    Uhmm..nah. If there is meat made for me I'll eat it or if I'm cooking with someone who knows how to handle meat. I don't cook a lot of meat at home though. I think I'm a bad cook and I get scared I'll cook the meat raw....but my parents have been teaching me so I'm feeling better about it.

    my grandparents were vegan because of religion but I didn't really understand as a kid. I could probably go vegan but I won't be those vegans that always go out to restaurants or buy those packaged products. blah.

    I was strict vegetarian for 7 years. It started with a big reduction in meats and dairy for several years following a physical that resulted in a shockingly high cholesterol reading. I then learned of a family predisposition to high cholesterol, and made big changes to my diet to get things back in line. After 4-5 years of having occasional meat/dairy, I went full vegetarian with restricted dairy (not full vegan). After some time, I totally lost any desire to eat meat.
    I've come back around a little, to what I feel is a balanced relationship with food, and eat meat now, but I am very choosy. I like to know where my meat comes from, so to the extent possible, stick with smaller, local, natural meat sources (grass fed beed, pastured chicken) or from wild animals that friends have hunted. I've also participated in processing a few fresh road kill deer. I'm taking up the stick and string (longbow) after several years away from it, and hope to get into next year's deer and elk bow season as a noob bow hunter.
    I don't eat much seafood, particularly shellfish. I love raw salmon and ahi, though I have discontinued eating ahi as it is currently overfished.

    So, I'm no longer vegetarian, but can understand the reasons why people choose to go that way.

    Good one. I actually have two salad shooters in different sizes - they're great.

    You just need to know what you're doing, ordinary everyday cooking is easy,
    and there are lots of shortcuts.

    Get an old Joy of Cooking (at least 10 years old) and read the Know Your Ingredients section
    before you start to cook. That's it.

    I'm pretty much vegearian. No dairy either.
    Have been for over 3 years. Health reasons primarily. No human societies have ever been totally vegetarian, but the healthiest have used very little meat.

    I don't think absolute abstention would be necessary, but 40+ years of damage by the standard american diet has taken it's toll.

    I have cut way down on the red meat in the last year or so. The realization that it may have been the cause of decades of indigestion was quite the epiphany.

    was vegan for just over a year. felt absolutely great. lapsed back into eating meat for convenience. vegan is very difficult if you don't make your own food every meal. did it for health reasons and i still love the smell and taste of meat.

    trying to head back to vegan and have cut down meat to just when I eat out.

    orange lentil soup, I've never cooked with red lentils before.

    I've had a bag of red lentils (not really red, more orange) for a long time.
    So I pulled them out, and went rummaging in the fridge for a ham hock.
    No ham hock.

    So I have some organic bacon, so we'll use that.

    I throw a carton of veggie stock into a crock pot.

    Rinse the lentils, and throw them in. Then I cut up a bunch of
    carrots, and in they go.

    I'm going to cook up some bacon, and finely chop it.
    http://culinaryarts.about.com/od/bre...y/ht/bacon.htm

    Campells has a new orange cherry tomato soup that I like a lot.
    I know I'm supposed to snear at them, but I really like some of their
    new stuff. That will go in about 1/2 hour before serving.

    I need to cook some onions, and throw them. Thing with onions, is
    that you can get decent results with 5 or 10 minutes in the fry pan.
    But to do it right you need to do it for 20 or 30 minutes. Ignore any
    cook book that says otherwise, they're lying. Not that I do it often.

    I'm trying to decide on the spicing. I am leaning towards simple today,
    a bit of garlic, dash of Worcesterhire, bay leaf.

    I rather like the idea of orange lentil soup.

    If we weren't meant to eat animals, god wouldn't have made them outta meat.

    (Says the atheist.)

    I actually don't eat much meat, compared to the average USian diet, but I'm not going to give it up altogether, or pass on the occasional steak.

    Vegetarian meat taste the best!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I requested General Tso's Tofu from a local Asian restaurant after having it at a different restaurant. The woman taking my order looked at me as though she didn't understand my request. I said the Tofu (TVP - Textured Vegetable Protein) was like mock chicken and I preferred it. In her best angry asian female voice, she yells at me "No Fake Chicken Here! We use REAL chicken!"

    Pretty sure I remember it as a 72oz steak. 4-1/2 lbs. Looks like a Flintstones-size cut of meat.

    I've been a vegetarian for about 25 years now. I'm not much of a recipe person. I just cook things and add as much hot sauce and spices as I feel like. I do have a single recipe that is sort of a health food twist to popcorn, at a messy popcorn recipe.

    I enjoy it for breakfast and have probably had a bit more than a batch a day for several months now. It isn't quite a recipe, more a general guide with the ingredients, but it's the food I've enjoyed most, ever. It just suits my style and I've gotten slick with the East Indian spices I use in it.

    Tofu is a completely different food from textured vegetable protein. They are both made from soy beans but that's about all they have in common.

    LOL. If you're ever in So. Florida try this restaurant - they have an extensive menu for vegetarians which is excellent http://www.pinegardenchinese.com/menu.html

    The Vegi Meat & Seafood Entrees ("beef" is wheat gluten, Soy Chicken, Seafood (potato flour). All casseroles are made with chinese cabbage, soy bean threads. The Pork in garlic sauce is shredded soy protein. The other restaurant I go to has a limited menu but still good. I like the Soy chicken, Sesame Soy Chicken or Soy Beef with Vegetables.
