Tuesday's tofu scramble :)

i didn't post yesterday because i was so busy!
i woke up yesterday to do my morning workout, and for a quick breakfest a whey protein shake, and oatmeal. well i had a good workout but an hour later i broke out into hives!

can you believe that? my neck and my face were all swollen and itchy. it was terrible. anyway these whey protein shakes are something very new to me, as of yesterday i've only had 3 in about a months time. so i'm pretty sure im allergic to whey!

how wierd is that? it makes so much sense though, i have had stomach issues since i was little, food would just go right through me. so now we have some idea as to why. its a very long and complicated list of trigger foods which is why i am so annoying about what i eat.

on to todays recipe!

Tofu scramble:
½ a block of firm tofu (I use lite from silken)
1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
1-2 tablespoons of soy sauce light in sodium
2 tablespoon nutritional yeast             
½ teaspoon of tumeric
2 slices of tomato sliced and cut into cubes
2 diced pieces of garlic
At least a handful of onions chopped (I used the frozen kind since I was in a hurry)
5 slices of zucchini cut up into cubes
A few (2-3) broccoli florets.
2 tablespoons of water
1/4teaspoon cumin
A sprinkling of crushed rosemary
And to finish it off, some grated carrots!

Cook the tofu by crumbling it with your hands with the vegetables in a pan, when starting cooking about 5 minutes in add in apple cider vinegar and just let that sit and cook. in another bowl, mix the water, the soysauce, nutritional yeast, tumeric, and cumin and water. feel free to add more water but it should make a very thick sauce.

stir into the tofu slowly and try not to concentrate into one spot. it may be very wet with a lot of excess so only pour the amount that you feel is right for you.
i like mine dripping with seasoning!

what shall i post next?! 
you'll have to wait and see!
