ExcerptThe ancients did it, Einstein recommended it, and David Suzuki supports it. The trend of eating less meat is centuries old, but for many North Americans it is a new trend and way of life. Every year more and more people move toward a healthier, plant-based diet. There is no doubt that the earth and its inhabitants fare better when meat is not a priority at dinner (or at lunch or breakfast, for that matter). And yet for some body types, it is not medically advisable to eliminate meat completely; responsible consumption of small amounts of organic beef, lamb, chicken, and fish may be beneficial for them. What we see evolving is a flexible way of thinking about food, cooking it, and serving it to family and friends.
