    We have meat with every meal, but it's mainly chicken. I can't stand anything out of the water so cuts out fish etc, I also don't like pork, ham, lamb, or chicken of the bone. I do like mince based meals but DF isn't a big fan...

    So we have chicken breast 5/4 times a week and steak once a week. I also cook DF lamb once a week while I make a vegi curry..

    DF doesn't get full enough without meat, he's a boilermaker and works long hours..

    Meat is so cheap here, in nz we would pay 22 dollars for 3 chicken breasts, here it's 7!! It's great as its all we eat

    I almost never eat meat at breakfast, on the exception we may have bacon&eggs on occasion, but it is rare. I eat meat at lunch (ham, chicken, turkey,tuna,salmon) usually on a sandwich or in salad daily aswell.

    3, I have chicken 3 nights per week (usually every 2nd night). Sometimes I'll have the odd slice of ham in salads at lunch. Apart from that I don't eat meat very much.

    Every dinner has some meat, either red meat, chicken, pork or seafood. DH wouldn't be happy if I cooked him a vegetarian meal

    Lunches also usually include meat - but not always.

    Breakfast is usually toast.

    Other than mince every other week or so we have only ever really been a chicken/fish household, but I'm suffering a severe iron deficiency, and I am not absorbing nonheme iron quickly enough, so along with heavy duty supplements, we are having lean red meat about 5 nights a week at the moment.

    My mum and dad have eaten meat every night of the week for as long as I can remember, but since developing slightly elevated cholesterol my dad has cut it back to 3 nights.

    I voted 2...that's generally what we average (red meat, chicken or fish). Some days the kids have tuna on their lunch as well but I don't have meat at lunch unless I've gone to a restaurant to eat lunch (not very often).

    We used to be a meat every night family...our diet has changed so much over the years.

    3-6 times a week probably. And often we don't have a large portion of meat - like a 500 gram packet of mince ill split in two & use for two meals and bulk whatever (spag Bol, chilli con carne etc) with grated veg or beans.
