Tangy Almond Baked Tofu
- 1/2 package of extra firm tofu
- 3 T Raw Almond Butter
- 1 t of minced garlic, or 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 t ground ginger (fresh is best but I didn’t have any)
- 1.5 T Tahini
- 1 T agave
- Just under 1/2 c water
- 1.5 T apple cider vinegar
Directions: Preheat oven to 375F. Mix all ingredients by hand very well. Chop tofu into 1/2” pieces. Score each piece so marinade can soak in. Pour half of sauce into a small casserole dish. Add tofu and pour remaining sauce over top. Refrigerate for 1 hour or simply cook immediately. Cover with aluminum foil before baking and bake 15 mins. Uncover, stir, and cook another 7 minutes. Serves 2.
Scoring the tofu with a knife:
Well, the sauce was amazing. It was like a more thinned out version of my almond butter. :) So very creamy with a slight tang from the vinegar. This sauce would be awesome on chicken!
The tofu? I admit, I was not 100% sold on eating tofu like this. The texture was a bit hard to get used to, and I am not typically grossed out by ANY textures. I wonder why it is the tofu that gets to me? I ate it, but it wasn’t quite like I imagined it to be! I much prefer the tofu in my smoothie. I would really like to try grilling my tofu to make it crispier. The tofu tonight was just a bit too rubbery!
Along with 1/2 a flatbread bun and a few handfuls of classic smarties :)
Here are two new supplements that I bought on sale at the grocery store:
Omega 3 capsules (that I have been out of for a while now) and Probiotics! After hearing Kris Carr rave about the probiotics I knew I had to try it out, especially since I don’t get probiotics from dairy yogurt anymore.
So now I am taking the following supplements:
- 2 Calcium/Mag.
- 1 vitamin D
- 1-2 probiotics (it says up to 3 a day)
- 1 omega 3
I didn’t end up going outside today to workout because the sun hid behind a cloud when I went to workout and I couldn’t be bothered. I am such a sun snob! I only enjoy working out outside when it is sunny. lol.

I took a couple ‘strength’ breaks during my treadmill workout today. I did 2 side planks and 30 leg lefts on each side. I love doing strength breaks during the treadmill workout because sometimes I just need to get off and do something else!
Today I was also studying for my food exam that is coming up in early June- so I was very very bored. Learning about bacteria, pathogens, parasites…not my cup of tea!

Glo Bakery Logo:
I finally completed the logo after many revisions! I ordered my business cards today from Print100.com. They had the best prices out of all the quotes I got- including free shipping! Special thanks to the wonderful Lindsay and Mara for the help!
I could honestly spend hours and hours longer twiddling with this logo and the business card design, but I had to just order the damn things and move onto another project! It was taking up way too much time.
I tried things like shrinking the heart, but to my surprise it looked worse, so I went back with the original size. I also think I am going to tone down the yellow glow on the Wholesome Food Made Fun, but other than that, I’m pretty happy with it.
On my business cards, I got ‘hot stamping’ in green for the Glo Bakery.com. It will have a green metallic finish on it and really catch the eye.
Peace out homies!
