Super easy, super-firm, super yummy baked tofu

Baked tofu is delicious. Packs a mean protein punch and is way too expensive I'm stores. . Making it is a snap and you get to customize it to YOUR taste buds and save a few pennies in the process.

This recipe takes about 5 -10 minutes to assemble and about 30-40 minutes to bake. No pressing, no marinating, and some fairly straight forward ingredients. 
I mean, you guys have tahini at this point in your life right? ;)
Of course my version is oil free and adapted from a recipe I started with from Vegan Eats World.
Super easy, super-firm, super yummy baked tofu

So I haven't written anything here in like forever. Honestly the last 6-8 months I have been getting less and less strict about what I eat. I can't call myself vegan anymore. Even if that is how I have eaten 80-90% of the time lately. I also hadn't limited the fat intake as much and let my exercise routine go to shit. I haven't been sleeping much and I have been dancing and having a lot of "fun".

I started to get this nagging mild nausea this summer and it was really starting to bug me. I decided it was time to spot check my blood sugar and low and behold its skyrocketed back to my diabetic levels.

This really bummed me out....

I had also gained some wight back. I didn't care about that so much. But I care about my blood. I started to get that anxious feeling of worrying about your health that was all too familiar for me.

I guess after 2 years of having reversed my diabetes and maintaining 60-70 pound weight loss I was starting to feel bullet proof.

Sadly…
