Tofu Mushroom Scramblewith spinach and fruit salad
When we combine tofu with a bit of yellow-colored turmeric, no one will even know that you're eating tofu instead of eggs. Packed with veggies and enjoyed with a side of fruit, this is one of those meals you can make a bunch of different ways but always feel good about eating. Our paleo version uses eggs instead of tofu.

Can't fairly judge this because we substituted flavored (habanero) chicken sausage for the tofu so it changed the entire flavor profile. We also used rotel instead of fresh tomatoes because it's what we had on hand. This was watery but tasty and the leftover scramble made a great omelette when added to eggs.
Not a winner. Bland, watery and an unappetizing color.
Love the healthy food built into this meal!
So, this is better than it looks, which is important, because it's quite an ugly dish. The eggs, for instance, turn greyish by the end, and it's all a bit wet. The recipe has an error as well -- you remove the bacon at the beginning, but are never told when to put it back in. We put it back in at the end, assuming one would want to maintain bacon crispiness.
I was surprised by how much I liked this - It looks like a mess but it's really good!
Added some extra seasoning, hot sauce and leftover feta from last week to round it out. Even my tofu-averse husband was fooled into thinking he was eating eggs!
