I agree with 100% Blu, I cannot understand either, yet I am a veggie.

I would never eat vegitarian sausages, or a pie made from quorn etc, as to me it looks like a sausage, it looks like a pie, so why bother?


Sausage isn't exclusively a meat product, vegetarianism has been around for thousands of years. Never eaten a vegetable pie? Why not? It's like saying you wouldn't eat a curry....

The keys word are balanced diet and it's unfortunate that we are dictated to by the food industry, particularly with vegan diets. You need to have a variety of products that contain all the essential branch chain amino acids required in a balanced diet and soy products are the best souse for a vegan having 6 of the 8 essential amino's, peanuts, grains and a variety of fruit/veg will provide the rest.

Sausage mix is a good source of protein for a vegan and a good base for many dinners, it doesn't have to look like a sausage, it's just what the industry name it.

What about insects and insect products?

Offhand I can think of two insect products I eat fairly regularly.

Insect products often eaten by everyone; that includes YOU.

Try to think — run your cursor over here when you give up: [ (1) Cochineal from which you get the crimson food dye of the same name. (2) Honey ]

Many people are veggie for ethical reasons. I turned veggie because of the cruelty, a friend of mine did because of the environmental damage. We both like the fake meat stuff. Makes perfect sense to us. I do know veggies that just don't like meat though.

I do a pretty strict anti-cancer eating plan, which I write up on my own forum, here's a couple of my fave recipes, previously posted on there .. hope you like them.

Aubergine slices
this is from a book called Vegetarian Express .. it's SO quick and easy to make!

in a shallow bowl mix:
spoon runny honey
spoon balsamic vinegar
spoon soy sauce
spoon sesame seed oil
(they said tablespoon, but it was more than I needed for two aubergines, so a big teaspoon might be enough)


Slice an aubergine in about 1/2 inch slices
dip them in the marinade

put them under the grill, again they said pre-heated but the sauce is prone to burn so I suggest a low heat to ensure the slices go soft.

grill on both sides - just a few minutes each - the slices do soften quite well - but since mine had got a bit too brown a bit too quickly I actually finshed them in the micro!

when nearly ready to serve, sprinkle a few sesame seeds on each slice ..

Their tip was to slap into pitta bread with a bit of hummous, which would obviously be very nice

we had it with pitta and spinach salad:

Spinach Salad

This is a Turkish recipe: Borani Esfanaj

1 finely chopped onion
tbsp ghee
(worth using this - makes the flavour really good but olive oil would do or flax-oil is more anti-cancer!)
4 cloves garlic
small squirt of chilli paste or tabasco sauce or cayenne pepper for a hint of hotness

tsp turmeric
tsp cumin
tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardomom if you have it in

(a good curry powder / garam masala would stand in for this list of spices, tbh! but add extar turmeric

big bag of spinch - washed and roughly chopped

small pot natural yogurt (organic would be best!)


Method
Fry onion in ghee or oil - without browning
Add garlic and fry a bit more
Add spices and fry a bit more
Add spinach and cook until wilted and softened
Add the yogurt - no need to cook that much, just stir in.

Add salt to taste - is good served luke warm or cold.

-------------------------------------

These are two of my favourite dishes just now - kind of BBQ-y and salad-y now the sun IS actually shining!

Thankyou for taking the time to write the recipes, unfortunately I hate aubergines :sad: but I quite fancy the spinach recipe, so I might give that a try :-)

I love hot spicy food, I eat lots of curries, and mexican, veggie of course lol, there is something to be said in being a veggie, as I have so much energy, as I eat lots of protein stuff, plus I do love my veggies, except aubergines lol
I also take a protein drink every day, as I never eat breakfast, or as it happens a proper lunch, specially when I am working, so I have a protein drink and vits in the morning, I have a banana, and an avocado for lunch, or a salad, most times I dont even have lunch, I end up leaving my banana / avocada at work in the clients fridge.
I come home, and I make myself something very nutrutious, I havent eaten chips, roast pots, or even mash for a couple months now, only because I am now cooking for one, and now I can cook what I want.
I have been a veggie for over 20 years, but only the last few months I am eating better, with less distractions, and more time to make what I want to make, and look and feel a 100% better, plus I have lost approx 10-12 pounds, and that is in just eating what I want to eat, no bread, potatoes etc, mind you I still have my 6-8 mugs of tea a day, with 2 good heaped teaspoon of suger, but its not doing me any harm lol
