Tofu Trick

I love ice cream….and cheese…and cookies dipped in milk…and yogurts and ok, you get it. I’m a fan of dairy. Unfortunately, my stomach is not. Usually I tough out the pain – But this past week it’s been hurting for multiple days in a row so I knew I needed to make some changes.

I decided to have a dairy free day to see how I felt. When we went to the grocery store to prepare for my dairy-free day I picked up a pound of tofu.

Adam quickly gave me a death stare and said “Um I’m not eating that”. I know, I replied.

Then I found this recipe.

I pre-made dinner the morning of and stuck it in the fridge

Tofu, garlic, olive oil, oregano, salt and nutritional yeast

defrosted spinach

mixed together

boiled jumbo shells

Stuffed shells

seam down

marinara with basil poured on top – baked for 30 minutes.

“Dinner is ready!”

“MMM these are good” – Adam

“I know, right” – Alyssa ( whoa cockiness)

“Isn’t all of this cheese going to hurt your belly?” – Adam

“Nope” – Alyssa

“WHY (giving me the death stare again)” – Adam

“It’s tofu” – Alyssa

“UGH why do you do this to me?” – Adam

“It was really good though” – Adam

 Alyssa for the win.

    Tofu and I haven’t gotten along much recently. I’m ok with it and like it, but my stomach doesn’t share the same love. It’s lame.
