Can you think of any possible reason I would want to eat tofu?

Meat burnout?--I go through periods, where I just want to eat raw, plant things. I've had to battle cravings for tempeh before even though I never ate it regularly. I get sick of meat 3X a day.

According to some, quinoa is not technically a grain and moreover sweet potatoes aren't considered to be as starchy as their golden cousins. Are these two allowed when eating paleo? Also, what about tofu? It's technically made from soybeans... (more)

Sweet potatoes are considered a "safe starch" by most in the paleo or primal community. Quinoa are generally considered okay. Tofu on the other hand being soy, means it is primarily a GMO product, heavily doused in pesticides and is a... (more)

Okay, so I've read a lot of the research about why soy is bad, and while I'm somewhat convinced, I still don't think anyone has properly addressed the "Asian argument", ie the fact that a lot of traditional Asian diets contain a lot of soy. For... (more)

I lived in Japan for five years. Two years in Yokohama: big city, modern etc. Three years in Fukui: countryside, bit more traditional, etc. Take my experience for what its worth. Japanese people do NOT eat a lot of soy. They eat tofu regularly... (more)

Usually by Monday, we run out of delicious meat/fish/eggs. So we eat tofu for dinner. Is it okay for once a week? And also, is it okay to eat rice a little everyday? It's like 80/20. What do you think?

I probably wouldn't eat the tofu that often, but honestly, I don't really care for it anyway. If you really like it and don't seem to be having a bad reaction, I think a smallish portion would be fine as part of your 20%. If you notice any... (more)

I've got moderate RA in my hands. I've been pretty paleo (a bit of butter and cream) and moderately low carb for several months, and my hands have felt great. At lunch today I had some hot and sour soup made by a local cafe -- it seemed from the... (more)

MSG would be my guess, or whatever they use to thicken the soup.

Question: What is the maximum amount of soy that one can eat without problems? Are there studies that have confirmed a threshold dose in relation to phytoestrogens, phytates, other things? Whether soy is bad or not is not the question, but mainly... (more)

The easy argument to make is that if there's so many studies showing that moderate or large amounts of soy cause so many problems, a small amount will to some degree as well. However, if you're only eating tiny amounts of soy that won't provide... (more)

I know that, in general, soy is pretty nasty stuff. I wonder, though, about tofu. I heard somewhere that since tofu is fermented, the typical caveats and criticisms that apply to soy don't apply. But I also heard someone claim that modern soy... (more)

I've made tofu in the past (my vegan days), and I can assure you most tofu is not fermented. You make soy milk out of dried, soaked soy beans and add a coagulant, then press it into shape (like you would a fresh cheese). Tempeh, miso, and tamari... (more)

Recently I came across a video on Youtube in which Sally Fallon talks about bread: ancient cultures that make bread actually ferment the bread and make sourdough. Well, tofu has been around for about 2,000 years too. So out of curiosity, is tofu... (more)

Not all tofu is bad, I would agree. I don't know the specifics behind it, I just find it ironic that it's about $8 at a traditional "chain" grocery and about $1 for the same quantity of fresh made at the Asian grocery. I also find it hilarious... (more)
