Welcome!

I've been a vegetarian (90% vegan) for about 2 years now. Once I got over the first couple of weeks it became very easy. I love trying new recipe's. You will be surprised how many different meals you can prepare. I am rooting for you!

Smile it makes you feel better. : )

Welcome! I don't use a lot of soy in my diet, but love legumes - kidney beans, lentils, garbanzo beans, black beans, pintos, etc. You can do so many things with them - soups, salads, chili, Indian and Mexican food, etc. They're a great source of protein. Good luck with your new lifestyle! emoticon

Welcome. We have lots of recipes on our blog but they are vegan and we are vegans and not vegetarians. Jeremy

Welcome to the team! Your reasons for eliminating meat from your diet are similar to mine - I read too much about slaughter houses and decided I didn't want the animals being killed for me. I could live without it. It is occasionally inconvenient, but not nearly as much now as when I first started this 26 years ago. There are so many more choices now. I do use soy products, but I recently shopped at a Whole Foods grocery store and they had all kinds of vegan products. If you can find one of those stores maybe that would help. Hopefully there are others on this team who also avoid soy who can give you better advice than I can.
Good luck!

Hey all! Well I'm kind of new to spark people and I'm VERY new to the vegetarian life style, still crossing over. Even though I'm 30 it has just really hit me that I don't want to eat most meat. It's purely for an animal rights reason. I have a problem with how animals are slaughtered and how detached society is with food and where it came from.

My new lifestyle however has proposed a great challenge. I don't want to incorporate soy. I am coping with infertility and am against using soy as it increases estrogen levels.

I'm looking forward to fun new recipes and will take any advice you want to throw my way about cooking with less meat without adding soy!

Thanks! And it's great to meet you!
