Do you have meat with pretty much every dinner

Obviously vegitarians do not. But I never really thought about it until we were grocery shopping the other day. Every supper that we have -- the main "dish " is a meat... and then we usually have like 2 veggies. What do you usually do for dinner?

  • We hardly ever have meat. I don't like it much, and my stomach can't handle it. I was a vegan for 2 years, and a vegetarian for about 6. Now, the only meat I eat is when I'm about to starve, because it makes me sick. Hubby eats it sometimes, though. I tried steak for the first time a few months ago.

  • Yes, we usually always have a meat as the "main dish" for supper. Chicken, beef or pork. I don't like fish. I wish I did, but I don't. And shell fish is out of the question for me...because I'm allergic. My husband loves shrimp though.

  • We always have meat. I love it. Sear it, fry it, grill it, do whatever, Heat it up and serve it to me. I love food in general.

    We normally have meat, potatoes, and a veggie, sometimes a bread.

  • We eat vegetarian frequently. Hubby still likes his meat, I make it 1 to 2 times a week now.

  • Funny, I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I almost always have meat as the main part of the dinner, but I am thinking I'd like to cut back. Tonight we're having lentils which I am really excited about. I don't think I want to cut it out entirely, but I've been hearing a lot of reports of how agricultural corporations are hurting the environment, and our health. I was thinking if we could cut back it would probably be a good thing.

    ...but on the other hand I am a little worried that I'm being brain washed by NPR.
