Homemade Fresh Tofu Salad – a breakfast that promises health and comfort. It’s been almost two years since we shifted to a salad-based breakfast. We made sure to include plenty of vegetables along with a reduced intake of carbs, resulting in significant improvements in our health and lifestyle.

Since then, I’ve been experimenting with various salads, focusing particularly on Indian-based creations with a distinctive touch. The salad dressings I prefer is usually by their minimal or zero oil content, keeping in mind with our commitment to a healthier lifestyle.
