Tofu Is Your Friend

To help promote heart health, consider adding soy foods to your diet. The protein in whole soy foods – including tofu - has been shown to help lower cholesterol levels. Dr. Weil recommends incorporating two servings a day into your meals, and there are almost endless possibilities, including this healthy twist on a traditional favorite.

Slices of frozen tofu provide the "chewiness" associated with a truly good burger, and the dark marinade lends a "meaty" flavor and moist juices. This "burger" has all the character of its high fat cousin, without the guilt. Serve on sprouted rolls with tofu mayonnaise.
