If you're going vegetarian for health reasons, I sure hope you know what you're doing. If you're not completely committed or you don't have a specific diet planned out to satisfy all your body's nutritional needs you're going to end up horribly weak and sicker than you've ever been.

I've toyed with the idea of completely giving meat up, but I stick with meat for my health. You can live a healthy life as a vegetarian, but holy fuck is it going to be time-consuming and difficult. Personally, I'd say cutting down your meat consumption is a much better idea than completely giving it up if you want to improve your health, but to each their own.
That's complete, total, utter nonsense. It is very easy to eat a complete and healthy vegetarian diet!
I agree. Back in the day, some popular book -- maybe it was Diet for a Small Planet -- made a huge deal out of the need to eat "complementary proteins", but that was disproven years ago.

Not at all.

With the right proportions, it comes out about the same consistency as a really thick marinara which chili should be.
Oh HELLZ no. Your spoon should be able to stand on its own in a bowl of chili!
Yup. Like my grandmother's coffee after she lived a few years in Turkey.
