Korean Spicy Tofu
I am now concentrating on losing weight, this has made me understand more and more the importance of foods high in nutrition and fiber. I want to build muscle, according to research that if the body is over 30 years old, muscle will decrease by 1% every year. That means if I don't start exercising, then my muscle mass will quickly decrease.
There are also other studies which say that women are more prone to bone loss than men, which causes many women to have difficulty moving when they are old. This made me realize the importance of exercise before my whole body can't function properly.
I have read a lot of literature that muscle building exercises are one way to make your metabolism much better. I feel this myself, how the diabetes I suffer from is getting much better. Usually, I inject insulin as much as 8 units, before eating. Thankfully, now I have been able to reduce the level of insulin injection use by up to 6 units, although it hasn't completely disappeared, but I believe that what I'm doing now will help me live a longer and healthier life.
I read a lot about consuming a balanced protein will help to build muscle mass. It's been 3 months I've been keeping food, including adding protein in all my food. I'm grateful that Indonesia has a variety of plant-based foods that are high in protein such as tofu and tempeh, this makes me not bother to look for cheap vegetable protein.
Almost every day I consume tofu and tempeh, because both are high protein foods that are filling. That's why I always buy tofu and tempeh and store it in the refrigerator. Whenever hunger comes, I immediately make tofu and tempeh-based food easily.
This time, I also want to share a special recipe that will help you get vegetable protein without having to pay a lot of money. This is my go-to recipe, you can make it anytime without the hassle. Usually, I use whatever ingredients I have at home. So, curious about the recipe this time? Check this out.

Thank you for sharing.
Tofu is one of my favorite food, and I'm interested to re-make your recipes. But first, I need to buy some of the listed ingredients 😁
A little recommendation from me, you might want to try changing the normal rice into red rice, most articles I read said that it helps to control our sugar level better than the normal rice 😊
I know in God's time the insulin you intake will be lessened. Always remember that God is always good and He will never give you what you can't bear.
Such a delicious food. I really wonder how it will be done. Thank you for sharing this one, now I know the process then. Take care and God bless.
Looks so good. Delicious and tasty food.
