Sautéed Marinated Tofu

I am obsessed with fried tofu. I’m so happy I found and put my tweak on a recipe for sautéed marinated tofu. I can’t seem to get enough of this. I blame my changing in eating habits on my initial participation in Arbonne’s 30 Days to Wellness. My body has been cleansed of all the icky things I used to eat and desire. Now all I want are vegetables and healthier food choices. I never thought I’d get so much use from the tofu press I purchased when I went dairy free.
