Then I'm in trouble because I use lots of convenience foods because I have trouble cooking. I guess I'll have to tell the bishop that I'm working on substituting some soy products for meat dishes but I'll need to know where soy TV dinners, etc. exist.

There's been a lot of discussion about this. My own opinion is that, given speech
patterns of the day, the sentence is parsed better with a comma after "used". In
other words, it *does* restrict meat to only times of winter or hunger. The
phrase "not be used only" is anachronistically late 20th century. Otherwise it
appears to be self-contradictory, unless you're living mostly in times of winter
and hunger. In any case, I don't think it's a big deal, but it certainly isn't a
justification for vegetarianism, as good an idea as vegetarianism may be (but for
others, not me!)
