If you’ve never tried tempeh, you absolutely must try this nutty tasting vegetarian delight! Tempeh is made by fermenting whole soybeans. It’s even a healthier option than tofu because of the fact that it’s fermented. Tempeh is pretty much a super food, and it’s packed with protein and fiber. Those two qualities help you to feel full longer and that will definitely help you in your weight release efforts! Other benefits include that it’s easy to digest, it’s low in sodium, and it contains natural antibiotics. Because tempeh is one of my favorite foods, I am going to share some tempeh recipes with you.
If you’ve never tried tempeh, why don’t you try preparing it for your Meatless Mondays and see what you think. There are some excellent recipes out there, which I have included links to the recipes!
