All about Tempeh

Thinking about how much I love Tempeh!

Tempeh may be the most versatile and delicious form of plant protein. It is fermented soy-beans that have been formed into a cake. Some come mixed with grains or seeds. It’s delicious steamed, crumbled and used in patties or stir fried with your favorite seasonings. I love it with coconut oil, garlic, onion, braggs aminos and some citrus zest and juice.

One serving has about 170 calories and 16 grams of protein. It is a filling super-food. Among it’s many health benefits are the following:

  • Helps to reduce cholesterol
  • Increases bone density
  • Reduces menopausal symptoms (I can vouch for this one!)
  • Provides faster muscle recovery

The fermentation increases it’s many health benefits, and also increases hyaluronic acid in your skin to keep it tight, moisturized, firm, strong and glowing!

Tempeh is also rich in pantothenic acid with helps to increase energy, slows down aging and reduces gray hair. It’s full of vitamin B-6 which helps to make melatonin for healthy sleep and increases brain health. It contains riboflavin which also increases energy and creates the liver detoxification enzyme glutathione.

So definitely add more tempeh to your healthy plant based diet. Eat Heal Glow!! XOXO
