    Here's a link for you Frank.

    Basically, tofu is good for your heart (can help with cholesterol), a good source of iron, a good source of protein, as well as a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Plus it takes on the flavor of whatever it is cooked with. If you are good with spices, it will taste fantastic (I think that's why it tastes best in Asian cuisine, I love the spices from that area of the world). I'm one of the crazy people who eats it even though I'm not a vegetarian. My boyfriend makes fun of me when I ask them to put tofu in certain dishes instead of meat.
