I thought I would do another recipe hub, but do a receipe for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have found that going meatless is not as hard as I thought it would be. Some substitions are good, but other taste pretty blah. I must admit the only meat product I kind of miss are my hot dogs, yes my Oscar Meyer beef hot dogs. I have tried different veggie, and vegan hot dogs, but I am still trying out what I can find. I do not claim to have to be a strict vegetarian because I do eat eggs, I understand some do not. If anyone have any tips on making great veggie dogs please give me a tip on how to prepare them. It is interesting that I find myself eating less than what I did before. At first I was using eggplant for a lot of meals, can I tell you that became old very quick. Still learning how to mix it up in the kitchen (lol). My real goal is to later down the road become a vegan, I like that little engine in that respect (I think I can, I think I can) well you get the ideal.
