Tofu Salad Rolls
The ultra-light Asian bites have it all: healthy fats that keep our blood vessels elastic, and valuable vegetable protein for muscles and connective tissue. Crunchy carrot sticks contribute a considerable portion of beta-carotene - a vitamin A precursor that is good for sight.
Vegetarians who do without fish simply leave out the fish sauce.
