    Re: Tofuturkey, Kale alternative

    Kale is good, but make sure you have a good source of protein - beans are great, such as black beans, chickpeas/garbanzo beans, kidney beans - think soup / chili / stew / falafel etc. Quinoa is a...

    Nope, we aren't both. I was vegetarian for a long time, and now am vegetarian other than when inconveniencing others (visiting relatives etc), when traveling makes it impractical (think South America...

    If my piggies could choose to be anywhere, I think they would love to be in a lovely deep grassy meadow, with white butterflies dancing through the flowers. They could chut and munch on sweet...

  9. Re: Does becoming Vegetarian cause weight loss?

    Going vegetarian doesn't necessarily affect your weight. I have stayed exactly the same, even though I would say I am healthier now. I just have a larger body type. I'm satisfied with just knowing I...

    It might be tough to do, but just taking a deep breath and getting it over with usually helps in the long run. Then your stomach doesn't twist for so long with anxiety! Best of luck!

    Re: Meat Week

    Nope, nothing like that because I did it for health and ethical reasons, both of which are compromised if I eat any.

    I got Tofutti a few times, it has an odd smell but the taste isn't too terrible. It tastes almost regular if you put it in/on something else.

    I eat fish. I hate that fact. Parents, sadly, do have some say in what I eat. Cutting out meat was one large fiasco--if I cut fish it'll be a living, well you-know-what for me. If I had a choice in...

    Exactly, susan. While I commend lilpution for the work being done (woohoo!), it is just perpetuating the problem. I know that sounds harsh, but it's how reality is I guess.
