This veggie thing is an interesting topic. The primary problem with eating less meat is that it takes more time in preparation. My family has found that we feel better and are in general more healthy when we eat less meat. When we start (yet again) on this type of regimen, we do OK for 2 or 3 weeks, and then fall back to our old evil ways!
But it is clear to me that when we take the WoW at its exact wording (as interpreted by me, of course :-) we do gain more blessings. This is a good prompting for me - we shall go back to eating less meat. it's also cheaper! I'll let you know when we are translated. Jon Marc A.

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!) "John W.
