Nasoya wants to school you in tofu, launches online resource

Tofu is a staple for many vegetarians and vegans. The Cleveland Clinic cites tofu as an excellent protein, a good source of B-vitamins and iron and, if fortified, a good source of calcium. The Foundation of Integrated Medicine lists reduced risk of heart disease, lower levels of cholesterol, improved bone density and reduced risk of fractures, decrease in the incidence of breast cancer and lung cancer as some of the many health benefits of eating tofu.

But what do you do with tofu? Nasoya, a leading brand of tofu, has introduced Nasoya Tofu U, a "virtual campus" to educate consumers about the health benefits and, perhaps more importantly, what to do with it. With videos, simple recipes and even games, you can learn how to prepare and cook tofu.

Enroll in Tofu U and gain access to Nasoya coupons, recipes and videos demonstrating how to process and prepare tofu. Students who cook tofu once a week will graduate and receive Tofu U gear.

    I have read that soy is bad for you. Is this true?

  2. I would love those shorts but would need to eat more tofu before it could apply to me. Haha!!!

  3. Cynic the anti soy stuff is bullcrap, don't believe it. People have eaten soy for thousands of years.

  4. I have an idea for your site that will surely not happen but I think its a great idea. How about a pose off with some of the vegan cuties that frequent the site in those shorts in the picture. You know like who has the most extra firm vegan fed badonkadonk. I have a feeling your male readership would increase dramitically.

  5. Anonymous,

    Thank you for the suggestion but the chances of that happening are probably between slim and none. I don't doubt that our male readership would increase but conversely our female fans might drop off a bit. Once again thanks for the idea but I think we will pass.

    Hey but thanks for the laugh.

  6. Come on Eric! That would be a fantastic feature. Women who eat vegan and vegetarian cuisine have great bodies let's see some skin!
