It's now been a couple of months since I gave up eating animals. I've made a few discoveries in that time that I thought I'd share.
Gelatin is in way more food than you'd think. They just add it to lots of things. Other than gelatin, I haven't found too much hidden animal parts in food.
Mama makes some great instant noodles with no bullion. I really like the Chand flavor. I've found that Cub sells it by the case, which is how I've been buying it.
Morningstar veggie burgers taste better than most beef burgers. Plus they're lower in calories. I would recommend them to anyone.
No McDonald's food is safe, but Burger King has several options.
Campbell's doesn't have a lot of soup options, but Progresso has a bunch of great choices. In fact, soup in general is one thing you have to be wary of. Most have a bullion base.
All in all, I've found I have options just about everywhere I go. That really surprised me. I expected to have to research ahead of time to find places to eat. I really just need to check and see the options the place I end up at has. Even if a place doesn't have any specific offerings, I can just hold the meat on something. I've actually found my diet expanding with the foods I've been discovering.
