I also forgot to add that I used that as a guide when I tried the Morningstar farms meal starters (chik'n and steak are both 5g carbs per serving, and are both vegan I think)..
I didn't ask about them, but they fit the general guide, and they weren't really too much different than the vegi burgers we can have.
We can still get Loma Linda products where I am, but they are the canned varieties and the sauce/gravy packages. I live in a very 7th Day Adventist town, so there is a demand for the products. I think Worthington bought them out long ago, though..
I will ask nutrition support about this because I eat quite a bit of the Loma/Wothington foods. Soy from a can, ah, that's livin'!..
If it is 5-6 grams of carbohydrates or less per serving for a soy protein "meat" replacement you can have it on the program. It should be at least 100 calories or so per serving as well...
I've never heard of this stuff (and always looking for new things my gf can eat). What is it exactly and where did you find it? I live in MA.....
You can contact a Seventh day Adventist church. They usually have someone who sells the stuff. There is a lady at my church who sells just about everything including Morning Star and Boca products. She has a little store in her home. You can also go to this site and do a store finder and maybe find one near you.
Good luck. I love their food...
I gave up after 120 mile radius. Safe to say that I don't think there's anywhere around me to find them.....
Heh. I gave up after 30 miles, because I realized it was not like I would actually drive 50 miles to get the stuff.
I know I can get it (or at least used to be able to get it) in Florida - when we visit my mom and my grandma. I usually forget about that company - because it's not anywhere near where I live.
Thanks for the link!.
Hrm. I only just realized I never thought to check out my food buying co-op. We get a HUGE catalogue from them, and they have stuff from all over...I willhave to check it out for next month's order....
Well, I have to apologize for that link I gave on a store finder. I just tried putting in my own zip code and it showed nothing. It's obviously not correct. We have a couple of stores in town who sell Worthington products and also the lady from church has everything. Do any of you have a Fred Meyers or Roth's? They carry a few things at our stores here. Safeway used to, but haven't seen much there for a while now...
I don't have any of those stores. I think I might just be in the wrong part of the country for it...
You can buy Worthington and Loma Linda products online ..
As a lifelong vegetarian, and Seventh Day Adventist, I would honestly recommend giving some of the following items a shot.
Worthington Low Fat Chili.
Worthington Multigrain Cutlets.
Worthington Vegetable Skallops.
Worthington Low Fat Veja-Links.
Worthington Low Fat Fri-Chik **this is so good even my non-vegetarian friends devour it**.
I personally prefer Worthington, but I'd suggest giving them both a try! Also there is a brilliant cookbook available at Adventist books stores (I searched online for it with no result), called "An Apple A Day". It was written by a group of vegetarian housewives. My family has been using those recipes for about 30 years!.
Hope that helps!..
