Bill makes a case for a vegan diet saying it’s better for everyone and the planet. Many vegetarians and meat eaters have been eating veggie burger products as a substitute for meat. Companies like Trader Joe’s has great vegetarian meatballs. They taste great and you can use them as meatballs or make a meat gravy or meatloaf or stuffed peppers, etc. Let your imagination go wild. There are also a variety of non meat cold cuts and non dairy cheeses in most supermarkets. These products taste great. You can make an Italian sub and no one will know it’s not meat! A company I have mentioned before, Beyond Meat, has the most amazing non meat chicken product I have ever tasted. Our Whole Foods uses this product to make a large variety of  foods in the prepared foods area. The Thai Chicken is to die for. These products are not as good as natural grown vegetables and fruits but are far better than eating too much animal protein. Experiment and try different recipes. You will be surprised what you can do with these products and no one will know except you.
