    Tomorrow is my first day challenge. I’m not to eat tofu due to the estrogen. (post cancer patient)what can I substitute or do I need to substitute in order to keep a certain number of calories?

      Hi Cynthia!
      All the recipes in the challenge are nutritionally and calorically adequate and are dietician approved. You can definitely use a substitute of your choice that worths with your diet restrictions but we can’t say the nutritional profile will be an exact match for the original recipe.

    So good! We had this our first week and have made it almost every week since. Unfortunately we never have leftovers because my teen aged boys devour it. Very easy weeknight meal!
