National Vegetarian Week: Day 2!

Since it’s National Vegetarian Week I decided today’s post would be highlighting the product that helped me be able too make the transition to being a vegetarian so much easier than I ever thought it could be.

Morning Star Farms.

I’ve written about this before but I became a vegetarian for a few different reasons but what helped me was seeing an old friend of mine, who was a vegetarian, have such an easy time with it! We’d be camping and she’d have some kind of morning star farms product in the fridge and it was so easy for her to use it as a substitute for whatever meat product the rest of her family or friends were eating and sometimes she’d share and it was always SO good. So when I made the final leap into leaving meat behind Morning Star was my go to substitution and sometimes, four years later, it still is!

While I’ve found different products and have become more attached to cooking with fresh products, Morning Star is still in my freezer. Specifically the Bacon Strips. I’ve never been much for breakfast but throw some morning star bacon on the plate with a vegan Big Sur breakfast burrito and it’s the perfect combination.

Above are just some of my favorite products from them. Their veggie burgers are perfect especially for a BBQ or if you just want a burger and fries, I highly recommend their tomato basil burger! They also have a vegan burger, the roasted garlic and quinoa burger is delicious! I used to love Chicken Parm, so when I realized MSF also had a chik’ patty that not only was delicious but the perfect substitute for chicken parm I was so happy.  Also they have a “crumble” which is PERFECT for tacos!! My point with all these examples is that knowing that Morning Star had so many options, delicious options, and wasn’t that expensive made me more confident that I could make the switch and more importantly stick too it.   You don’t have to be a gourmet cook or spend a TON of money in order to be a vegetarian or a vegan for that matter. It just takes a little research, and to be smart about making sure you’re getting all the nutrients you need to stay healthy. I could never ever go back to eating meat, and cutting it out, was one of the best decisions I ever made.

I launched Miss Raee in 2016 purely for a twenty-something girl who is trying to figure it all out, who loves to write and finally decided to share it. I’ve had a hell of a time figuring out what I wanted this blog to be, and I’ve eventually narrowed it down to that I want this blog to be ME, every weird, quirky, loveable aspect of me and even more importantly anyone who also sees themselves as that weird, quirky, loveable person who might love plant-based cooking, multiple fandoms including Star Wars, Supernatural, Greys Anatomy, DC TV, Marvel, The Magicians and SO much more. I found myself being an advocate for mental health, for animals, for the environment, and for equality. I’m a big believer in the vibes you bring, the power of music, and how important the storytelling of books and movies and TV can be. If I’m not on the blog, you can find me sharing selfies and nonsense on Instagram @/amandaraeex3 and live-tweeting and putting in my two cents on twitter at @/amandaraee_x3, so I hope you’ll tag along with me on here and my social media and enjoy all the weird, quirky things we all love.
