5 Post-Workout Recipes to Try with Tofu

We all know the importance of eating muscle-building protein after a solid workout. Did you know that tofu packs about 9g of protein for around 80 calories per serving? Check out a few of my favorite recipes that you can easily make vegetarian with the use of tofu!

We’ve had AMAZING weather the past few days (hello, 70 degrees). After last weekend of hanging out and enjoying a few too many indulgent treats, it’s time to get back on my daily workout grind at Crosstown Fitness.

I’ve actually been mixing up my workouts with a spinning class at FlyWheel Sports last week with a barre class on the horizon. I love changing things up as it keeps me motivated to workout and targets new muscle groups. Along with new workouts I’ve been trying out some new protein-packed meals, and wanted to mix in a special ingredient for all the vegetarian readers out there…TOFU! As the resident vegetarian here at AK, Abra suggested finding ways to add tofu to some easy, post-workout meals.

Because of Abra’s tofu obsession, I’ve become obsessed with it too. Seriously my scrambled tofu breakfast tacos are my favorite.  

I’ve been loving the ability to incorporate Nasoya Tofu in my recipes — they’re my go-to when I make vegetarian versions of my meat recipes for Abra to take home. New to tofu? Check out my previous post about ways to use the different types here!

This time around I picked 5 of my favorite recipes for a post-workout meal that you can easily swap in some tofu!
