        But you are right in that they are really trying to put their health first.
        I never understood that fake food stuff. So much tasty veg and so many tasty ways to eat it. If you want to eat only veg then eat only veg but if you are missing meat that much that you are eating veggie burgers and dogs then ffs grab a side of bison and dig in.
        Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

          Oh my god, yes; I see you're in Edmonton, I imagine you're familiar with Padmanadi? It's a vegetarian restaurant and I've heard so many people raving about it - finally, a vegetarian friend invited me and I figured it'd be a great opportunity to try some cool vegetable dishes and find some inspiration to cook vegetables at home. Imagine my disappointment when I saw a menu that was 90% fake meat. Of course, despite everyone saying "OMG, this GMO soy butter "chicken" tastes JUST like the real thing," all of that stuff tastes completely fake, and only someone who hasn't touched real meat in a decade could honestly think that this soy junk tastes anything like actual meat.

            Awful isn't it...are you an Edmontonian too...seems there are a few of us here. I am fairly new hear so don't know that restaurant and it sounds like I don't want to.
            I do enjoy a good curry and have eaten at Narayanni's they are big on their vegan dishes but always have 3-4 chicken and lamb dishes. I skip the pulses but the rest of the vegie dishes are to die for and the lamb is pastured and hormone free.
