Home Forums Prescribe 20: Discussions Tofu? Reply To: Tofu?

Hi Laura, Great question! Yes…you can use tofu as a substitute for animal protein. There is mixed research on consuming lots of soy but our stance at PN is organic, non-GMO soy is a healthy non-animal protein option. We definitely prefer tofu (and tempeh) over processed soy burgers, etc. You can find organic sprouted tofu at Trader Joes. Have you also tried tempeh? It has more protein than tofu and is simply made from grains, beans and nuts/seeds – another great non-meat option!
