Taho Everyday

     “Taho” is a common snack in the Philippines and it is made of silken tofu. It is served with brown sugar syrup and sago (tapioca pearls).

      Taho is a very healthy snack mainly because tofu is made out of soybean and has high content of protein. It has been said that soybeans are a good source of complete protein. It is much better than protein from animal-based foods because it contains lesser fat. Some benefits of eating taho include reducing the risk of colon cancer and heart disease.

One of the things that I look forward to in going to the office is the “Taho” vendor. He comes in everyday at around 9:30 AM. Majority of my officemates also enjoy eating taho for their morning snacks. It is refreshing to know that our everyday morning snack not only benefits our taste buds but also our health.
