    Anyone have a recommendation for a soybean alternative to chicken? There's a vegan Chinese restaurant here that has a great soybean plate, but they refuse to say where they get it from. icon_confused.gif

    I can find it in some Asian supermarkets. Soy chicken, soy beef, soy lamb, soy shrimp, soy pork.
    Some are better than others.

    No I get what you mean. I eat tofu regularly, but I never think about trying to make it taste like meat.


    Are you a vegan or a vegetarian?

    This.
    When I eat meat, I want it to look and taste like the meat it is supposed to be.
    When I eat vegetarian, I want it to look and taste like vegetables.
    Likewise, when I eat dick I want it to look and taste like dick.

    Of all the religions in the world, that's one of the worst. What on earth is possessing you to do such a thing? icon_eek.gif


    Perhaps the biggest tenet of Vegetarianism appeals to him.

    TALKING ABOUT IT INCESSANTLY TO OTHER PEOPLE.

    Not with, TO.

    If you could eat vegetables like Muchmorethanmuscle does..then you're on the right track... I never like or to find it comfortable going Chinese vegetarian all long, You know they have all sort fancy methods they could make out of it. I'm not being racist here but be wise on what you eat since you're in scope of vegg!

    Hmm why not get nuts, peanuts , slice almonds , Seaweed...when it comes to vegetarian I mean real solid vegetarian I would stick more on the Indian side of preparation where with not much artificial like in disguise food as meat.

    Try looking out for Indian vegetarian restaurants they do make pretty good diet when you talk about balance source of protein.With spices they use you cant go wrong where you don't have of its dishes made out of processed Soy or mushroom makeups much.

    I would be a little creeped out if they do not tell me what is in their food. I mean I believe in secrecy but there is a limit. #thelimitdoesexist

    personally.....soy/tofu=gag reflex.....my ancestors went to a lot of trouble to program my dna to hunt down, club to death, roast, and rabidly eat my daily meat, and by god, i ain't gonna disappoint 'em......(sorry i know i got off topic, but the best way to make tofu taste like chicken is to chuck the tofu and eat the chicken.....can't have yer tofu and want chicken, it just ain't right).

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI spent a couple weeks in San Francisco's Chinatown.

    I honestly don't trust eating in their restaurants.


    Well, your loss. Actually I think that the Chinatown restaurants are a little touristy, but in general, you may not know where the food in your local Chinese restaurant comes from, you probably don't know any better from any other restaurant.

    I bought fruit and veggies from their markets because their prices cannot be beat anywhere. But that is about it.


    I didn't enjoy the food I had in china town either. Clairemont in San Diego has great Chinese and asian food in general.

    I don't get this. You're giving up meat. Why would you want to remind yourself of what you can't have any more? Like an ex smoker who hangs around smokers because he's "testing the waters of being a non smoker". It's teasing yourself and not supportive of a challenging lifestyle change.

    I also feel the same about lesbians and dildos, bot that's a different can of worms.

    Why would you want to give up dildos, Medjai?

    Trader Joe's sells "Chik'n Nuggets" and they're delicious. Also, Boca and MorningStar sell a chicken alternative which are very tasty, and high in protein. All are found in the frozen section.

    Like MuchMoreThanMuscle said, they're often made with gluten, which can be tough to digest for some people, or actually causes pretty severe reactions in some people - hence the rise of gluten-free diets and offerings. Take it easy on the first meal and see how your stomach reacts.

    I would really not recommend the non-breaded chicken-alternatives (also sold at Trader Joes.) They're nasty.

    The best vegan chicken that I have had came from Follow Your Heart. But it is difficult to find.

    Field Roast makes some good vegan meats:

    I have not tried this one yet:

    The human body did not evolve with highly processed chemical substances so it gets whacked out when you feed on them. If you want to be healthy eat real food.
