So, I am still feeling a tad bit "queasy" from yesterday. I've only eaten saltines and some fresh bread. Anyway, the hunger beast finally won me over and I just finished making lunch of rice noodles, shiitake mushrooms, and "fake" steak.
Now you may well know that save for seafood, I have given up meat again. I can tell you that I already feel a million times better. I have more energy and don't feel lethargic. Where as my sushi feast of Friday night could not be helped (did I mention how much I LOVE sushi?), I can quite easily avoid eating meat save for one item that no one can get right fake- buffalo chicken wings. *Drool*
Anyway, I've never been much of a red meat eater when I was eating meat. I would never eat pork. My only thing that was a weakness as I said was beef bar-b-que ribs and chicken. My mother would have to force me to eat steak and pot roast when we had it. When I switched over to being veggie the first time back in high school, there wasn't as much of a selection of items as there are now. Now, I find it easier than ever to have the foods I love in non-animal variety.
Now before I get people jumping on my back screaming that I must be some sort of PETA supporter, I'll have you know that I don't eat meat because I for the most part, really don't like it. I find it greasy and the texture doesn't feel good in my mouth. All the meat dishes I like are covered in sauces (i.e. wings!). Considering this, it isn't really hard to make a switch over... (save for SUSHI!)
So here are a few items that I find really yummy for people who might want to replace one or two meals a week with meat substitute. Who knows, you may find yourself not missing moo-meat.
