How often do you eat meat a week?

One of the first things I noticed when I came to the US is that American's tend to eat meat with every meal. We only eat it 2-3x a week for dinner, and pretty much 1-2x a week for breakfast or lunch, examples for me and my toddlers (Hubby is usually the same but he might make him self something else) breakfast: steel cut oats, w/ a little 100% maple syrup, and brown sugar cinnamon, a piece of toast w/ peanut butter, lunch: grilled cheese, tomato soup, and dinner: cobb salad w/ some hard boiled eggs for added protein, veggie and rice noodles with some tofu and stir fry veggies on top, (liquid aminos, healthy version of soy sauce), and dairy and flour brownies for desert,,, this was what we ate today. Whats your favorite veggie recipes? Do you or your husband feel they need meat everyday to feel full?

    I do eat meat everyday. I do not feel I need it or have to have it but I do want it. We also have a lot of meat, more than we can keep up with and I don't have to pay for it so I figure why not eat it. We have cows, pigs, and chickens with our relatives so we have all our own meat. I love making veggies and noodles. My kids are happy to eat a veggie platter for dinner with no carbs or meat.

      We eat meat several times a week. My husband is pretty much a meat and potatoes kind of guy but enjoys pasta and other Italian dishes as well.

      We like a simple tossed salad, sweet potatoes and cinnamon or cabbage salad for veggie dishes.

      I think we would say we feel fuller when meat is a part of our meal, at least for the most part.
