Closed to the meat.

So, in an effort to do something about my cholesterol I'm thinking about how to reduce my meat, dairy and egg intake as much as I can. To this end:

Dear Lazyweb,

Where is a good place for a life-long carnivore to find a gentle introduction to meat-free/vegan cooking?

Thanks!

Adam.

Any thoughts, suggestions, etc. would be much appreciated.
So speaking as a committed carnivore married to a mostly vegetarian, its possible to replace mince and chicken pieces in things like curry and spag bol with quorn with only a fairly minimal taste deficit, not as good, but filling and passable with a good sauce.

Also fish is good. Eat lots of fish, hang the environment and the fake factory fish farming and eat it two or three times a week if poss. That keeps the protein levels high but cuts out the worst of the seriously bad fats in red meat. Roast it, grill it, shallow fry if you have to, curry it and bake it into pie! Many good things can be done with fish.

Not that my diet has resulted in a terribly sleek outline, so feel free to ignore this post if you like ;]
Quorn doesn't seem to be readily available over here, and has eggs in it, but i'm thinking that finding a protein in sauce substitute may be key.

Fish we already eat fairly often, and that will likely be what little animal protein I do eat, I reckon. We shall see how it goes. :)
