My Guide to Cooking Amazing Tofu

As a single ingredient, tofu has a lot to offer and it’s worth learning how to cook it well. I’ve gathered together all of my tofu recipes, tutorials, tips, and tricks together into this all-inclusive tofu resource.  You’ll be enjoying amazing tofu dishes in no time!

Why do you need to learn how to cook tofu?

  • It’s high in protein (13g/serving)
  • A source of calcium and iron
  • Mild in flavour making it ideal for marinades
  • Versatile – it can be baked, sautéed, fried, grilled, you name it!
  • Quick and easy to prepare – it can be flavoured and prepared in as little as 10 minutes
  • Very cost effective, 1 block ($2.27) = 4 servings ($0.57/serving)

Tofu has some awesome health benefits too! Studies have shown that eating tofu can help to lower bad cholesterol, and 25g of soy protein per day may reduce the risk of heart disease (in combination with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.) Check the label and look for non-GMO tofu.

Arnaldo Tamayo Méndez (1942-) was the first Black person AND the first Latino person in space.  

Phạm Tuân (1947-) was the first Asian person in space.

Why haven’t you heard of them before? Because they’re Communists. Tamayo Méndez is from Cuba and Phạm is from (North) Vietnam - an ace pilot in the Vietnam War, in fact. The USSR sent them up as cosmonauts in separate space missions in the year 1980.

Kronos - a force so evil - he devoured his own children. Three of his sons escaped - Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. They destroyed Kronos - and banished his remains in the depths of Tartarus. But, Kronos is fated to rise again to exact his vengeance on Olympus and the world. Only one half blood child of the three eldest gods can defeat him - this child shall be our salvation - or the cause of our destruction.

Thousands march on CNN to denounce its Ferguson coverage

By Dianne Mathiowetz 

Atlanta — The crowd had been organized by college and high school students. Estimated by the Atlanta police at 5,000, they gathered at CNN on Aug. 18 to denounce its scurrilous news coverage of the killing of Mike Brown by a Ferguson cop — with sensationalized images of “violent” protesters in the face of heavily militarized police forces and repeated character assassination of the dead youth.

The marchers filled Marietta Street, chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot” as traffic was forced to stop. Many drivers and their passengers echoed the chant, thrusting their hands out the windows.
