Tofu, Green Bean & Asparagus Stir Fry

July 30, 2019

 

 

 

Star of the Show:  Tofu

 Organic Tofu is a great plant based protein source. Each 150gm serving contains a whopping 18gms of protein. Including organic tofu in the context of a varied diet may be helpful for those of us in peri menopause or menopause. Soy is a phytoestrogen and this may act as a weak oestrogen, which  may help relieve some menopausal symptoms by boosting oestrogen levels in the body slightly.

  • 1 red pepper thinly sliced
