the world’s Tofu day

If you ever tried any asian inspired food, you have probably seen tofu before. Tofu, a plant-based alternative to meat that is manufactured from soybeans. This square shaped object can literally be seasoned in any way possible.


Ever since Tofu entered the western world, people gradually fell in love with it. You either first try it from some Japanese and Chinese cuisine, or you find it at some salad store, because Tofu is a pretty common selection for healthy plant-based food. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, half a cup of firm tofu offers 21.8 grams of protein with 181 calories and 11 grams of fat. Most of that fat is of the healthy polyunsaturated kind. The high level of protein makes tofu a good alternative to animal-derived meat. If you are interested in eating more nutritious and low calories, why not try some tofu at World’s Tofu day?
