Use EXTRA FIRM tofu (NOT the silken kind) and press the water out (again...google if you're not sure how to do this..I just put it between two plates and let a few cans rest on top for about an hour).
I used one block and cut it into 4th's for 4 servings.
Heat up some olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion or garlic if you like that sorta thing (I do!) and add the tofu. Crumble it up with your spatula and heat it through, then add the spices!
Tumeric adds a little bit of a savory, sorta curry type flavor, but it also adds the scrambled egg color. I just used a few dashes because I don't particularly care for that type of flavoring.
Use whatever kinds of spices you like, but just because it's a vegan food, that doesn't mean you have to load it up, which is apparently a common mistake when people cook with tofu. Spice like a normal person. I used just a pinch of salt and pepper only.
If you're vegan you can use nutritional yeast, but I added some crumbled queso fresco!
Serve over a qrunch burger, in a breakfast burrito, or with home fries!
I've said it before, I'll say it again. I really and truly feel that the 21 Day Fix meal plan should be in every household. I'm not saying it needs to be followed strictly all day every day, forever, but it is SUCH a good guideline as far as how much of each food group most people should be eating to maintain good health and a healthy weight. I always tell my challengers that even if you can follow it 80%, you will likely see results, and you will absolutely feel more energy and much healthier.
That being said, I'm not one of those crafty chicks that has all sorts of crazy recipes. The Fixate cookbook is AMAZING, but aside from a few recipes (like Grandma's tomato sauce), you won't see me using it. I'm a simple girl. I don't particularly care for cooking. I get asked for healthy recipes all the time, and the truth is, I just don't have them. Unless it's for a date night in with my man or a home cooked meal for my boys, most of my meals aren't anything that requires a recipe. I usually just keep things simple by throwing together a protein, a healthy carb, and veggies, much like the meal options I've given you below. Of course, you're going to have to use the calculations in your 21 day fix booklet to figure out how many containers of each you'll need to eat, but here are a few simple sample meals ideas to get you rolling!
Hi! I'm Andrea Cummings. I am passionate about living a healthy lifestyle that I can MAINTAIN and that still lets me feel like I'm not being deprived. I like to exercise, but I also love to eat (nachos!). My main focus is to be healthy, not skinny, and to help others do the same! I love Jesus, but I also say fuck a lot, so if you're offended, I may not be the gal for you.
