By meat-substitute, I mean something that is intended to look or even taste like meat, without being meat, such as Quorn.
Being a Vegetarian, people constantly ask me "Why would you eat something that looks/tastes like meat, I don't see the point?"
To me, I eat things like Quorn because I like the taste, not because it's meant to replicate meat, though this answer rarely satisfies the person asking the question. So I wondered why others might eat meat like food.
Why would a Vegetarian/Vegan eat something intended to replicate meat?
