Ericka05, I saw an earlier post to added some neat recipes to another newbie, I copied them, so thanks. I have been trying to have at least 2 meatless days a week for a while in my diet. I am slowly just becoming a vegetarian. I am not opposed to eating meat I just prefer to eat fruits and veggies, they make my body feel much better and less bogged down. I am wondering about getting enough proteins. Do you have any problems in this area?

I have tried several different brands of the TVP crumbles and my family can't tell it from hamburger meat as long as you season it. I have also used Quorn chicken style pieces in place of chicken without my kids knowing and they loved it.

Hi Rencal! I'm new to this team too - I have been married to a vegetarian for almost 10 years now, and I constantly struggle with finding recipes to keep him happy and keep me from running out for a fast-food burger every week. SP has GREAT recipes, and every one I have tried by "Chef Meg" has been fantastic! Does your daughter like "fake meat"? Because for a lot of the recipes, you can substitute soy-meat like "Morningstar crumbles" or "Boca" products. I find that to be a nice compromise sometimes. Good luck!

When i saw this spark team I was so excited. My 6 year old daughter does not like meat and i have been struggling to find meals for the whole family that everyone will love. Look forward to the support. Hope to learn about more meatless and healthy living recipes and ideas.
