Famous quotes containing the words folding and/or protein:

    I’m folding up my little dreams
    Within my heart tonight,
    And praying I may soon forget
    The torture of their sight.
    Georgia Douglas Johnson (1886–1966)

    Firm-style bean curd insoles cushion feet, absorb perspiration and provide more protein than meat or fish innersoles of twice the weight. Tofu compresses with use, becoming more pungent and flavorful. May be removed when not in use to dry or marinate. Innersoles are ready to eat after 1,200 miles of wear. Each pair provides adult protein requirement for 2 meals. Insoles are sized large to allow for snacks. Recipe booklet included.
