Vegan and vegetarian diets are gaining popularity today. Several people decide every day for such a lifestyle, in which one renounces all sorts of animal products. Of course, this fact has many advantages and disadvantages, and explanations. Everyone has their own subjective reasons, but on the whole we can conclude that some people are too disappointed with the torture over animals. On the other hand, there are many of us who just want to keep their bodies as clean as possible. Fitness freaks , vegans and vegetarians understand this in a variety of ways, but the general rule is that you should not consume sugar or carbs while eating. If you do not consume meat next to it, you need to find other sources of protein. Such are, for example, the soy products. They are originally from the East (eg from China) but are becoming more and more common in Europe and America.
Here our team would like to throw special light on a specific soy product: tofu.
