my SIL and son are vegans.For a quick dinner maybe you would like to try indivisual pizza. We took the gluten free grain or wheat torillas type flat breads ( if you can have gluten any torillas, flatbreads, or english muffins will work.) and put some tomatoe sauce on them (Can add little garlic to sauce if you want ) add what ever veggies you want then some cheese of your choice and bake at about 400 until cheese is melted. also we make cheese enchillads. put tomato sauce in a saucepan add some chilli powder, salt and heat then put some in a casserole container put a layer of corn torrillas over the sauce add shredded cheese, more sauce then torillas and cheese then slices of olives, bake till all is melted and browned a little. Also black beans and rice with salsa. We also like lentils made with vegan bouillon salt and papper to taste. Beans soups are great especcially in this cold weather. I also like their vegan bacon that is just heated and served. Great for BLTs. Have you also tried their vegan chicken patties that are in the frozen section by the bacon, There is no meat in any of it. The best brand ismorning star. I lsoi like there black bean patties to put in a torilla with mild salsa and cheese heat in the micro wave. Also chilli is good to make just leave out the meat. Ravonda Just be creative, I am also a diabetic and have watch what I eat and amounts. Good lucl to you and hope you get better. Ravonda
Take a look at this site. http://www.worthingtonfoods.com/
Loma Linda products have been around forever and even though the meat substitute products really don't taste like meat, they can taste good if you don't look at them as a "meat".
The site has all kinds of recipes you can use with their products. You will get all the protien you need from these products.
also in the fridge section by the cheeses usually they have vegan hot dogs. We like kraut dogs vegan chilli dogs or just hot dogs had some friends who had a hard time with the kids eating introduced the dogs and they love them. sweet potato fries out of the oven are great for a side.
Sorry, not able to help you. As far as I'm concerned it there is no meat at a meal there was no meal !! I don't even do cereal for breakfast unless I have meat to go with it.
