As someone who only became more health-conscious and more likely to cook for myself over the last few years, I certainly prefer meals with meat. But I almost never cook beef or pork for myself. I generally adhere to the "swims or flies" kind of meat, with a heavy emphasis on the seafood. Not all meats are created equal. A steak has very little in common with some scallops or a nice salmon fillet when it comes to health considerations.

You spend time in a van with people from 1980? Seriously, what kind of a meal costs $5 these days besides Taco Bell?

I couldn't agree more.

I cannot imagine what this is supposed to mean. I eat like a champ.
