Tofu has been a favorite for vegetarians – but did you know that it’s good for your heart? This amazing food is rich in isoflavones, which can lower the risk of heart disease in post-menopausal women. A study by the American Heart Association concluded that adding just one serving of tofu to your diet per week can lower your chances of heart disease by up to 18%! In the Asian countries where a lot of Tofu is eaten, the amount of people suffering from heart disease is significantly less than in the West.
Tofu is also an excellent source of plant protein, so it’s great for the vegetarians and vegans out there who want to look after their fitness!
Tofu can be cooked in a whole host of delicious ways. Add it to salads or marinate it before grilling to replace your usual serving as meat. It also is fantastic in stir-fries and curries.
