Field roast meatloaf and celebration loaf are $8 at whole foods.
4 servings of 30g protein, delicious. Pick up some organic annie's ketchup or some BBQ sauce to go along with the meatloaf.

These are both wheat gluten as the main ingredient.

I eat this for dinner and for lunch a tofurky sausage. It probably covers half of my protein intake. The other half is powders from trueprotein.com and occasionally vega's sport performance.

I'm making solid gains at the gym, lifting every 2 days and I would say I'm probably getting more protein than I need. The fake meat is not as good as the powder for the muscle, I'd presume, but it is still doing the job.

It feels normal, I guess. You're probably better off with tofu and stuff that isn't trying hard to resemble meat. Less processed, quicker digested, less expensive etc.
