Adobong Sitaw with Tofu and Pork

Adobong Sitaw with Tofu and Pork

I wanted to change my diet to a plant-based diet. My reason is because it’s healthy and it would be a great help with my Silent Reflux (or Laryngopharyngeal Reflux). But it’s really hard because I love food — and I love meat – it’s too delicious to give up… huhuhu

So first I thought, I’d have a Flexitarian Diet where in I would be eat plant-based meals five days a week and have meat twice a week. But it’s also too difficult because of the schedule adjustment with the kids starting school and my family not really into the plant-based lifestyle. So I thought, I’d just cook and eat as much plant-based food as I can — yung kung kaya lang ng schedule.

And today nga, I decided to cook Adobong Sitaw with Tofu but then again I thought my family won’t like it because they are used to Adobong Sitaw with Pork Belly — so what I did was I just added tofu in my usual dish.
