In my quest for cutting meat outta my diet, I found something called "I can't believe it's not beef"...they also have chicken..it's totally awesome! They are strips of textured soy "beef" marinated in a ginger garlic sauce. Just add to fresh veggies and stir-fry...it's 1 pt per serving, and if you cut the strips in half or in thirds, there seems like way more. It looks like beef, and feels like beef strips...I didn't tell my BF right way, but he thought it was really beef...I know he was skeptical though because I never cook meat or beef...but it's really good. I'm going to try the chicken this week. I found mine at Kroger, if you have one in your area...

Default Thank You!

I am also cutting beef and eventually all animal products out of my diet. I will have to look for this.

I called Wild Oats and they carry about 20 different products from Lean Life. I will pick some up this weekend.

Default Hey, Anne!

This is where I 'met' you!

I hope you can find it! I can't find it anywhere except for that one store.

There is something you might find called Soyawise...it's dehydrated textured soy pieces, so you just soak it in water for a few minutes before you cook, then add it to a stirfry and it takes over the flavor
of whatever you're cooking it in. I haven't tried it yet, but I have some at home..I'll let you know
when I do!

PS- maybe you can go to a search engine and type in "I can't believe it's not beef" and maybe
something will come up. I wish I could remember the brand!

Default more almost "beef"

I've also heard great things about the Lightlife products although they're not yet available here (Canada). I've heard they're coming soon though. If you're looking for other great products there's a company called Yves, it's a Canadian company but I think the products are available in some places in the US. I think their website is www.yvesveggie.com They have hot dogs and deli slices but my favourite product is their Just Like Ground. It's great to substitute for ground beef. I've used it in sauces, lasagna, tacos etc. I love it!!
