World Tofu Day
SPA Canada is celebrating World Tofu Day, dedicated to celebrating the many alternatives that exist to animal products and the many advantages of living a cruelty-free lifestyle. World Tofu Day is also an opportunity to spread awareness about the cruelty involved in the animal farming industry. World Tofu Day is meant to encourage the public to see tofu in a new way: as a tasty, versatile food that can easily replace many animal derived products to avoid encouraging the horrible farming industry.
Every year, the number of consumers of plant-based proteins is growing increasingly around the world and Canadians continue to add them on their plates. People are benefiting from changing their eating habits. Tofu, for example, is a great way to get away from animal protein, because with only one-third of a block of tofu (150 grams) a person consumes the equivalent of a serving of meat.
