I said it before, I don't like nuts and when all was said and done, the sauce tasted too nutty for me.  I think there is a great chance that people less picky than me would love it.  Also discovered I don't like turnips.  There is still sooo many things I can eat though that it isn't a worry.  I have one more "experiment" recipe, but outside of that, I think I'll stick with the tried and true.

I totally don't miss meat at all.  I am really amazed.  Fish and seafood on the other hand....  I may go for pescatarian after all (where the only meat you eat is fish and seafood).  It isn't like I ate much to begin with.  Seafood has always been a special treat because I usually can't justify the cost.  I like to stretch my food dollars.  We'll see.

Don't drink and craftster.

Check out this website, it has a lot of information on beginning vegetarianism:


Also, you will get a lot of comments about "where are you going to get your protein??" but that's actually not the biggest concern, expecially if you aren't going vegan.  More importantly are things like b12 and iron.  If I don't get enough b vitamins I start to feel really run down.    Here is a helpful relevant website for that:  http://vegetarian.about.com/od/healthnutrition/f/Vegnutrition.htm

hey so I'm not going totally vegetarian but I am trying to do vegetarian or close to it during the week. I'm trying to eat healthy so during the week I'm doing no meat, cheese, caffeine, booze, and very limited amounts of bread. I'm trying to only eat twice a day. I eat some fruit and sometimes whole wheat pita with hummus after my workout. I've been doing just frozen veggies steamed up with some rice for lunch/dinner. I still like meat & cheese and stuff a lot but only allow myself to eat it on my weekend. anyway any ideas for healthy tasty stuff to cook when I start to get bored with the rice & frozen mixed veggies? I don't like mushrooms, raisins, squashlike veggies, tofu, or cauliflower. Oh and I don't have an oven either just a 2 burner stove top. also I've had aparagus out and liked it but I don't really know how to prepare it for myself. any ideas?

You could spice up the steamed veggies a bit: Try peanut sauce, tomato sauce, make a curry, stir-fry them, eat them with pasta, potatoes, quinoa or couscous instead of rice, try different veggies each time ...
Salads are also quick and easy to make (To make them more filling, add nuts or seeds, or try pasta salad, couscous, etc.). 
Veggie soups (Leek& potato, cream of broccoli, lentil, etc.) are a good idea as well.
There are also different kinds of veggie burgers (if you dont like tofu there are alternatives like seitan), falafel, which you can eat with or without bread ...
I think Ive been eating more than ever since I became a vegetarian (and even more since Ive been starting to go vegan), just because there is so much great food that i didnt even think of trying as an omnivore :-).
