Yellow Death

Joe's been gone, which means easy/fast meals. Today, the kids were treated to Man n Cheese, also known as yellow death. With my new healthy living/eating plan, that just doesn't work for me. Honestly, the idea of eating that is a little gross to me. Have you ever looked at the "nutrition" label on the side?

So instead of partaking in death, I opted for tofu. Yesterday I was able to go to the Asian World market, when I was looking for sesame seed paste for hummus (I made hummus today!). I wandered over to the produce isle. I am always amazed at the great variety of products. It makes a regular grocery store pale in comparison. I came across the Tofu, and remembered that it's a great source of protein.

I marinaded the tofu in some sweet soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil. Then, boiled some rice, and steamed some homegrown zucchini. I also found some english cucumber at the asian store, which is, in my opinion, a thousand times better than regular cucumber. Here's the result:Grand total of calories: 250
It totally filled me up, and only took 20 minutes to make. Now that's what I call success

You've totally caught on to 'the program', but seriously... TOFU?!!!! You're way more committed than me, or maybe it's just that need for variety you seem to have:).
