I'm guessing that you didn't go to Bahrain *just* to get bacon, but that you were thrilled (?) to see a can of the stuff.Personally, I wouldn't make a tremendous effort to buy meat or poultry when I could buy substitutes instead (Peking vegetarian roast duck tastes good), but--finding meat substitutes in the Middle East might not be easy(?)SRS
I absolutely did NOT go to Bahrain to eat bacon. I went to see an old friend, who was a dean at NYIT there. Now he's moved to a branch in UAE. I don't remember seeing any meat substitutes in Kuwait, but there may have been some. As someone allergic to soy, I avoid that stuff like the plague. I'll take bacon over hives any day!
I have the "I'm going to Bahrain to eat bacon" emails, you know. I never delete anything.e
Allergic to soy? That’s too bad. I’m not a vegetarian—I actually mix meat, poultry, and seafood with meat substitutes in stir-fry dishes--but the veggie burgers can taste good by themselves.If you like mushrooms, those are certainly good eating, and good for you (see, e.g., http://www.christopherhobbs.com/website/library/articles/article_files/mushrooms_med_02.html I eat shiitake mushrooms routinely, and credit my soy- and mushroom-heavy diet in part for my ability to burn more than 3,000 calories a day at age 50.SRS
E: you never exaggerate anything eiher...
