The meat that you eat

(post, Kim Carlson)

Look back five years: Has your diet changed? Are you eating more, or less, meat these days? Have your meat-buying habits changed? What meat do you eat?

Has Mark Bittman, with his book, Food Matters, or others — like Joy Manning and Tara Mataraza Desmond, authors of Marinades, Rubs, Brines, Cures, and Glazes — all of whom are writing about eating less meat, affected you? 

As an aside (and because I love books) here are two more to mention: Tara Austen Weaver's The Butcher and the Vegetarian: One Woman's Romp Through a World of Men, Meat, and Moral Crisis, and Mollie Katzen's Get Cooking, which contains beginners recipes for several meaty recipes (yes, Mollie Katzen of vegetarian cookbook fame).

Tell us about the meat you eat — or the meat you don't.
