Tofu Stir Fry dinner {with eggplant}

Never in a million years would I have thought I would make a tofu stir fry dinner. I joined a boot camp fitness program the beginning of the month at which point, I decided to try and change my eating habits for 30 days. I have been attempting to cut out sugar and carbs and let me tell you, it isn’t easy. My dad saw me preparing this dinner and he said, I hope you don’t think I am eating that? He is a meat and potato guy! I will admit, I actually loved this dinner and so did the rest of the family.

Be sure to drain and pat dry the tofu before cooking.

Would you believe me if I told you I have never tried tofu until now. I am the biggest junk food junkie and eating healthy has never really been a priority for me. However with age, I am finding that my body can’t consume the amount of carbs and sugar that I have been accustomed to all these years. I will admit, being 16 days in to a full blown 30 day bootcamp fitness program, I am actually feeling much better. My energy level is up and I swear, excessive sugar and carbs were making me feel bloated and tired. I am not sure if I will go beyond the 30 days with all this craziness but my fitness coach swears I will.  Time will tell!
