How Often Do You Eat Meat Alternatives?

I have been trying to eat lower on the food chain and have been cooking more meat free meals. There is a wide variety of meat alternatives out there to chose from, like tofu to veggie burgers, from seitan, to tofu pups. They're all great sources of protein and they're usually low in fat, calories and cholesterol free.

So I was wondering about you . . .

I don't understand why it's MORE gross to eat a patty made from the protein in beans, soybeans, vegetables, grains, etc. than it is to consume a patty or link made from the muscle and connective tissue of killed cows and/or pigs...?

i'm vegan but never ate much meat growing up so only eat tofu every other week or so. i don't like things that taste and look like meat, so really can't stand those "burger" things and fake hot dogs...?! eww!

Basically only when I visit my dad and stepmom (because they're vegetarian), even though they make meat dishes for littlest sister I feel bad having them make it for me too. Besides I don't mind although I do prefer when it's vegetarian meals without the meat substitutes.

I agree with another poster, they are still processed, packaged food. I have really made an effort to not eat any processed foods, so this stuff is out. I'll make my own black bean burgers, thanks.

I eat tofu all the time, but I don't really consider it to be a meat alternative. I usually eat it WITH meat. I very rarely eat things that are meant to look and taste like meat...that's just weird to me. I don't have a problem eating tofu as tofu and just veggies.

I had to add that we very rarely eat beef (like 3-4 times a year) and went without it for 2+ years completely. We wanted burgers once, though, and there was no place close to get organic beef. So, we got veggie burgers, cooked them, and then piled on cheese and bacon! There seemed something really wrong about a bacon veggie burger, but it was SO good. (Processed pork products are one of my weaknesses. I heart bacon!)

When I make tacos or chili, I use the Boca crumbles instead of fatty ground beef in it. I swear that no one can tell the difference between that and real meat!

i got in trouble a couple of years ago from eating too many soy-based meat alternatives. the phytoestrogens threw my hormone balance out of wack, and it landed me in the hospital. yikes! i do love the stuff, though.

I'm a vegan, but I've found ways to make all these alternatives yummy for everyone :) I don't judge if people eat meat, but it's nice to make a dish that I can share with everyone.

Although I don't buy them, I'll eat it if it's offered. My dad's GF is a vegan, so often times I'll get it at his house. She has a favorite restaurant here where all the meat is a soy based sub, so if we all go there I'll eat that too. I don't mind it, but I'd rather eat tofu teriyaki or something if I'm out. I really don't eat a whole lot of meat lately anyhow. Like others said - I don't exactly quantify my tofu consumption in the category of a meat substitute. My tofu isn't trying to be's very firm in it's own identity thankyouverymuch.

I am addicted to the Morningstar Breakfast Sausage Patties. I have a box at work and just pop one in the micro for 45 secs for a low cal/high protein snack or to go along with my morning oatmeal.

I will be having tofu tonight. My girl friend and her husband are coming over and she is a vegetarian. I think the baked tofu sound good.

Pretty often...I'm a huge fan of veggie burgers. Morningstar Farms is probably my favorite. I love their veggie bites too. SO good.
