Mexican Tofu

A question that I get all the time since I stopped eating animal products is: where do you get your protein from? If you are a vegetarian or a vegan you probably know that the options are endless.

I try to load up on leafy greens, beans, grains, legumes, sprouted tofu, sprouted tempeh and the occasional raw vegan protein powder.

If you are trying to consume less meat this is a delicious meal that will satisfy your body and soul.
