My dad used to scoff at tofu. I think he referred to me as a femi-nazi once even! But...do things ever change! I made tofu lasagna once and it was a hit. Now tofu and other alternatives are on the menu. I very rarely cook beef. The stink lingers for days. Boca ground makes a fine alternative but so are some of the fridge protein loafs. In fact, my signif other prefers it. I wouldn't announce what you are making for dinner if it is vegetarian, just make it and proudly announce or say you are trying out a new recipe and want their thoughts. Habits and preferences can change - Good luck!

The fact is, that to do any thing in this world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in, and scramble as well as we can.

Welcome!! There are so many health reasons to make meat a smaller part of your diet and so many great, tasty and fun ways to do it! :) I have a 12 year old son and husband who don't want anything to do with "vegetarianism" - they seem to think it's a dirty word. But the more I read, the more reasearch I do on health and the food industry, and what all is in what we put in our bodies the more I am sure finding alternatives to meat is the right decision for ME! :) Welcome to the group!

Hi y'all.

I've been working with a life coach recently who is a vegetarian. I told her I tried to go veggie back in HS but it ended horribly and I got terribly sick from becoming anemic! (whoops). In working with her she understands I like and kinda think I need meat in my life. HOWEVER...over the years my body has had a harder time digesting red meat. I have a steak (or shish-ka-bob) just once a month for the iron and just cause it's super yummy IMO. The other meats I eat is ground turkey, tilapia, various seafoods especially in Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine, and chicken on occasion.

Night before last I made the leap and instead of having chicken fried rice I bought tofu vegetarian fried rice and it was SO much better than any of the meat counterparts I've had in the past. I'm known to be a picky eater but I'm really willing to give new foods a try. Hope I'm in the right spot for this. I look forward to getting to know y'all better!

Namaste'.
Tara
