Recipe of the Month: Chocolate Mousse

First of all, Happy New Year! May the New Year bless you with health, prosperity, and happiness.


Are you in for veganuary this year?

Veganuary is the global pledge to try veganism for the whole of January.


💚 FOOD OF THE MONTH – TOFU 💚

In light of the veganuary movement, this month we are featuring one of the most widely-used plant protein sources: tofu!


💡 Tofu facts: it’s a major source of plant-based protein. It comes in different textures from ultra-soft to firm. It’s made by pressing condensed soy milk into blocks in a process that’s similar to cheesemaking.


Because it actually tastes pretty bland, it can be added to tons of recipes, marinated, grilled, broiled, stir-fried, and more!


💪🏾 Among its many health benefits, it may lower your chance of heart disease, is linked to a lower risk of some cancers (breast, digestive system, and prostate), and appears to help keep blood sugar under control.


✅ It’s also believed to help balance hormones, reduce bone loss, improve the elasticity of skin, and improve your memory (especially for women over 65!).


👉🏾 One of the knocks on tofu is that it’s made from genetically modified soybeans. If that is a concern for you, be sure to choose a non-GMO brand, which you should be able to find at most supermarkets.


Whilst tofu is usually associated with savory dishes, it actually works for desserts too! If you've been in my world for any length of time, you'd know I don't believe you should cut out any food as you lose weight, because it's unsustainable.
