If you look at the E2 website, you will see that he does use meat substitutes in his cooking, particularly, "meal starter crumbles" which are in a few of his recipes. Additionally, he does also use tempeh, seitan, tofu, etc.
The lasagna he makes in the Engine 2 video is SO GOOD! I have made it twice in the past two weeks. The only thing I did differently than they do in the video is I didn't add corn, I used a little olive oil to brown the mushrooms first, I used fresh garlic (what's up with him using the nasty jar stuff? gross) and I roasted some thin lengthwise slices of eggplant first and used them in placed of some of the noodles. The topping- sliced roma sprinkled with ground cashew is an awesome pizza topping too! I added roasted garlic and fresh basil to the cashews when I ground them. yummm
I have made it many different times and many ways! i usually have most of the ingredients on hand except one or two things and then i just leave them out if i don't have. it always turns out good. i use veggie stock to saute the stuff at the beginning. i haven't tried eggplant--will try! made it without corn this last time since i didn't have any.
Some honey facts-
* 80% natural sugar -- mostly fructose and glucose.
* 18% water. The less water content the honey has, the better the quality of honey.
* 2% minerals, vitamins, pollen and protein.
The vitamins present in honey are B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and certain amino acids. The minerals found in honey include calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc.
I like to avoid all animal protein but there is hardly any protein in honey. Bee's are also insects not animals so I am not sure if they are bad for you like regular animal protein.
