Like my earlier study session atmosphere? I really don’t like to study. I am more of the study the morning before the test kind of person. So I pretended I was relaxing and reading. Sort of worked. I think.Today, as you can see from above, I tried out the kid’s Chobani in honey-nana. It didn’t have that thick texture of your average Greek yogurt and tasted yummy. For 100 calories and 8 grams of protein? I’m sold!
I’ve been looking up other recipes for tofu and found a few cool ones I want to try. The two savory ones are from Eating Well, which are a Spinach & Sundried Tomato Stuffed Pizza and the other is Tofu Parmigiana. Love that site!
The other one is a chocolate mousse dessert from Chocolate Covered Katie. You know I had to try this one out. It was pure decadence! I’m totally in love. I just made a slight modification. Where she says to use 3/4 cup of melted chocolate, I actually put 2 servings of my dark chocolate mousse instead. It made it super creamy and chocolatey. I also use two packets of Stevia. Tofu is officially my new best friend.Here are my meals for day eight of the Veg Challenge. Do you remember when I mentioned that I made a stir fry using tofu? I actually just got around to trying it. Primarily because I was addicted to the black bean burger. The result? Delicious and I didn’t even notice the tofu in it!
I also finally used the kale and I decided to put it into the Spinach Chickpea Turkey Burgers. Instead of the turkey, since I am not eating meat of course, I used crumbled Tofu instead. Obviously it now becomes a Kale Chickpea Tofu Burger. It tasted no differentfrom the original burger. I love it and Tofu is definitely going to become a new staple of mine for sure!
