Whether or not you are a vegetarian or vegan, tofu can be a great source of protein in your diet. For starters, it doesn't have a strong flavour, meaning you can flavour it for your own liking. Second, its super quick to prepare. Third, its affordable. Fourth, it's very versatile. Tofu can be eaten on its own, be added to a salad or grain bowl, served with veggies, baked, scrambled, sliced, etc.
One thing to keep in mind that soy products do not agree with everyone so be sure to watch how you feel after eating it!
