It's savory, chewy, and releases chemicals in your brain when you eat it. People become vegetarian for many reasons. One may have had a bad experience and got a hold of some bad meatloaf. The next person may have learned that those neatly proportioned packaging involved a lot of ugly work to get it that way. Some name their animals and become attached to Wilbur. For most it a feeling that the balance that meat provides will be lost forever.

"Meat doesn't have a monopoly on protein. In fact, almost all foods (except alcohol and sugar) contain some. A half-cup of beans even has about the same amount of protein as one ounce of meat. To get all of your essential amino acids, focus on eating a variety of protein-packed plants, including lentils, beans, nuts, seeds, and milk (almond works if you're cutting out dairy), recommends Eric C. Sharer, MPH, RD, from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' Vegetarian Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group. Bonus: Vegetarian diets tend to have higher levels of fiber, magnesium, potassium, folate, carotenoids, flavonoids, and vitamins C and E than omnivorous ones."-abcnews.go.com

There is a vegetarian in all of us. Adam and his wife did just fine.You just have to find what you like. Try a local whole foods store and get one thing.
