You don't have to go get "weird" ingredients to incorporate some more meatless meals into your lifestyle. Or to make meals with less meat. Most of the recipes people have shared in the recipe section here use pretty easy to find ingredients.
Canned and dried beans, eggs, and dairy products (cottage cheese is particularly high in protein) are all very common ingredients that any small town store should have that can form the basis of a wide range of vegetarian meals. Or meals that still include some meat, but less - like changing up a chili recipe to have less meat and more beans.
