E2 28 Day Challenge Day 24: No Joy in Soy.

Tofu was my gateway food into becoming a vegetarian. In my teens I’d tofu-loaded meals, not quite knowing how to transform the flavorless white slab into a show stopper. Perfecting my technique, in college I flew through almost a container of tofu a day, preferring it cubed and fried, simmered in soy and ginger sauces over rice.  Now, tofu is a cruel mistress, requiring a digestive aid to be consumed without issue. Why happened tofu? Where’d we go wrong?

Yesterday I managed to find tofu in just about every meal. A rarity these days, however, I have to say, my team members work some crazy, irresistible magic with tofu- the chicken fried tofu is simply too tasty to pass up a cube (or 5). The last day of a busy week, I certainly choose convenience- with a vegan filter, over sticking to the E2 guns. As 4-weeks of this diet winds down, I’m finding it easier and easier to sneak in bites of this and that, truth day comes Monday morning at 7:55AM!
