I use meat substitute products infrequently, but there are a few excellent products on the market that I’ve found really enhance what I can produce in the kitchen. Fieldroast is a Seattle-based company that is now distributing their amazing products worldwide. Their Quarter Loaf is a great product for the Esselstyn lifestyle, because it has no fat in the recipe (most of their other products contain added fat). Quarter loaves come in 3 flavors: Smoked Tomato, Wild Mushroom, and Lentil Sage. Each one is a delicious combination of rich flavors and can really add interest to a soup or vegetable dish. Not inexpensive, but potent when sliced or chopped and used sparingly. I buy mine at several stores locally, including Whole Foods and Central Market.
What is happening here? I'm a Seattle native who has adopted a diet of 100% no-oil plant-based nutrition. My guide? Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's book "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease". I've been given an alternative to the chronic illness that has plagued three generations of my family... heart disease, diabetes, stroke. This blog is my personal log of how to cook, what to eat, and where to dine out as a no-fat vegan in the Pacific Northwest.
