Salads are one of my favorite meals because they're low in calories, full of vitamins, nutrients, and fiber, and they taste so fresh. Veggies aren't terribly high in protein though, so I like to add tofu to mine. A half a block of tofu contains 22.5 grams of protein. Plus it's so easy to cook up, you can make a bunch and store it in the fridge for the week.

1. Gently squeeze a block of tofu between your hands or two plates to get rid of extra liquid.
2. Dice the tofu and saute on medium heat for about 15 to 20 minutes with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a little garlic. Stir often so all sides of the small cubes get slightly browned.
3. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
