I know what chicken tastes like. Whether it is crispy fried, steamed or prepared in a soft curry. It is always yummy.
How do you give up meat when you have a 'chicken tooth'?
At one time I was so obsessed with it I had dreams of me consuming a particular preparation of chicken. I made a decision and I stick to it.
There can be many reasons of giving up meat. One reason is to lose some weight. The world sees more obese people today than ever before. Obesity itself is not a disease but it does set a platform for all the other diseases.
If you plan to grow old in a healthy way and keep all old age diseases away, going vegan is definitely a great way to do it. There are many little changes in lifestyle that will not let you miss your chicken at all. Wheat and soy substitues of chicken are the healthiest ones.
You can buy fake meat made up of soy, wheat and other vegan ingredients. I recently tried this particular type of tofu (what you see in the image) that tasted so much like chicken. It is ideal for some guilty snacking once in a while. I cut it into cubes and fried it. You can also use corn flour paste to cover it before frying. It definitely tastes so much like chicken. It s deep fried but still better than deep fried chicken!
Another change involves switching to organic whole wheat flour for cooking. Making vegetable wraps with this flour gives a chicken like feeling in the mouth. This time it comes from the gluten in the outside cover of the wrap rather than the chicken inside.
It made me believe once again that even though I am a vegetarian, I don't have to miss out on the chickeny-fun.
