Tofu has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease and is a great plant-based protein alternative. It also contains minerals such as calcium and magnesium that are essential for bone health.
Consult with your healthcare practitioner if you've had estrogen-sensitive breast cancer or a thyroid disorder as tofu may be counter-indicated.
