I eat hardly any grains. Most of my daily meals are large portions of steamed vegetables and I usually have some kind of fresh fruit breakfast (or vegetable juice when I'm half-fasting). About every six days I have some kind of fresh meat, which is usually salmon. The only grain I eat is brown rice, save for the rare time I eat other grains. I stay away from gluten. I eat a lot of raw nuts and seeds. Occassionally I eat legumes, which is usually a meal of mung beans and brown rice, with spices. I don't eat dairy, refined foods (Sugar, flour, etc), processed foods except naturally fermented things, chemical additives, eggs, conventionally raised meat, red meat except buffalo, duck, or lamb on occassion. I don't eat pork or luncheon meats. I think that's it.

sure, meat is not a requirement in the diet, the only requirement with regard to meat is that it is not conventionally raised (hormones, antibiotics, etc) and that it is not eaten in large portions. Oh yea and that it is not luncheon meat or any of those other weird meat items, beef jerky.
The reason I eat far less meat than I could is because I live in an urban environment (you need to constantly support your liver and detoxifying systems in urban environments), and also because I won't settle for substandard meat. I'd rather have quality over quantity. I also eat meat because I believe it is good for my body.
