What To Eat Next: Tofu Banh Mi


Who doesn’t find lunch to be a conundrum?  At MfL, we are always looking for simple, quick, and healthy lunch options, which now include our Tofu Banh Mi.  To make this, you will need two slices of tofu, half a cucumber, a carrot, a few cilantro stems, Sriracha, vegetable butter spread, and two thinly sliced pieces of toasted bread.  We also recommend sauteing the tofu for three minutes in 1 t. tamari, 1/2 t. honey/agave, and 1/4 t. Sriracha.  Enjoy!


Where To Buy: Refurbished Vitamix Blenders

MfL has tested out several blenders, and we consistently find that Vitamix really is the industry standard. While certainly worth the investment at the retail price of $400 – $500, this is a major purchase. As a result, we were excited to learn that Vitamix is now selling refurbished models for $299, a significant discount off the price of the new models. Even better, the refurbished models come with A FIVE YEAR WARRANTY included in the sales price.
