I remember when I was a kid and my mom would tell me she bought a zucchini muffin, I would think “Why would you eat zucchini in a muffin? Or zucchini at all in that matter?” Bottom line: I was a picky eater as a child. My family and friends would claim I’m on the “Prison Food Diet” because I only ate carbs (pasta, bread, rice) and water. They still make fun of me for it to this day.

How To: Tofu Scramble

I have been wanting to share with you guys how I make my Tofu Scramble for awhile but I have yet to come around to doing it until now.  So if you already don’t know, I love Tofu. Like…LOVE!

There is no cilantro in this recipe however it is… View Post
