If you’re like most vegetarians, you’ll find that tofu (or soy) is really one of the best foods around. Where else can you find something that’s full of healthy protein, iron, Omega 3’s, vitamins, and essential minerals? Plus it’s naturally low in fat and contains no cholesterol. Soy is a power food because it provides incredible nutrients in one single bean and there are many ways of using it. Soy can be used to make into soymilk which can be sweetened or unsweetened. Soy can be made into tofu – soft, medium, or hard texture. Soy can be made into nayonaise which is similar to mayonnaise except made with soymilk and soybean oil. Nayonaise is a perfect condiment for vegans since it usually does not contain any meat by-products. Soy can also be made into hummus which is a healthy alternative as well. Soy is such an adaptable vegetable that you can really use it for anything your culinary imagination can dream up.
Nasoya Tofu is one of my favorite brands that make really healthy and wholesome tofu products. They make organic and natural tofu and Super Hummus which is Nasoya’s first and only hummus to deliver twice the protein and half the fat of the leading hummus brand. Nasoya also makes sprouted tofu which helps the absorption of nutrients, nayonaise, and Asian-style wraps for potstickers, eggrolls, etc. In my household, I’m constantly cooking something with tofu because it’s filling and surprisingly, my husband and son loves it too. Tofu is so versatile that you really can’t say, “hey, I don’t know what to do with tofu.” But if you are ever stuck without a recipe, you can check out the recipes at Nasoya: http://www.nasoya.com/recipes.html.
Nasoya Tofu was founded over 30 years ago in a quaint little town in Massachusetts. You might be thinking – tofu made in the US? Well, it’s pretty common nowadays and it’s better for us anyway. When Vitasoy USA, Inc. acquired Nasoya in 1990, Nasoya expanded their tofu line to include Asian style noodles and wraps and Nayonaise. Now some of you may have already heard of the company Vitasoy. I was really delighted to learn that one of my favorite brands of soymilk beverages had acquired Nasoya as it meant bigger and better opportunities for a small company such as Nasoya.
Nasoya sources their soybean from non-genetically modified soybeans only and they make every step possible to source their soybeans from socially and environmentally responsible tofu farms. Their products do not contain any preservatives or additives so it’s always best to store their products in the fridge. You can find most Nasoya products in natural grocery stores and certain supermarkets.
Currently on the Nasoya website, they have a program called “Tofu U” http://www.nasoya.com/tofu-u/which offers everyone a chance to “enroll” in their university of tofu learning. There, you will find helpful tips, ideas, and suggestions on how to use tofu and their other products and when you enroll, you can even get a coupon for their products. And once you graduate, you can save your tofu packaging and earn incredible rewards such as t-shirts and gym shorts. Really cute stuff!
At Nasoya, they are really all about healthy living and learning how to live healthily.
