    products.  (from BC, Canada and distributed in the US)  They have several tasty frozen faux meat items.  My favorite is Beefless Tips.  Also, if you have a Buddhist Chinese restaurant nearby you can try several items on the menu - all vegetarian.  Peking Duck is quite a treat - there is even a crispy super thin tofu "skin".

      that promotion of Gardein was the reason I never went to Chrissie Hynde's vegetarian restaurant in Akron until a few months before it closed.

      I don't want fake meat. I don't want to pretend to eat meat. I don't want to eat anything that tastes like meat. I want REAL vegetables!

        fake meat can help with the switch over to being vegetarian. I don't use much because of digestion challenges, but I find it is fun to have occasionally.  We have a vegan restaurant nearby that makes an excellent seitan faux turkey.  I like to serve it with all the trimmings on Thanksgiving.

        Congrats on your zucchini lasting so long.  Ours pooped out in late July.
