meal preeeep! something i used to do every single sunday and wednesday without fail for a good 3 or 4 years straight. my short-lived bikini competitor season lit a fire in me, WHEW! i still meal prep here and there though, guys, because it’s convenient, and so, so beneficial to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, weight, energy level, etc., etc., etc., buuuut i’m not so anal over it anymore at this point in my life.Read More

so.... after having a bad experience with tofu a few years back, i haven't touched the stuff (other than in desserts, pumpkin pie specifically) since then. yikes! this dish...... has rekindled my tofu flame. i KNOW it will either ignite yours or make it burn even brighter! trust fit foodie le on this one, friends. you'll need your food processor for sure; here's the affordable, user-friendly one i rock with. homemade pesto always tastes amazing cause it's so fresh! clearly i've been missing out. i used Barilla High Protein Farfalle and i chose Nasoya's Organic Extra Firm Tofu Plus which has been fortified with vitamins B2, B6, B12, D, and Calcium. it's spectacular for peeps on a no/low meat diet.
