I never would have thought it possible, but I ate tofu last night and actually liked it.  My father-in-law was telling me about this mock ground beef and I was skeptical.  Tofu has always been a non-starter for me.  I've listened to so many people and cooking shows say that "you can't even tell it's tofu!!!" and that has been, up to this point, pure bullshit.

Recent medical issues have forced me to look again at healthier alternatives, so we rolled the dice on my father-in-law's advice.  And this stuff is as-advertised.  It looks and tastes like ground beef.  I tip my hat to the tofu wizards at Yves, mission accomplished.

It was only this past weekend that I said "Why would anybody want a veggie burger?  Why not just eat a salad?  Why pretend you're eating something other than what you're actually eating?".  So my status as a completely hypocritical asshole is secure.  I'll have to eat those words, and take some ribbing, but I'm happy to have some of my red meat dependent dishes back on the menu.

I realize this site is turning into a healthy lifestyle blog but I promise to start mixing it up.  The posts dealing with poop are tremendously popular.  I'll try and throw in a poop story this week.


  1. Clearly your healthy life choices need a better tag than "food" - and since "butterflies and rainbows" are taken, what about something like "sunshine and granola"?

    Yves ground beef was my first "holy crap, tofu can taste good!" experience as well. Still trying to dial in the ultimate veggie burger, though.

    Good job, Tyson!!

  2. Morgan was shocked that I didn't comment on this post... in particular your reference to poop. So there you go. I'm posting a comment.
