A little film by Dr John McDougall about the dangers of too much soy protein ... this is also valid as a lot of our bibian cane that soy without thinking twice and screw up their hormone profiles too.

Geezers watch out for soya, I heard it makes you generate estrogen.

Just discovered Linda McCartney's Vegetarian Sausages.

Seems to be mainly made from rehydrated wheat protein (84%) i.e. not soya.

Macros look good :

Per 2 sausages

Carbs - 7.6g

Fat - 8.1g

Protein - 20.7g

Edit: Just ate them, tasted a bit dry but that might have been because I overcooked them slightly?

I've always found Linda McCartneys food dry. Try them with some veggie gravy. They used to have some pies, that had gravy in them, not sure if they still do them.

(I can assume the topic would be locked if I asked this), but how would this compare to the sausage of an animal, I tried some veggie Sausages and they tasted awful. (Surprisingly pork sausage had less grams of protein with 18 grams).

Proper sausages taste 100 x better than vege fake ones. In terms of macros, it depends on the meat sausage quality i.e. Blackfarmer Premium Sausages (the lowest carb ones I have ever seen) have:

(per 100g i.e. 1 and a half sausages)

Carbs: 1g

Fat: 19.7g

Protein: 14.8g

Compared to Linda McCartney's:

(per 100g)

Carbs: 8.3g

Fat: 8.8g

Protein: 22.5

if you have a fan oven I would suggest cutting down time drastically otherwise it's like eating wood...I usually do them for ten minutes and they are good , most of the excessive fat gets shed but the moisture is still all there. Usually add to pasta sauce that I have been creating on the hob while they are doing their thing in the oven. mushroom and sausage stroganoff is popular in our house .

What do you have for breakfast sis?

I think that is hardest job. To make a tasty, high protein vege breakfast.

Most people want to eat something tasty first thing. Having something grim tasting just makes mornings even more grim for non-morning people.

honestly most people don't eat in our house , so it becomes like an intermittent fast effect ...eating first meal at midday...I eat around eleven usually 0% greek yoghurt with fresh fruit and linwoods 'Goji and seed blend' with a a little honey and OJ (fresh squeezed) or a berry smoothie no dairy with banana and spirulina and greens powder.

Or even slicing up four five oranges and just getting in the citrus ...very good for breaking down mucus in the system thus aiding bodies work

could do savoury yoghurt with cucumber, spinach , ground cumin, chilli , maybe with precooked lentils thrown in salt to taste ,

last night's gobi sabji sandwiches in seeded batch then grilled ( or paneer/carrots-peas sabji)

besan pancakes with chillis ,onions,spinach, tomatoes, cubes of feta cooked with cocnut oil (add a little bicarb to make it fluffy)

flaxsseed pancakes with pansauteed mushrooms and spinach salt and pepper (chilli if you like it hot)

    • Not even sarson da saag?
    • Yeah they can taste a bit chemically sometimes. When I was on my health mission, I used to eat a spoon of raw jeera and taniya powder with warm water! I see what you mean about fresh taniya but the powder is used to add an earthy flavour and taaja is used for that fresh flavour. And we don't use ice cream dabaa, margarine de dabbe. Lolll Sorry I wasn't clear. The lightly frying and storing in the fridge wasn't for turka, just extra adkar for later. We use frozen for turka. Hmm lets have a cook off and see who wins! Haha it's a real word! Like unparh.
    • Oh yes, my grandma used to do that too. But I’m not a saag fan😐 palak I don’t mind. 
    • Yep we do that one too. But instead of the jeera powder, I prefer the fresh jeera. Gone off the powder, it has a weird taste. And thania powder aswell, seems different, so fresh thania is best, because at least you’ll know it’s fresh. Chop it up and put in the freezer with the adrak and mircha. But don’t put it in the ice cream dabaa 😛 Frozen works just as good.  Lol golden brown isn’t kacha. Because as you’re cooking the rest of the ingredients by adding them it will carry on cooking. Otherwise it gets quickly burnt after adding the haldi, fer siapa hojanda, if you don’t catch it in time.    An-turki lol, new word for the vocabulary. It’s very simple to make and quick too. 
    • People always get confused by this. Saag infact can be made out of various greens. If you look at recipes of "saag" in other parts of India, they use all sorts. Bibi used to make saag solely out of sprouts at one time! Practically beadbi lol. JKV is old, taste buds probably knackered.
