I don't think it's just a mental thing that you feel better. Some foods work for others and some don't, that's just one of the many things that makes us individuals
I still eat red meat if someone serves it when I'm away, but I haven't actually bought and cooked it myself for a year now and I don't miss it at all. I still eat chicken and fish, mainly salmon, but I have tried a few vegetarian recipes lately. There are four of them I actually really liked. I'm not going to post entire recipes here since it's hard with conversions of measurements and such, but I can tell you what it's supposed to be in it. I do skip some things since I either don't eat them or don't use them normally so I don't bother to buy it, but it still turns out good. Bean Stew
Red bell pepper
Red or green jalapeno
Green or red jalapeno
Olive- or rapeseed oil
Creme fraicheIndian lentil stew
Garam masala (I didn't have it so I picked some of the individual spices and mixed myself. What I used was cumin, cardamom, grated ginger, black pepper, cinnamon and bay leaf)
Turmeric (for color only)
Yogurt (for cooking)
Serve with riceRoot vegetable gratin
(I added cauliflower last time just to try it and it was delicious!)
Cook the vegetables for ca 3 minutes before adding them to the form.
Grated cheese (mix most of it into the vegetables, save just a little for topping)
Cream (light for cooking)
If anyone wants entire recipes I could try and help with that, but remember that the recipes are in Swedish, so if you use other measurements than liters and gram I can't promise it will be 100% correct. Anyway, I hope this can be some inspiration ^^
