Michelle’s Weeknight Baked Tofu

Easy Weeknight Baked Tofu

Today is my 38th birthday (and Eating Rules’ fourth anniversary!). There won’t be much fanfare for this one, because, well, let’s be honest: graduating from your “late-mid-30s” to “late-30s” isn’t all that groundbreaking. I’m cool with that, though – I’ll save the hoopla for my 40th. Or better yet, for my 39th.

Tonight we’ll be dining with my parents at one of my favorite restaurants, Hostaria del Piccolo. The food is creative yet comfortable (I’m partial to their gluten-free spaghetti with lentils and cherry tomatoes). The service, wonderful (Christian, the manager, always welcomes us with open arms – and often sends over some lemoncello). The cocktails, far too good. And to top it all off, the prices are quite reasonable, too. So no hullabaloo this year, just a celebratory meal with my husband and my parents. It’ll be perfect.

To honor my “blogiversary” today, I think it’s time to update one of my favorite recipes. Ever since our friend Michelle showed us her tricks to baking tofu, it’s been a regular weeknight dinner in our home, and it deserves far better photos than I had originally given it.

Michelle was vegan for about ten years, and during that time she certainly cooked her fair share of tofu. She says the secret to this recipe is simple: “Bake the hell out of it!”

It makes perfect sense, of course — we’re putting something directly into our bodies, and they are literally breaking it down and absorbing it. Lately I’ve been thinking more and more about how products outside our bodies affect our health, most notably cosmetics and cleaning products. I’ve Continue Reading

Signs of Spring

Quite frankly, I’ve been a little burned out for the past couple of months. But then something happens – even if it’s a tiny but impactful moment – and it kicks me in the pants and gets me to log back in and start writing.

Moderation & Balance in the Real World

When Annelies and I were discussing my guest post for this month on the Attune Foods blog, she asked me if the words “moderation” and “balance” can go together when it comes to healthy eating. This is certainly a timely question, considering tonight is the last of the holiday gantlet (hey everyone, happy new year!), and I’m betting most of us (self included) haven’t been as successful as we would have liked at either moderation or balance over the past few weeks.
