Using scissors, cut the nori sheets into very thin one-inch strips.
Heat oil in a skillet. Break the tofu into several pieces. Squeeze the water from each piece, feel free to do this over the sink or onto a paper towel, then crumble the tofu and add to the pan. Simmer for a few minutes until the tofu is heated.

Marney White, Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach
Marney White has been a fixture in health and wellness since 1998, when her book "Healthy Body, Happy Life" was published (Lipton Press). She has been a columnist for "Total Health for Longevity", has taught numerous cooking and wellness classes in Los Angeles and New York, and coached many people to wellness on both coasts.
In 2013, she realized that she needed to take her healthy lifestyle to the next level. Despite eating a balanced vegetarian diet since age 25, Marney's allergies, asthma and depression had been a life-long burden. Additionally, she was diagnosed with PCOS at age 35. Her studies revealed that she needed try a vegan diet, and see how her health might change without dairy and eggs.
The results were nearly immediate, and life-changing. Within 3 days, she had no allergy or asthma symptoms. She had no more reason to take the daily Singulair, ClaritinD 24 hour, and 2 Benadryl that had been somewhat managing her symptoms.
But improvements continued! Knowing that even organic dairy is chock full of hormones, Marney wanted to see how she would feel if she went off her PCOS medication. Unmedicated, she had been plagued for years with painful symptoms, mood swings, etc. And she was thrilled to discover that she now felt AMAZING.
Since hormones affect mood, Marney wondered whether she still needed her antidepressant. After all, mood is strongly affected by hormones, and hers were balanced at last. So after slowly weaning off of her antidepressant, she was amazed to find out that she felt incredible without them, for the first time in her life. As all most of her life, she had indulged her love of cheeses and eggs!
This vegan regimen works for Marney, but everybody is different. So we will embark on a journey to determine what is best for you - aspects of our diet can have a profound effect on our health.
Abundant wellness awaits you at the end of your fork!
