Everybody needs adequate good fat in their diet, yet many people don’t get enough good fat, or even pay attention to the amount of fat they eat on a daily basis. While the term “fat bomb” may not be familiar to you (unless you or someone you know is doing a keto diet), homemade vegan fat bombs are a great way to help make sure that your body gets enough of the good fat that it needs for brain and organ function, vitamin and nutrient absorption, and hormone and energy production.
Did you know that you can make vegan jerky out of tofu? Even if you knew that, this vegan tofu jerky recipe is going to rock your world! It’s delicious, it’s so very good for you, and it’s so darned easy to make! If you have a dehydrator use that, but if you don’t have a dehydrator you can also use your oven. The House brand (which is the name of the brand, as compared to “house brand”, which means the store’s own brand) of tofu at Costco is great for this, and is what we use, but you can use any brand of firm, water-packed refrigerated tofu.

We call these protein candy squares, because they are delicious little squares of high protein delight. The keto crowd would call them ‘fat bombs’, but they are much lower calorie, and higher protein, than typical fat bombs. Best of all, they are gluten-free, vegan, very easy to make, and economical, because all of the ingredients are from Costco! (Although of course you don’t have to get the ingredients from Costco!)

Most of us have childhood memories of biscuits. The ones we devoured so hungrily as children tended to be packed full of butter, milk, and gluten, however.
Sometimes you’re away from home, and you need a quick, protein-packed pick-me-up. Something nourishing, maybe a bit sweet. Don’t reach for a candy or granola bar — they’re often packed with white sugar, and too often contain dairy or even gluten.
