If it works for you and you like them-use em. Not for me though-not pure meat it has soy filler added (TVP), sugar, maltodextrin, & MSG. I would just rather quick saute a pork steak.

I think it's a poor choice. Take your day off and pre-cook some home seasoned meats and throw them in the freezer. You can do so much better on your own. Not only is it a poor choice, it's an un-healthy product.

Anything that has "shaped" and "patties" in the description is enough for me to not even touch it with a stick. I don't even need to know what the ingredients are

Progress not perfection.

The Morningstar thingies are all soy protein. Soy protein is really bad for your thyroid and it contains a substance that damages the gut lining allowing proteins to leak through and provoke antibodies.

How about some real meat grilled with a bit of pepper? Cook it when you have time keep in fridge.

I TOTALLY get the speed thing. Planning AHEAD is one way to do it. There's LOTS of great ideas around here for that. KUTGW girl!

If they are going help you stay on plan, eat one once in a while. It won't kill you. Steady diet? Probably not a good idea.

I agree, that's the plan. I want to stay ahead of the idea that I, for some reason, need a candy bar. It's only experimental at this point however.

WOE: Atkins Induction-(esque)
Start Date: Feb 17, 2012
The only thing that I've ever walked up to the counter to return at McDonalds was a "McRib". It made me McRetch, and it's for that reason that any fake pork/rib/thing will never again pass my lips.

So no. I myself wouldn't eat that.
