I need tofu 101

zackly | Mar 23, 2014 09:27 AM

I want to start incorporating more tofu into my diet as a meat replacement. I eat a lot of meat. I have many questions:
What should I look for and where should I buy it? I have an Asian grocery store nearby but I've never bought tofu there. Does Trader Joe's or Costco carry it? Is fresh in water better than than packaged? Are there preferred brands? Do they all pretty much taste the same? What is the shelf life? What's a fair price?

Thank you!
