Meat alternatives
I am a confirmed carnivore, but I know I need to reform my ways.
I know I eat WAY TO MUCH animal protein.
So, I have a question for my vegetarian and Vegan friends.
Which “protein substutes” have you tried, and which do you like?

And I warn you right now, if you say “Tofu”?
I will stop reading.
Tried it, hated it, moving on! Tongue

I'm not vegan, but it's lent. So red beans and rice, or roasted soy butter(as a peanut butter substitute) are two things I'll eat that are vegetarian.
And I know tofu, yuck. However, mashed up and mixed with a little mustard and mayo, it makes a nice egg salad substitute.

RE: Meat alternatives
I use the Morningstar Farms meat substitutes. There's another brand that I've been trying out called "Gardein" (I think that's the name), and also another brand that seems to work for us, (though spendier) is Quorn.

TOFU!!!!!!

There you go! Tillamook grilled cheese, with a hint of sharp cheddar in there and a slice of tomato (which is how my grandma made it)

Oh its lent again, I almost forgot. Doesn't that make fish not a meat? I forget how all that works, I mean it seems pretty meaty to me, but I guess its not considered a meat. Yesterday, on Ash Wednesday, I had Cream of Wheat for breakfast, and egg sandwich for lunch, and blueberry pancakes for dinner. Is eggs okay? It seems a lot less meaty than fish anyway. But really, it was a coincidence, I'm not very religious, and don't really follow all those rules. But you never know, there may be a place in Heaven for me after all, at least until Friday comes.

Time for McDonalds to ramp up those double fish filet commercials.

Depending on your church, eggs, dairy, and seafood are ok. For Catholics, they are ok, and most christian churches.. as far as I know.
Some Orthodox christians don't eat any "animal" products during Lent, except fish. Some don't even do that, and are totally vegan. Does that help?

Sure! It’s interesting to learn how that works exactly, it describes the culture of a lot of people. Although I still wonder about the seafood. What do you know, on Wednesday I was in full compliance. So far so good today, I had Apple Cream of Wheat for breakfast, and a baked potato for lunch. But I feel I will be doomed later, as there is a Gino’s East sausage pizza in the fridge calling my name. I can learn to resist, anything but…sausage pizza.

You said earlier that you had a peanut butter substitute, is peanut butter verboten too?
