Grain Meat

Soy is all too common a source of protein for vegetarians. So, when I saw this at the Locali store, I had to try it out:
In these Field Roast Smoked Tomato deli slices, the main ingredient is wheat gluten, not soy. Three slices have 110 calories, 13 grams of protein, and only 3 grams of fat, none of which is trans or saturated fat.
After my long Sunday morning run, I made an open-face sandwich with three slices of Field Roast deli slices, avocado, lettuce, and tomato slices. 280 calories and very filling!
