I think it means what it says, but the point is that modern-day prophets have defined what the WoW means for us. I'll give you an example. Many people assume it means no caffeine, but if that were the case a good portion of OTC drugs that we take would be verboten. Is decaff okay? No. Clearly we're not to drink coffee or (green/black) tea. That's what it means, not "no caffeine." We tend to get bogged down in unimportant details.
But in any case the phrase you quote doesn't mean vegetarianism, as a vegetarian will eat no meat, not just "eat meat sparingly."
