"So that's five miso soup, four seaweed salad, three soy burger dinner, two tofu dog platter, and one pasta with meatless balls." OK, just the pasta with meatless balls. Not great but pretty good once I stopped expecting to taste meatballs.
Then there are the meatless chicken patties. Ummm... They taste THE SAME! I don't care if I never eat another real chicken patty/nugget. (I'm sure chicken breasts will be harder to replace.)
I made some fantastic black bean soup, which kept me fed and happy for about three days. Oh, and today I made a sandwich of lemon hummus, black olive slices, diced tomato, and feta crumbles on a Pepperidge Farm Deli Flat. Could've used a little diced onion, but it was still damn good.
I've switched to vegetarian burritos at Chipotle and veggie delight subs at Subway. I'm not really pining for steak or burgers or luncheon meats. As long as my budget holds up, this could actually work!
I don't think I'll ever be vegan, but vegetarian is good enough for me -- in theory, nothing dies for cheese or even eggs. I think, though, that I may end up semi-veggie with occasional fish and daily fish oil.
