Discussing Questions And Answers About Dog Food Soy Sauce

Laura asks…

I would like to stop eating meat and become a vegitarian. What are some foods that can replace meat that are?

available in stores such as Walmart, Kroger,etc. My only worry about going vegitarian is not being able to find a variety of foods to eat,being that I dont live in a big city with alot of health food stores.

Jimmy answers:

Morningstar is a GREAT brand if you want fake meat. The fake chicken patties, nuggets, and corn dogs and mini corn dogs are all GREAT! They also make fake sausage links, sausage patties, and other varieties of burgers (I haven’t tried their burgers yet) that taste a lot like meat and are delicious sources of protein. The biggest thing is to make sure you’re getting enough protein!!

Boca makes great vegan burgers- they taste a lot like a real hamburger and they don’t have the extra junk the regular Boca “flame grillers” have in them.

If you’re on the go a lot and still like your deli sandwiches, Smart Deli makes great fake lunch meat. Even my suitemate who still eats meat says that the fake bologna tastes just like real meat. I haven’t tried the ham and turkey yet, though.

Gimme Lean is pretty good for a ground beef substitute. I made spaghetti and meat balls by rolling the ground “beef” into little balls and browning them in a little olive oil, like the package says. I wouldn’t try this until you’ve given up meat for a while though– I liked it, but my friend who still eats meat thought that the company didn’t even try to imitate meat when they made it. Once you give up meat, though, I think you’d enjoy them! He still thought they were tasty, but just not a good IMITATION of what meatballs really taste like.

Grain burgers of various brands are good, too, but some of them are gross. I know my parents like the Morningstar Tomato/Basil burgers or mushroom burgers. It took me a while to get used to having mushrooms as a staple in my diet, but you can actually fake a pretty good steak by cooking a big portabella mushroom with soy sauce. You just have to get used to the taste and accept the fact it’s not meat, but a substitute. It’s pretty good once you get past that! :)

Hope that helps!

Maria asks…

What vegetarian/vegan foods can i eat if i’m a very picky eater?

I drink soy milk, and i use soy milk as a substitute whenever i can.
I eat nature burgers from licks (the ones you take home) but i get tired of them.

Jimmy answers:

You can eat anything you like that doesn’t have meat in it.
Don’t forget that being a vegetarian doesn’t mean you have to eat tofu, veggie burgers, and smart dogs, although they are healthy nutritious alternatives.

Salads- spice them up nice with limes or lemons or banana peppers for dressing. Croutons, cucumbers, chick peas, soy cheese. Make the salad worth your while. They have wheat salad bowls that hold your salad that you can eat now, too.

Noodles- Again, try to have variations. For instance, my favorites include Cheese Tortellini, Cheese/Spinach Ravioli, Vegetable Lo Mein (Chinese food), Spaghetti (fried with green beans, or cooked with sauce and garlic bread), Cold Noodle Salad (the short fat noodles that look curly, with olives, italian dressing, any vegetable sliced that you like with it such as tomatoes, mushrooms, celery, cucumbers), or simply eat spaghettios, vegetable lasagna, mac and cheese if you consume dairy.

Fruit- Keeping it interesting, try adding fruit to cereal and soy milk, or to soy yogurt and granola. Fruit salads can be an option, but rather expensive.

Sandwiches: Grilled soy cheese, Veggie burger with additional things on it (peppers, lettuce, tomato, hummus or ketchup, relish, pickles).

Two specialty recipes I personally recommend:

Falafels- buy falafel mix (in a box, they taste like hush-puppies, common in canada and middle eastern countries), bake patties in oven or broil in skillet, put them in pita pockets with lettuce, peppers, and hummus.

Raisin Bread Apple Sandwich- It’s like a grilled cheese sandwich except with Raisin cinnamon bread, and on the inside put sliced apples with peanut butter. Alternatively, if you eat eggs, dip the bread in eggs (like French toast) with the sliced apple and peanut butter on the inside. Sounds really weird, but it’s especially delicious with maple syrup.
