Vegetarianism isn't about "vegetarian meat." It's about changing the way you think about food and thinking in terms of meals made of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, etc. Along with that, just because you haven't yet enjoyed vegetables prepared in a way that suits it doesn't mean you never will. I was an adult before I discovered that veggies don't have to be boiled to death; they can be eaten raw, lightly steamed, lightly sautéed in a skillet, roasted in the oven. And veggies I prepared in those ways and seasoned to suit ME (not my parents) were actually GOOD.
My favorite quick supper: Heat a heavy skillet or sauce pan. Add a little oil and some already cooked (not canned, cook your own) chickpeas and some carrot cut up small. Stir frequently. Between stirs, chop up some fresh spinach; make sure you wash the sand off it it's not pre-washed. When the carrot is tender and slightly browned, add the chopped spinach and some garlic. Stir around until the spinach is very lightly cooked. Season to taste and enjoy.
