A year ago, you couldn't find me even getting near tempeh (a meat substitute) made with compressed soy, vegetables, or grains. However, just based on this meal I cooked last night, I must admit I am even shocked by my adaptation to an acceptance and actual hunger for vegetarian foods.
This meal is based around grilling tempeh like you would any meat patty, it really looks and smells good. Look at the golden brown texture in the photo.
I then top the tempeh with sour cream, green olives, sunflower seeds, cheddar cheese and green pepper. Add in a small roast of carrots and potatoes, and a pile of spinach and you got yourself one great meal. This plateful is probably pushing two servings of food, and since I do not eat breakfast it tends to result in large helpings for dinner.
I am very interested in immortality and the future well being of our race on this planet. This is why I have chosen to stop eating meat, and even began calorie restrictions (based on the eat less live longer strategy). My next step is to avoid all fluoride, and reduce my sugar intake.
With the world crumbling down around us, it is all the more important to stay healthy, eat right, be aware, learn new skills and face the future with your best efforts. If you are cutting back on spending in 2009, make sure not to cut back on good quality food (organic veggies and fruit)! And if you really want to save money try my philosophy of never buying new.
