A quick word about my hunger: it’s ravenous since I’ve started working out and eating gluten free. The easiest solution was to simply eat more protein, but when I saw that I was eating five egg whites in addition to my two pieces of turkey bacon, I knew I was going to raise the grocery bill up.
As such, I started looking around online for ways to help quell this monstrous hunger. I’ve added chili powder to eggs, added 1/2 grapefruit to my breakfast, added a little bit of dairy (not paleo, I know, but it’s still healthy fat that has vitamin D); nothing seemed to work. I found this website and thought that tofu would be the new way to go: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/278340.php
Of course, I later found out that tofu is NOT paleo, and I dropped it altogether. Before then, however, I got a few experiments in.
This is the original Cumin and Honey Tofu: http://www.popsugar.com/fitness/Recipe-Baked-Tofu-7927710
Now, I didn’t have thyme, dill, or actual honey at the time. Instead of honey, I used some packets of KFC’s honey spread leftover from work. Instead of dicing it into cubes, I sliced the tofu into strips and I brushed the liquid mixture on them instead of drizzling them.
The thinner strips were a bit tough and tasted a bit burnt. The thicker ones are softer, but retain their original tofu flavor. Both versions were tasty, though, and this would make a good snack. You could almost pass it for jerky.
