Spice Up Your Life

Spice Up Your Life
Spicy Tofu

Some vegans like it plain, but others like it spicy! Personally, I like it spicy HOT!! Embracing a plant-based diet means learning to like new food items. One items that I NEVER intended to add to my diet is tofu. I simply didn't see any reason why I should add this tastless substance to a meal. Then I had an encounter with tofu that made me reconsider my reluctance to add tofu to my diet. First, it was when I had a jerk tofu wrap at Karyn's Cooked on Well Street. I missed the taste of jerk seasoning oro shall I say "jerk chicken".... don't judge me, I am just keeping it 100!! LOL.  Oh how I miss jerk chicken, but the jerk tofu was quite tasty alternative and it sufficiently satisfied my craving for carribean cooking. After trying to the jerk tofu wrap I decided to experiment with tofu occassionally when I prepared food at home. Then, something wonderful happened......I tasted tofu from Phoneix Bean, LLC.

I am now a fan of this company's spicy tofu. I wanted to spice up my life and this is exactly what I needed to do that. In fact, I did a Yelp review of this company. This tofu is so tasty that I can literally eat it right out of the container! I can't believe it.  During my most recent trip I reviewed a new business flyer and I noticed that my Yelp comment was on the flyer. Yea Me!

Phoneix Bean's Spicy Tofu Stirfry has become a staple in my household. Getting some of this tofu, however, is an adventure. The company is only from 9am - 3pm and you have to go directly to their manufacturing facility to get it. I travel from the North Suburbs of Chicago and it's worth the trip. A little bird told me that this container of spicy goodness can be found in some stores, but not in my area. I wonder do you need a password or need to know the right person to find out where and how to actually get it. If you know for sure have your people contact my people or simply leave a comment below.  Rumor has it , that the store is located in or near Lincoln Park. I do pop in and out of the Lincoln Park area, but the location that I go to now would be a shorter trip. For this reason, I make sure that I carve out time in my schedule to spice up my life with this tofu whenever I have an opporutnity.

    I am determined to live my best life now by making health and wellness choices that will lead to a long life. As a single-mom, lawyer, author, speaker, managing real estate broker, speaker, marathon finisher and global visionary with an active christian lifestyle who enjoys volunteering for numerous activities life gets very busy. I realize that I am usually the last item on my to-do list, if I get on it at all. I know some of you know what I mean. Well it's time to put first things first - me! I have seen and I continue to see the impact of cancer, diabetes, high-blood pressure, high-cholesterol and diabetes on family, friends and people in general. I know that I want to live a long and abundant life so I figured it was time, in the words of the late Michael Jackson, to "make that change!" So, this soul food loving sistah has decided to "go vegan" or shall I say follow a plant-based diet! How will I do it in this city of tasty temptations at each corner and a family of food lovers like myself. Well, the plan has been and will be to do it one day at a time. This is definitely a journey, a challenging one for me, that will take me on the ride of my life. I could take the ride alone, but there's no need to that when I have all of you. So, join me on this plant-based journey.
