Maca Tofu Breakfast Bowl.
If you follow me on Insta-story or Snapchat (kneadtocook) you know I document my food, with calories, each day. You also know that I eat some version of this bowl each & every day. Why? Well I posted a version of this recipe several months ago here. I quickly realized that this bowl satiates me for a good 3.5-4 hours – which I’ll be honest, never happens. I’ve traveled with this bowl weekly, prep it at home… wherever I am, I’m making it. PLUS, it has 60 grams of plant based protein which is incredible.
So this recipe is a bit different than my original & includes Gaia Herbs maca powder that I was able to try out. I’ve long been a fan of the benefits of maca powder. Maca root powder is comprised of approximately:
8.5% fiber (indigestible carbohydrates)
Vitamins B-1, B-2, C and E
Processed using gelatinization to make it more digestible and easier to absorb
Plus this powder is organic, vegan, gluten free and non-gmo. It blends perfectly into water, your smoothies or your tofu bowl. Sustained energy without caffeine. I’m a fan! I don’t share products I don’t personally use or love… ever!
1 block of silken tofu with the water (don’t drain)
1 teaspoon of Gaia Herbs maca powder
3/4 cup of frozen fruit (I prefer raspberry/blackberry combo)
2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
1/2 – 1 full scoop of favorite protein powder
Place all of your ingredients into your Vitamix or high speed blender. Blend until creamy and thick. Pour out into a bowl.
1 tablespoon of a flax/chia meal blend
1/4 cup of frozen berries

Last week I wrapped up 2 days of client meetings/traveling. I also hit 30 miles of running! This week I’ve been battling a low-grade cold type thing. Hoping to get past that this week 🙂
Sunday: 7.24 outdoor, windy miles
Monday: 60m elliptical/60m treadmill incline walking/weights upper body/core
Tuesday: 9 outdoor miles at 4:30a, nice & freezing
Hoping for Thursday to be a longer run but I’ll see how I feel. Have a great day!
