You don't have to give up the tastes and textures you love in order to become a vegetarian. There are now products like Gardein and Beyond Meat that fool chefs in taste tests. And even if you really don't think you can give up meat completely, you can still make changes. It doesn't have to be all or nothing. More and more Americans are becoming “flexitarians.” Participating in Meatless Mondays, using soy crumbles instead of ground beef in tacos or chili, getting Trader Joe's Meatless Meatballs, switching from cow milk to almond milk... all of those choices make a big difference, even if you're not 100% vegetarian or vegan.
