Tofu success without deep fat frying

I love tofu in Asian restaurants but know that they deep fat fry the pieces. I asked a Chinese friend how her tofu comes out so perfect . She told me to drop the pieces into boiling water for a minute or two, then drain. Then fry the pieces with just a thin coating of oil in the skillet. Comes out perfect without the excess oil. The outside of the pieces are nice and crusty. I use firm tofu for this.

fats

well instead of making goodies with sugar or bad fats I use very little or add things like unsweetened applesauce, or bananas, coconut milk, whole wheat flour, nonfat milk if called for, nonfat cream cheese, etc. little tricks that help lower fat and sugar too.

Batch Cooking Has Saved Me!

Struggle to cook homemade, healthy dinners during the week? Try batch cooking on Sundays. This week I baked chicken with oregano & lemon, baked pork chops, roasted potatoes & carrots, baked sweet potatoes, & lasagna (1 for this week, froze 2). From this I make my lunches, early dinners and my husband can make his dinner easily from the already cooked choices. Add ons are salads, frozen veggies and more. We eat well, I'm not exhausted, and I still have time for me after dinner to workout and chill out.
