I agree. A similar situation has been those soy burgers that Burger King has but I figure they still grill them on the same grills they use for meat, maybe not and maybe there is a way around it but it still seems they could be tainted with beef. I’d definitely think beef flavored ramen would not be correct. Isn’t that basically like beef bullion? You wouldn’t have that either.
Though reading post #2: Now I get it: “Abstinence does not include meat juices and liquid foods made from meat.” Though that same paragraph goes on to say Moral Theologians seem to think we should try totally sustaining. And this IS the Moral Theology section!
And also, if I need protein and since you mention cheese macaroni, cheese seems a fitting substitute for meat to me, cheese is satisfying. At least something I can do 1 time a week. I’m already somewhat of a low meat eater. Eggs are alright.
Are there not even some beefbased drinks out there?? Beefamato like Clamato, Beefamato may be discontinued nowadays.
Whatever! Cheese does it for me, get a big bar of it, mix it with rice or whatever, raw!
But if one has problems keeping up their energy, whatever, I can see some leeway for chicken broth, etc. I would think.
