Thanks for the info on prune juice i didn't know that. The internet is great for research on been vegetarian, I am still going strong with no meat and learning lots of new receipes and also loosing on average 1 kilo a week. I nearly gave in the other day my husband came home with prawns and made a prawn cocktail, he said to me "you want some of this don't you?'' I did, i was thinking one little prawn won't matter but then i thought it's the principal of been vegetarian and if i give into one little prawn then chicken will be next.

I posted a recipe yesterday for Lentil Burgers. I made them for dinner and they taste yummy!! One thing I did forget to add in the ingredients list was 2 egg whites to keep the burgers together. The whole mixture made 12 patties at 227kjs/55cals a burger - pretty good and very filling.

Also, there is different variety of vegetarianism. Vegan for instance where you don't eat any animal product whatsoever, I don't know the names of the others but they still eat fish and diary products or white meat such as chicken and turkey and steer clear of red meats.

A word of caution, gradually cut out animal products from you diet because when TOM comes around, you'll probably find yourself wanting to binge on burgers and steak just for the iron intake.

yep I use the Orgran brand "no egg" - it's a powder stuff. I bought a few eggs though for my friend when he came to stay but he never ate them... so I ventured to try them. It's not toooo bad but still find it a bit scary. I'm sure one day I'm going to find a baby chicken in there!! :shock:

Lol Sarah. What are the egg substitutes like? Is it very difficult to cook with? Just thinking of the taste.

I don't think you'll find a little baby chick in the eggs. :lol:

Geez Kate what eggs are you buying?? The shop bought ones (whether organic or not) shouldn't have a rooster anywhere near them!! I used to get the occasional little mishap in our home grown eggs, but we had a rooster.

If it puts your mind at ease Sarah, the shop bought eggs shouldn't have any little unpleasantries in them mate. :wink:

I was a 'lacto-ovo vegetarian' for ages. Which means I still ate dairy and eggs. I've recently added fish and chicken to my diet, for some added protein, 'cos I really wasn't getting enough - I was being a bit lazy to be honest, and chicken is sooo simple.

I grew up on a chicken farm - over 2000 chooks and I refused to eat the eggs off the farm for fear of cracking an egg and finding a chick... Mum did it a few times and it totally put me off. So I used to buy my own eggs (Mum understandably refused to purchase eggs) every couple of weeks! LOL

The food I craved most when I went veg. was bolognaise...mmmmmm.... now I have a reasonable substitue with chicken mince which is yummy - but still....

http://www.vegsoc.org/

This is a good website with information on how animals are slaughtered and different recipes etc. I used it when I was becoming vegetarian again.

I tried being vegan but I only drink milk and eat vegetarian cheese. I don't wear animal products like leather of fur either.
