Eggless Tofu Mayo – A Healthy Alternative
After this week’s feature on mandala art as a medium for self-discovery, meditation and healing, I thought I should find an essential culinary component that connects to ‘wellness’. So, I thought why not the eggless TOFU MAYO that I learned from the Ananda Marga Wellness Center (Cebu)? I stayed there last year for some cleansing treatment and dietary counselling. As a plus, I learned a few healthy vegetarian recipes.
|Real Mayo or Tofu Mayo??
The choice is yours.
Hopefully, you choose the healthier option.

I had been a pescatarian for 11 years when I turned vegetarian a year ago. I have been slowly working my way to a healthier diet and lifestyle. So I am always happy when I encounter a healthy recipe worthy of adapting into my regular diet. So today I share with you a healthier alternative to the very rich ‘real’ mayonnaise- the TOFU MAYO!
Tastes too good to be true
