Being home doesn't necessarily mean having more time! I'm working from home, longer hours than ever. And I have 18 cats to care for -- most indoors, some outdoors -- which takes A LOT of time, and I'd rather spend my time caring for and enjoying them than standing over a stove. I guess that's how I nourish my soul! Maybe I'd feel differently if I had children. I actually enjoy vegan "fast food."

This makes me happy! A Vegan Grocer? And 20 Vegan eateries? I am also sure there is something other than meat on the menus of standard menus.

I am not a vegan - or a vegetarian even, since I eat fish very occasionally for personal health reasons. I will only eat wild caught fish or sea food. I really try to avoid dairy, for a multitude of reasons both health and ethical.

Meat analogs back in 1989, when I stopped eating meat, poultry and fish, were scarce and barely palatable.

Today, they are delicious!

So many people are responding to the demand for easy to prepare meat free foods.

I just read that Purdue, is launching a chicken free product.
Same with Kentucky Fried Chicken has done the same.

Do you think that's because Perdue and KFC are becoming enlightened?

Nah. They're only in it for the money. There is obvious public demand.

Don't be so quick to judge! I HATE fast food. I don't really like Burger King's version of The Impossible Burger. It's much better made at home. If I am on an interstate, driving for hours, it's good to know it's there.

Why do you assume that all of these foods are tossed in the microwave? That just isn't so. Many creative cooks use them as the basis for recipes. Beyond Beef can be used in recipes ranging from meat loaf, tacos, enchiladas, stuffed peppers, Italian meat balls, Swedish Meatballs, and a variety of casseroles.

I have used Quorn plain "chicken" filets to make Chicken Dijon, Chicken Parm, Chicken with white wine and Tarragon, Chicken Salad and MORE.

I PREFER Tofurkey Ham to the real thing. We only have it on holidays because that's when it's sold.

Why are you assuming that people who cook with meat are not eating processed foods?

In my social circle, very few people eat a Standard American Diet.

ETA - people "baking more" is hardly a good thing. Sugar is a dangerous food.

Lol, I posted the same thing four months ago in this thread.

No one things saturated fat is good for you. https://www.heart.org/en/healthy-liv...saturated-fats
That's not entirely correct. While saturated fat is mainly found in animal foods, there are a few plant foods that are also high in saturated fats, such as coconut, coconut oil, palm oil, and palm kernel oil.

The whole idea of eating a plant based "meat" is ridiculous. You never hear a meat eating person wants to eat a broccoli made of bacon.

I don't care if you eat for environment nor political reasons, eating a highly processed and designed food makes the whole plant eating diet a joke.

Newsflash for you, Einstein: plant-based meats such as Beyond Burger and Impossible Burger are specifically marketed toward meat eaters. And if you try really hard to use some of that big brain of yours, you'd realize - - - just as the developers and managers of those companies do - - - that they'd soon go out of business if they had to rely solely on vegans and vegetarians to buy their products.

And finally: frankly, nobody cares what you think is ridiculous or a joke. In fact, coming to a vegetarian and vegan food forum to complain about vegetarian and vegan food items has to land pretty damn high on the ridiculous scale.

Our meat is plant based... we feed our cows, pigs and chickens plants and vegetables.

Not much of a meat eater who wants a plant based substitute sounds like someone who eats Thai but only dares to eat Pad Thai.

It's just a fad nothing else. Let's see they try replace that Ribeye steak with a pea based protein.

Quit seasoning your meat with plants then, and eat it just as it is. You know, salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, etc etc etc that is used to make meat palatable?
