    I kind of like this idea. I dig my meat-based meals, but I know I could use a reminder to get a bit more creative and experimental with veg prep. Glad OP made the suggestion!

      We do this at least one time per week, personally sometimes twice. The egg consumption takes the place of meat, along with more liquid or broth based recipes. So like protein shake and nuts for lunch then s huge omelet for dinner. Or a really hearty soup. I am a believer in different forms of IF though and giving your digestive system pause to refocus energy elsewhere in the body

        I eat plenty of meat but also try to do this once or twice a week. I don't think it's a bad idea to vary your intake away from meat once in a while. I usually have a bean/legume heavy meal on those nights. I actually enjoy these meals and find them easier to digest than the pound of meat I frequently have with a dinner.

          A day without meat is like a day without sunshine.

            Regularly ... several times a week.

            Lunches will be meat-free, something like cottage cheese and a couple of boiled eggs filling in for protein; Dinners, root vegetables and an eggs on top, perhaps egg and re-fried potato wedges from cooled baked potatoes, Cauli Cheese, that sort of thing.

            We're mostly fish eaters anyway, so meat is very irregular ... but that's still flesh.

              Aye, that's me every day.
              No one will suffer meat deficiency over 24-48 hours if the diet is otherwise solid. Though my preference would be a simple fast since big vegetarian meals leave me off balance.

                I sort of go with what I think is the general spirit of the hunger/gatherer food timing clock, as described by Cordain ...

                Skip morning breakfast and have a light lunch around noon. Leaves (salad), light protein, something fatty (like an avocado, maybe some olives) and almost nothing carb and certainly a couple of eggs. Dinner is then the main meal. Dinners without meat (or fish) do tend to be on the carb side for us, then back to meat (well, fish) and good fats.

                I do have a breakfast mid/late morning at the weekends, but it's often just a simple fish. I know that's not a meat-free meal, but I was just clarifying those pictures of fish for breakfast on my blog.
