In the UK we have the equivalent called "Quorn" and I have to say I love it and it's made life so much easier especially for my children. It's been almost 22 years since I've eaten meat so no I can't actually remember what it tastes like anymore, but my kids love the meat substitutes and at least it gets some goodness into them : )

Ah,what a lovely thing to say, you always make me feel so much better, and it's true because I never imagined being a SAHM could be so tough. I absolutely love what you suggested to say to the woman in the shop, that's fab, actually I may use it later when I'm there as I should raise a few eyebrows as we've had a frost here today and I'm wearing flip flops!! xx

I "borrowed" this idea from my Facebook friend Beki I smiled as I checked out the vital ingredients in her bag as they were uncannily similar to mine, so I think, what the hell is in my bag? So, I... Continue reading
