    I'm not a vegetarian, but I do love Quorn. Especially the lasagna. :)

    Please define Quorn ? I'm not familiar with the product.

    While I don't do red meat (beef and pork, although I'll succumb to an In-N-Out animal style once a month because my Mom makes me do it) I stick with turkey products mostly (ham and straight) along with chicken occasionally. Lots of salads also.

    Is Quorn a vegetable-based product like soy-burger or tofu? Please illuminate us oldsters who do so much want to be hip and are still trying mightily to be so.

    BTW, I make my lasagna with egg plant cubed and sauteed in olive oil with garlic and onions...mmmmmmm.

    flow....:p

    Thanks, I have read about this before, but the name didn't register. This conversation makes it worth giving it a try.

    This all somehow reminds me of my favorite alternative food movie, Soylent Green .

    flow....:cool:

    Like the "taste" of meat? Try Portabella Mushrooms...you'd swear it was good beef.

    Fish, fowl, red meat, pork. I love it all. But most of it I catch on my own.

    We (at my house) follow a strict guidline for what we eat (except for holidays):rolleyes:

    Starch in the morning, no lunch, flesh and vegetables in the evening (no starch). The flesh part is roughly four ounces a day. The veggies make up a considerable majority of the plate. (since I do most the cooking, I can ensure the diet).

    Hey, we're in our 40s and carry about eight percent body fat. I'd say that is pretty healthy.

    I do appreciate an all vegetarian meal, if there is lots of flavor to it, then I don't miss the flesh, but after awhile, I want to sink my teeth into a juicy steak, or grilled Salmon (chicken is ok).

    First time I ate a portabello I was probably 5 or 6 years sans legged or fowl meats...still ate, still do, fishes, eggs, and cheese...

    I was thouroughly impressed by the flavor of a portabello grilled and eaten with LTO like a burger...floored actually, and until I got some meat eaters to try it and confirm, I thought it must have just been too long since I ate meat...Well that was 15 years ago....and never till today...till your post did I realize the next analogy...

    Beef tastes like fungus.

    I was raised vegetarian. I never tried meat until my late teens. I can tell you it doesn't stunt your growth or have any deleterious effect at all. It's hard to get used to meat. For one thing it's stinky when you cook it. I probably would still be a vegetarian, but one day I discovered bacon...mmmm, bacon. I've learned to like poultry and beef, took a long time before I would eat a steak, but I just can't get used to fish or seafood.

    So....this I had not perceived....MW is a vegetarian? A vegan? I understand the don't eat bacon, religious significance for Jews and Muslims, but I don't eat animals....

    Now I need more info....

    Were you veggie prior to conversion?

    Is your family in Egypt veggie? England?

    What percentage of Muslims would you say are veggie?

    lol for some reason, I didn't picture many Muslims as veggie....be interesting to know why...some latent prejudice??


    Last question, if you order 10 pizzas at any gathering, why is it the carnivores won't let you order more than one veggie?...but when it arrives they say...that looks good, let me get a slice!

    Actually, the crap carbohydrate foods are even more of a rip off because they don't have any value.

    MW doesn't eat meat because any time spent eating meat is time that could be spent eating cake.

    heh heh.:p

    me thinks he was referring to the 'crap' carb...ie potato chips, french fries, doritos, cake, twinkies, etc.
