Introducing: Asian Roasted Tofu with Noodles
At Bite Club HQ we’ve been listening to your requests, and we’re happy to say that your prayers have been answered! We’ve been working hard to make sure we have lots of options for our lovely vegan and vegetarian friends and have recently launched two brand new tofu dishes to our menu. They’ve been a hit so far, and judging by the great response we’ve received, we think it’s safe to say that they’re here to stay!
All our meals are filled to the brim with loads of superfoods and other amazing bits and pieces, and the Asian Roasted Tofu with Noodles is no different.
Let’s have a look and see what we’re dealing with…
If you’re a bit of a tofu novice, this meat substitute can seem a little bit intimidating. But fear not! Tofu is very, very good for you, and you’ll be happy to hear that we do all the hard work for you and prepare it to perfection, so it tastes fantastic – your days of wet and ‘sloppy’ tofu are over!
So how is tofu made? Good question! It’s made of soy which is curdled and then pressed into a solid block and is a must for vegetarians and vegans as it is a source of protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. It is also packed full of iron, which helps to increase your energy levels as well as create the protein in blood which carries oxygen throughout your body.
We’re kind of ginger geeks here at Bite Club, and once you know the benefits you’ll be joining us on the ginger geek bandwagon! This spice is said to help relieve nausea, including travel sickness. So, if you’re ever travelling a long distance again make sure to pack some ginger! Ginger is also great for your digestive health and is recommended to help treat problems such as bloating and indigestion.
Whole Wheat Sesame Noodles
Who doesn’t love some noodles at lunchtime? Especially if they’re delicious and are good for you! So, throw away that Pot Noodle you’ve got lingering the cupboard for emergency last minute meals and stock up with some whole wheat noodles. Whole wheat noodles are rich in Vitamin B6, which helps our body convert food into usable energy. They also contain insoluble and soluble fibre, which have two very important functions. Soluble fibre helps to reduce our cholesterol levels and slow the release of sugar into the blood. Insoluble fibre helps speed the passage of material through the gut.
The high fibre content of these beans keeps your digestive health in tip-top condition. This is because they are rich in insoluble fibre, which helps move waste through the gut. They are also a fab source of soluble fibre, which may help to reduce levels of bad LDL cholesterol.
Edamame beans are the most protein rich in the world of beans, and is also a super source of Vitamin K, which is needed for our bones to use calcium. It also helps your blood clot normally.
Red Peppers are the top dog when it comes to peppers. This is because they contain 11 times more beta-carotene and 1.5 times more Vitamin C than green peppers. They are also a fab source of Vitamin C which works wonders for your skin! This is because Vitamin C is necessary for our body to produce collagen- this protein is essential for healthy bones, teeth and gums!
Sweetcorn is a fab source of lutein, an antioxidant which protects your eyes and skin. It is also a source of insoluble fibre which is great for your digestive health.
Carrots contain the phytochemical beta-carotene, which may help to maintain our eye health (this whole seeing in the dark thing is beginning to make sense, right?). Beta-carotene is also an antioxidant which helps to protect the skin from free radicals, which may accelerate aging.
Onions are fantastic for improving your digestive health. This is because they contain a type of fibre which acts as a probiotic, which boosts the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut.
Our Asian Roasted Tofu with Noodles is packed with nutrients, which is a great contribution towards your RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance). It contains a whopping 117% of your RDA of manganese, which helps to control your blood sugar levels. It is also great at helping chemical processes in the body such as energy production. As well as this it also contains 64% of your RDA of vitamin C, which helps protects cells that make up the immune system and is great for your skin and eye health.
So, there we have it, there’s a lot of facts and figures and scienc-ey stuff going on in this blog, so why not relax and unwind with one of our fabulous meals. May we suggest… Asian Roasted Tofu with Noodles?
