Numerous studies have shown that tofu has positive effects on health. Its ingredients and nutritional values are as varied as its preparation methods. Around 85 calories are contained in 100 grams of tofu. Tofu contains few unhealthy fats but some of the healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Due to the high protein content and the dietary fibres, the Asian "cream cheese" is filling and healthy. Tofu is also characterised by its high mineral content. The isoflavones and vitamins A, C, B, B6, B12, D, E, K and folic acid are also worth mentioning. It contains the minerals iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium, selenium, phosphorus and zinc.
Mindfulness, awareness, and rethinking habits are the themes. Start again and again with simple basics. "Give yourself a pat on the back sometimes!" - so you never stop learning, also with nutrition. Fasting in everyday life is a matter of practice because the implementation is not problem-free for everyone, but rather a matter of course that can become a habit. Fasting can be supplemented with "interval training". Growth hormone effects, BDNF can be significantly increased. Regenerative effects are documented and proven as well as cognitive abilities increase.
A so-called "power-dish" like that which Dr. Neal D. Barnard (Professor of Medicine, Washington) recommends contains one quarter fruit, one quarter vegetables, one quarter pulses and one quarter grains. The combination of two of these meals with intermittent fasting causes fat to melt away and activates the brain cells. Books such as "Powerfoods für das Gehirn" ("Power Foods for the Brain"), "Raus aus der Käsefalle" ("Escape the Cheese Trap") and "The Vegan Starter Kit" (which are listed in this blog) discuss some of the topics of this article in detail.
