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?



Any thoughts, suggestions, etc. would be much appreciated.
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. :)
