Tofu versus Sprouted Tofu… wait… there is a difference?
Background info: Tofu is made from whole soybeans, while sprouted tofu is made from sprouted soybeans. So what is the deal?

On a side note, soy in general is good for you and you should incorporate it into your diet. I LOVE tofu. I sometimes cut it up into cubes and eat it raw (insert blushing emoji here). Soy helps to lower your blood pressure and lower your cholesterol (LDL/bad kind). My favorite sprouted tofu:
It is delicious. Speaking of soy, I just got a craving for my favorite soy yogurt and I am going to go eat it now. YUM.
