I Hate Tofu. What About You?

I know a lot of people have health and wellness or losing weight as New Year's Resolutions.  Wonder how many are still on the band wagon now that it is almost February.  Perhaps it would be motivating for all of us to share some of our favorite healthy foods---meals that you really enjoy eating. I have tried to get excited about tofu and sneak it into the spaghetti sauce but, to tell you the truth, I don't like it.  And I don't like beets either or split pea soup, no matter how healthy they are.  Here are some healthy meals I actually prepare at home and really enjoy eating.

Lentil soup made with a hambone and served over a little brown rice.
Oatmeal with apples and a few nuts, sweetened with Splenda.
Scrmbled eggs and cheese.  My husband makes the best ones!
Chili made with turkey.  Double the beans and tomatoes.
Black bean soup over brown rice, topped with salsa.
Homemade vegetable soup with little or no meat.
Pasta salad heavy on the black olives + Zesty Italian dressing
Lettuce salad +gabanzo beans+black olives+vinagrette

Do I eat this well all the time?  No I don't.  Life is short and we must have time for ice cream too.  And sometimes a hotdog with slaw on top.  All things in moderation I say.  But the more easy-to-fix healthy foods we have in our repetoire, the more likely we are to "go to" them when we're running on automatic. 

What do you prepare that is healthy and delicious?  I'd love to know.  Thanks for sharing!


  1. I don't mind Tofu, it is an acquired taste. When I was eating as a vegetarian I ate it a lot, but now I don't usually have it.

  2. I don't like tofu...I really enjoyed reading the posts on your blog. I would like to invite you to come on over to my blog and check it out. God bless, Lloyd

  5. Well that's 3 for 3 who don't like tofu! Glad there are other healthy alternatives out there! Thanks for your visit and comment. Please come back.

  6. Ha! The title of this post made me laugh. I used to hate tofu, but I've realized that when it's prepared well, I love it. I think the key is to really make sure all the liquid is pressed out. But I know a lot of people just can't stand the texture.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. :) I'm following you now too! Oh, also, my husband and I are moving down south to escape the frigid winters of the Midwest, so no more posts about it being cold down there. Let me keep my fantasy of 60 degree January days alive!

  7. I tried Tofu once and that was enough for me. I do love beans though. I make every kind, every way. Healthy and delicious.

  8. Okay ohkeeka...I'll let you keep your fantasy for awhile... :)

  9. Thanks Marla! You and me both. Beans...yes!!!!
