How often do you eat meat with your meal?

Do you have to have meat with every meal? Is it just a clutter of side-dishes without some meat, or do you skip the meat every so often? Perhaps you’re a vegetarian, and know a meal can be a knockout without animal flesh?

Take this poll to vote

We have fish at least once a week, the same with pasta. For us it's cyclical, we tend to eat more meat when it's cold. Having said that, I am a carnivor at heart.

We're carnivores at heart, too. That said, we eat at least one meatless meal a week. It is NOT, however, "a whole bunch of sides!" There are many tasty and attractive meatless main dishes!

I consider fish "meat," and we eat quite a lot of it.

Sure you do! You can vote the last option in the poll - “YUK! I never eat meat!”

Also carnivores at heart, but we go meatless as well. About every two weeks or so. We also consider fish a meat.

But you know, my lunches are 50/50. Some days a sandwich with meat, other days a big bowl of pasta!

We eat meat but not always with every meal,or eat something that does not have alot of meat like beans.I love brown rice with some vegies and make a meal out of that.I guess it depends on the mood.Im not big on meat in a salad.

Hmmm, let me see, keltin. When it comes to eating meat at breakfast for Buck and me, that only happens on Sunday. That's the one day I prepare a nicer breakfast, so we may have bacon, sausage, etc.

Lunchtime during the week is usually composed of leftovers from the night before. If no leftovers, then we may have soup (dry with added water) in the colder months, or tuna or egg salad or lunch meat or hot dogs out of the freezer when the weather's warm. Don't usually have lunch on Saturday or Sunday.

I plan our evening mean menus several months in advance and schedule a regular rotation of poultry, pork/ham/sausage, fish, beef, lamb, and meatless entrees. With the entrees I usually prepare two sides, which could be a fruit or veggie and some sort of starch or pasta. We don't always have dessert.

One meat meal per day. If ya count fish which averages 3 to 4 times per week.
