I actually think the best response to both 'why don't you eat meat?' and 'why do you eat meat?' is:
'because I want/don't want to'...
Anyone who needs further justification isn't really worth socialising with.

Why do we eat meat? Because we can! Homo habilis ate meat 1.8 million years ago; Homo erectus invented fire some time in the past million years, making meat more digestible, and the increased protein fuelled the expansion of the human brain into the next stage -- us.
Since the Neolithic revolution, humans have eaten meat as often as they could, which for many of them was very rarely. But only a tiny proportion of all people who have ever lived have opted for a vegetarian diet through choice.
Of course, whether this is sustainable in a world of 7 billion people is another question. But a thought: the technology to "grow" meat in vats rather than slaughtering resource-hungry animals could be developed in short order. Will that be the way of the future in a world of perilous food security?
