With all of the demands in our lives, I really don't think it's pharasaism to eat things that taste kinda like meat. Like I said, I barely eat tofu, even though I think it's good, because it's like injecting estrogen into your veins, which has a lot of negative consequences for a man or woman, and I never eat Seitan (also called "wheat gluten", the stuff that tastes the most like meat), because I don't eat gluten, or many grains, period, but I definitely indulge in other things that are very tasty but fasting foods.
Coconut milk, avocados and nuts dominate my fast, and I'm totally comfortable with that. As I've said before, I have 2+ kids and a wife, business/house to attend to, school work (still, ugh), 2 sports I play and coach, and I'm a workout nut. I try to tone it all down to the extent that is possible during the fast, but based on what my priest tells me, I'll eat whatever feels and tastes good, as long as I'm not breaking guidelines. It reminds me of what/why I'm doing it, and I'm such a carnivore that it's already a big deal for me, and definitely beats down those carnal desires
