1st- What am I not allowed to eat? I need a list, because I want to go all the way...<br><br><br><br>
2nd- What are the best substitutes and where to find them. I know I haven't looked hard enough and I want to go somewhere where they have these things. Please name common stores and the aisles they would be in. (eg. name the product/the common store[eg. Giant Eagle, Shop and Save]/ and aisle number)<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Please and thank you!

where you are will effect what you can get- this is an international board, but i'll assume you're in america somewhere? try bigger grocery stores, and look for a whole foods, health foods, organic foods, or speciality foods section in the store, when looking for new things to try. also try looking for a healthfood or wholefoods store nearby, using your yellow pages-they'll have loads of stuff.<br><br><br><br>
are you looking for vegetarian foods or vegan foods? if you let us know that, it'll help people offer advice on tasty and suitable products! (no point recommending you soy and rice milk brands if you're eating dairy, or veggie dogs with egg in them, if you've gone vegan).<br><br><br><br>
you'll probably find veggieburgers and tofu sausages and fake meats etc in the chilled section somewhere, possibly next to the salad stuff (thats where they are here) and in the frozen section, or in a section alongside the regular meaty things- you could also ask a store employee if you get really stuck- but in general, i've found that the bigger the store, and the more ethnicially diverse the location, the more cool stuff you'll find.<br><br><br><br>
i'd recommend trying a few new things each week, and not giving up on say... tofu dogs.... if you think one brand of them tastes gross. your tastes will probably change too, most peoples seem to over time, so its worth revisiting something that makes you go 'bleurgh' the first time round, a few months later.

Giant Eagle and Shop n Save suggest you're in the Pennsylvania/Ohio/West Virginia area.<br><br><br><br>
The two Giant Eagle stores in my areas both have organic sections now. That's the place to find tofu, organic cheeses (less likely to have rennet in them), organic boxed cereals, canned beans, Amy's frozen dinners, soy ice cream, organic pasta sauce and pasta, etc. You'll also find Boca products there. Not all the stuff there is vegetarian, though, so check the ingredients. (Both stores have a separate organic freezer section, which is where this stuf is.) In the regular freezer section, there is a selection of Morningstar Farms stuff (most of their stuff is not vegan, but it is vegetarian). The Giant Eagle closest to me has a shelf near the mass-produced breads where a local bakery puts natural (no-preservatives) bread - most of that bread is vegan and it's very good. I don't know if they have this bread at other stores, though.

Omni subs tend to be expensive. I'd recommend learning to make things yourself. Marinaded tofu slices, cooked to brown over high heat, make great sandwitch stackers. The food network (foodtv.com) has a great split pea burger recipe <a href="http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_30859,00.html" target="_blank">http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._30859,00.html</a>.<br><br>
These do tend to fall apart on a grill though, so cook in a pan or use premade garden burgers.<br><br><br><br>
If you must by omni subs, I really like anything made by tofurky, and GardenBurger chipoltle and black bean burgers are really nice.
