Tofu has gained popularity over the years especially as a vegetarian and vegan approved source of protein. Tofu is made by curdling soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into soft, white blocks. The process of making tofu is relatively similar to the way that cheese is made from milk. Tofu nutrition is impressive, and that’s why many people assume it’s such a great health food. Per serving, it’s low in fat and calories yet high in protein, amino acids, iron, and calcium.
The negative part of this story is that soy is actually one of the most commonly genetically modified foods in the world, and tofu is made from soybeans, water, and a coagulant, or curdling agent. The vast majority of soy consumed in the U.S. comes from a highly processed form of soy. The soybeans have usually been genetically engineered, cracked, dehulled, crushed, and subjected to solvent extraction to separate their oils from the rest of the bean.

Meat is a valuable source of protein and other nutrients. But when it comes to a healthy diet, it’s important to choose the right kind of meat and eat the correct portion size. Turkey is a relatively inexpensive source of protein, with more protein per gram than both chicken and beef, while remaining lower in fat and cholesterol than other meats. It also delivers vitamins and minerals.
Here are some key points about turkey meat:
- Eighty-five grams of roasted turkey breast contains around 125.
- In contrast, 85 grams of roasted dark turkey meat contains around 147 calories.
- The dark meat of turkey typically contains more vitamins and minerals.
- Turkey breast meat contains fewer calories and fat than most other cuts of meat.
- Turkey contains vitamins B-6 and B-12, niacin, choline, selenium, and zinc.
- Processed turkey meat can have a high sodium content.
- Pasture-raised turkeys typically have higher omega-3 content than factory-farmed turkeys.
