Have any of you tried this Textured Vegetable Protien stuff? I've tried veggie-burgers before and thought they were about a half step away from a rice cake. I see this stuff advertised on the survival web-sites but I'd just as soon go for the canned meats. Stepped-init

I'll admit that I don't mind it. Like thedave indicated, it's not as spongy if "cut" with beef. Light, quick, and easy. There are beginning to surface warnings about "overconsumption" of soy products due to the presence of estrogen-like compounds. Evidence suggests that they may be good for women in menopause, and for those recovering from heart surgery, but, I wonder if too much of these can begin to cause feminization. No great evidence to suggest this, though, and some evidence to dismiss this.
