Health Benefits

Turmeric is one of the world's healthiest super foods!  Adding this spice into a dish that compliments it will add a number of health benefits!

  

The spice is known for boosting energy levels, boosting mobility, is an anti-inflammatory, is linked to lowering the risk of heart disease & cancer and is high in antioxidants!  Truly a super food spice indeed!

The main health benefit is curcumin but it's poorly absorbed into the body's bloodstream. A supplement that contains Bioperine helps to enhance the absorption of nutrients by 30% or more.  Adding a supplement may help boost your immunity.

Budget Tips

To save some money when purchasing tofu buy it in bulk or on sale and freeze the extra product you don't need right away.  Tofu freezes well and there a 100's of other recipes were you can use tofu.

Purchasing turmeric in the bulk section of a grocery store typically reduces  your cost by 20-30% when compared to buying a branded spice in a jar.

Storage Recommendations

The best ways to store your extra tofu scramble or remaining tofu!

Place in a glass or plastic container that seals and place in the refrigerator.  The product will remain good for two additional days.

If your unable to eat any left overs within two days you can freeze the left overs and use within the next three months.

What to do with left over's or extra product?

If I have extra tofu scramble I love to make a tofu hash with kidney beans, fresh garlic, fresh ginger, jalapeno pepper and diced Japanese sweet potato's.

You can add your left over tofu into soups or Pho noodle bowls for lunch or dinner!
