    This is soooo good!! I used silky tofu this time around together with spinach instead of collard and it was great! I will try it with firm tofu, kale, collard, ANYTHING! Yum.

    Surprising delicious. Even though I'm a vegetarian, I'm not normally a fan of tofu, but this converted me! The turmeric and ginger are a nice touch, and I added a bit of paprika as well. I didn't have collard greens, so I used kale instead and it was just fine. Pair this with some fruit in the morning and you'll be good to go for hours. Will definitely make this again and again!

    I wasnt sure if I would like this recipe but was delightfully surprised! I added spinach instead of collard greens and it was tasty. A nice change of pace from the smoothies in week 1!
