I was a fat vegetarian : (2007-04-22 22:35:25 by oakelle
Lots of junk food is vegetarian, unfortunately. It's easy to rely on cheese and refined carbohydrates for sustenance and I could go days without eating a vegetable. For the past few years I've been really conscious of eating lots of whole, unprocessed vegetarian foods and the weight has really fallen off (with exercise of course).
Congrats to the OP for considering going vegetarian. It's a very healthy and ethical diet choice!
I really like vegweb.com for recipes. There's a vegetarian forum here:

Food forum may be better suited because2012-09-14 15:57:25 by manx2004
It sounds like this isn't diet based by palate based?
Here you could learn that your taste buds can change :)
On the other hand, you can prepare those things that you currently don't eat in a way that you probably will eat / might even enjoy eating, and that's why food forum may be better suited. Providing the list of foods that you like helps scope your current palate, but you don't say why you like them, or why you dislike the items on your list that you want to eat.
For example, at first I thought you have a preference for bitter - arugula, spinach, sprouts are all bitter

I'm trying to change that. I've only ever had it raw in veggie platters, and I'm not impressed.
However, I bought a small head at the farmers' market yesterday, and I am looking for tasty and healthy ideas to ease me into the cauliflower world :)
Please share your methods and recipes for preparing this humble vegetable!
This is my first attempt at my new personal challenge to try foods I think I don't like (fish, mushrooms, dark leafy greens like kale, and a bunch of other stuff), and perhaps add them into my diet. I was a picky kid, and I thi
Seitan is not soy2009-10-12 09:44:21 by spookilicious
It's also called vital wheat gluten. Basically, it's really, really concentrated bread. Almost like bread dough that's been fermented, so many of the carbs have been eaten up by the yeast and all that's left is the protein. You can make your own seitan, or you can buy it at natural foods stores. One of my favorite seitan products is Field Roast's seitan sausages. They're a little pricey, but totally worth it for how filling, delicious, and easy to use in recipes they are, imo. (Upton's Naturals and White Wave are also good companies to look into if you want to buy pre-made seitan.)
