most meat substitutes are highly processed and contain ingredients that aren’t desirable in any diet.I’ve been vegetarian then vegan for over 25 years before it was fashionable and I’ve researched every angle.
I have been in dietary trasition for almost a year now.
Instead of looking for any meat substitutes, my family and I gave up all meat and found delicious homemade veg and legume alternatives (try Angela’s lentil loaf – better than any “fake” meat you will ever find!! We eat tofu, mostly because we love the texture and find it easy to flavour with marinades.
The transiton for us is about real, plant-based foods.
For this reason we opt not to eat things like vegan butter spread, vegan mayonaise, etc. The journey from meat eaters, to vegetarian and now to vegan has been a slow steady process for us and we have enjoyed it tremendously and are reaping the healthy rewards everyday.
We have a healthy vibrant 22 month old and I am expecting another baby in March.
We have never felt better :) Reply What’s interesting about meat substitutes is that most of them have wheat ingredients.I have been a vegetarian for most of my life and used to enjoy some of these foods – veggies burgers or veggies ground round for a chili or pasta sauce.If you look at many black men in Hollywood, sports, music or hell, just the black men in the world around you, you’ll find that a lot of them have dated white women, and done so proudly–which they should, it’s your life, and it’s a free country.But on the opposite end of the color spectrum, there aren’t many white Hollywood men you can think of off the top of your head running around snapping photos arm-in-arm with African-American women.Maybe that’s why it’s so surprising, or dare I say, exciting, when you find out that someone with heavy Hollywood clout is courting a black woman.But you’d be surprised to find that a number of high profile figures of the whiter persuasion in music and film have a track record of dating, are currently dating, have dated, and love them some sistahs.
