Health Benefits

Tofu. If there’s one thing that I’ve learned from exploring healthy food options, it’s that tofu is a magical ingredient. Seriously, what other food can go from being the star of a dish to taking on the flavor of whatever you cook it with? Tofu is truly versatile, and that’s why I always make sure to have some in my fridge. Plus, tofu is packed with health benefits:

  • Source of protective antioxidants
  • May alleviate menopausal symptoms
  • May support heart health
  • Source of ‘complete’ plant protein
  • May support blood sugar management

Edamame. Edamame, the baby green soybean, is making a name for itself as a top source of protein, antioxidants, and vitamins. From age-related brain diseases to diabetes, it seems that soy foods can help us fight off just about any illness.

Here’s another recipe to try: Field Mushroom and Edamame Stirfry

Purple Cabbage. Purple cabbage is a delicious alternative to traditional green cabbage. Not only does it have the same rich flavor, but purple varieties are richer in beneficial plant compounds than their green counterparts and can help you stay healthier longer!

It’s packed with impressive health benefits, all backed by science such as fighting the inflammation in our body that contributes to many diseases, up to 32% less risk for heart disease and promoting gut health.

This baked tofu and cabbage with peanut ginger sauce is nutritious, delicious, and easy to make. So put on your apron and let’s get cooking!
