Endurance swim set and tofu pistachio stir-fry



What a beautiful meal to fuel my body last night!

For the tofu, spritz your pan on medium heat with olive or sunflower oil. Cube firm tofu and cook until golden brown, tossing lightly occasionally to prevent sticking. Season with turmeric and rosemary and a pinch of salt.

My meal creation also included arugula, mixed greens, red bell pepper, tomatoes, pistachios and brown rice.

To make this your own creation:
Choose your leafy greens
Choose 2-4 types of veggies (or fruit/veggie)
Choose your type of protein ~20 grams (you can have a mix of protein)
Choose your type of whole grain or starch (ex. potatoes, noodles)
Choose your type of nut/seed
Top with your choice of dressing, oil or salsa
