hummus is made from chick peas or garbanzo beans whatever you want to call them. It is perhaps one of the easiest things to make, with very few ingredients, and you can make vats of it at a a time. Incredibly cheap to make, but as Jared said expensive to buy. All you need is a food processor (cuisinart, I know ben hates to advertise)
Timion[/color]]We just don't want to be eating big meat all of the time. We'll still eat fish and chicken, but rarely pork or beef. We're just trying to stay healthy.
True. I don't want me & Matt to get cancers and hearts disease. I also want us to live for a long time. So, I cook vegetarian most of the time. I make fish and chicken about once a week each though.
For protein, be sure to eat lots of beans and sprouts. Tofu is good too... if you want the tofu to have more of a meat-like texture, buy the firm kind- freeze it and thaw it. I can't explain why that makes it better... it just does. Never forget to press all the water out of the tofu as well.
oh, and you should eat lots of edamame (steamed, salted soybeans still in their pods) yummy
Congratulations to you! When you eat fewer animal products, after time, you'll feel so much better
