Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Tofu is low calorie, contains no cholesterol and is an excellent source of protein, iron, and calcium. It contains all eight essential amino acids. Soya protein (from which tofu is derived) is believed to help lower levels of bad cholesterol (LDL). Whole wheat/ gluten free/quinoa noodles not only provides satiety but also is much healthier than simply the noodles made from refined flour (maida), as it is a whole grain. Quinoa is a complete protein containing lysine which is absent in other grains. Also, it is gluten-free which benefits gluten intolerant/celiac disease patients
