Being a dready vegetarian :P
Dreads and Diets
Loads of italian cooking/tomato based sauces you can just leave the meat out and they're still fabulous! I live near Tillamook so still do *some* dairy, I just limit it because my stomach doesn't like it. I love eggplant parmesan or lasagna that uses zucchini/eggplant instead of the noodles. Homemade black bean burgers. Stir fries, tofu fried rice. Vegetarian chili. Curries, wraps with different veggies and sprouts, quinoa pilaf in veg. broth and toss in steamed or sauteed vegetables. Some days fruit smoothies with almond or coconut milk is better for convenience, or just a salad. It can be hard to do with a roommate or family that eats differently but can definitely be done with some planning!
