Moxie--I've never understood the concern about where protein comes from. What do cows eat? Grass. OK, and they're still getting protein and iron and everything we're supposed to get from eating them.

yes - but cows can digest a number of things that people cannot - not to mention the sheer QUANTITY of food cows eat in a day. And - guess what is the most common dietary deficiency in beef and dairy cattle? right! protien!

MMario, if you ate enough potato flour to sustain your weight, you'd be getting enough protein. People need WAY less protein than they think.

And another interesting thing--the countries where people consume the most dairy products are the countries with the highest rate of osteoperosis (sp?). Excess protein (common in the excess dairy countries) leaches calcium from your bones. Protein is not the end-all be-all that people make it out to be.

And it wouldn't surprise me that beef and dairy cattle are deficient in protein--they're eating whatever the heck the cattle industry can throw in front of them for the cheapest amount of money available.

I actually intended my post as a joke--my grandmother is vegan and a registered dietician or nutritionist (whichever one actually has regulation and requires college). Whenever people ask her where she gets protein from, she says, "The same place a cow does." If cows are so protein-deficient, maybe they need to start eating each other.

I haven't had meat in years, beef in over 10, and every time I go donate blood I'm told that I must eat a lot of meat because my "blood sinks like a stone." Yeah, meat, that's the ticket.

ROFL

When did a mushroom deserve stars???????????? We weren't using bad language. All stars were added by the computer program.

I do love the "s**take happens" line, though and will remember it.

Anyone wanting a literal FEAST of yummy sounding vegetarian holiday dishes - go find the current issue of Cooking Light magazine! OMG! There is one whole column called "Inspired Vegetarian" that has a meatless holiday menu, plus I counted several dozen vegetarian dishes in other articles, plus several more dozen that maybe had cheese, eggs, or could be veggie if you subbed vegetable stock for chicken stock, or eliminated the bacon. I had to quit using sticky notes to mark recipes I wanted to try, as there were stickies on every other page. :)
