Sesame Encrusted Tofu Steaks

I love tofu!

But, it gets such a bad rap for no reason and it’s so good for us! We eat it each week; sometimes several times per week. I eat it because I love it, but it also inadvertently helps reduce my menopausal hot flashes. I will link some articles at the bottom of this recipe so you can research for yourself how soybeans is not the breast-cancer causing, thyroid-damaging food the beef industry wants us to think it is.

Anyone writing articles about health, that regurgitates that eating cruciferous vegetables and eating soy damage your thyroid health or causes cancer, needs to not be in the health industry and is someone I know not to follow. It’s antiquated, unfounded, and ridiculously false information and it makes me very angry and frustrated. So read to the end of you also love soy — you’ll be happy you did!
