This blog is about my experiences living gluten free in San Diego.

I just started using Bob's Red Mill Textured Vegetable Protein ("TVP") as a substitute for meat in a lot of recipes such as in pasta sauce, sloppy joes, tacos etc. and it is great!! It is basically just dried soy protein. You rehydrate it for a few minutes and just add it to whatever you are making. It is fat free and has lots of protein per serving. It doesn't really have a flavor so it just takes on the flavor of whatever you are making. It has a subtle texture that you don't really notice. It is very healthy, easy to use, a great way to add protein to your diet and inexpensive. I bought a bag of it from Whole Foods for under $4 and you can buy it in bulk online for about $3/bag.
