What can I eat?
I have been thinking about giving up meat for awhile but now have become committed to it. I am having some difficulty in finding recipes and sources for vegetarians.
I am not adopting this life style out of any statement or as judging that eating meat is wrong. In fact I quite enjoyed meat dishes, but have decided to adopt this diet as an "exercise" to help me in my life.

I have found this quote invaluable:

"Fasting is useful, when mind co-operates with starving body, when it cultivates a distaste for the objects that are denied to the body."


Like I said before This is not a post to condemn eating meat, it is a post to ask for help. I'm hungry any suggestions?

2. Quorn "fake" meat
It's not soy based and the texture is pretty close to the real thing. They mostly do imitation chicken style "meat", but they also do a darn good hot dog! :9

Also, the New Laurel's Kitchen Cookbook. Excellent vegetarian receipes that don't take ten thousand years to prepare.
