  • Tofu is amazing! I ate it tonight! It is also one of the only soy based foods that is 100% healthy for women. Studies show that too much soy for women can cause breast cancer and other issues. But tofu is completely organic and safe. It really tastes good. You might need to get used to the texture though

  • Ground Beef and Ground Chuck aren't alternatives. They're both meat.

    As far as alternatives there is tofu and some soy or veggie products you can try. If you're just looking for an alternative to red meat, then you can try ground turkey or ground Chicken.

  • Morning star or boca burgers....they're veggie burgers. They have a ground version that you can use in place of ground meat. I love the Boca burgers......yum.

  • LEAN ground turkey is good if you still want a "meat" product that's lean. You can make your own veggie or bean burgers rather than buying Bocca Burgers or Morning Star (You can make triple the amount of burgers for the same price as 1 package). Tofu is ok, I personally find it hard to work with, where I actually like the results....though if I buy marinated tofu at Wegmans in their salad bar it tastes awesome.
