Snack Attack: Craving Salt?

So often when I want a pick-me-up snack, I'm craving something quick and salty. But reaching for a high-carb snack such as crackers or pretzels, often leaves me feeling even more tired.

Why not make a high-protein salty treat ahead of time that you can stick in the fridge and reach for anytime you need to satisfy that craving?

Baked Tofu doesn't take much time to make.

Ingredients:

1 block of extra firm tofu (press it between 2 plates to get all the extra water out)
Tamari or soy sauce
Honey
Thyme, Dill and Cumin

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F. Slice the tofu in 1/4 inch slabs, then cut those in half, so each piece is about as big as 2 quarters. Place all the pieces flat on an oiled cookie sheet. Pour tamari on every piece to "stain" them tan. Drop a dab of honey on every piece. Then sprinkle each piece with thyme, dill, and cumin. Bake for 30-40 min, or until the tofu looks firm and dry.

Why we love it:
Tofu is a great source of protein.
Honey is a much better option than sugar because it contains vitamins and minerals.

Fit's Tip: It's delicious eaten alone, but why not put it in a sandwich, or top it on your salad.

Anyone ever heard of SoyBoy tofu? I get it in bulk at my health food store. It's so firm - it's the only way to go.

That sounds yummy, I'm going to try and make it. I love tofu, but whenever I try and make it, it always comes out soggy and gross. Must be because I'm not draining the water, like what's recommended above...
