Tofu Steaks with Mushrooms and Vegetables

My youngest is a tofu-a-holic and second only to miso soup, this is one of her favorite ways to eat the protein-packed bean curds. I love it because it comes together fast and other than making a pot of rice, all the ingredients are prepared in one skillet. This is my adaptation of a popular Cooking Light recipe, substituting regular mushrooms for shiitake but for a more authentic Asian version, try the shiitake or even oyster mushrooms.

Many Asian recipes activate all your energy centers as most incorporate a protein, grain and many vegetables and this tofu meal is no exception. Nourish all your chakras in this one meal.

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

This is my whole foods version of baked beans that can be eaten as a main dish; a little bit tangy and a little bit sweet. Serve this with a side of greens, homemade cole slaw or a crispy salad. I like it over brown rice, but a warm loaf of baked bread or dinner rolls would also suffice.

Lots of grounding Root Chakra and get-things-done Solar Plexus Chakra energy going on with these beans. Takes stick to your ribs to a whole new (energetic) level, in the best way of course!
