For the record, I like meat.
I believe the anti-meat stuff is overhyped.
I'm actually a charter member of the go-eat-what-you-want society. Just don't make a big deal of it.
I appreciate social trends that would lead to making meat less the star attraction of the dish. I think it tastes better and is better for you when the meat plays a supporting role or is occasionally omitted.
And, as for "kosher" (now this is for fun); I always thought it refered to what jewish husbands snuck off to the corner deli for, after pretending to enjoy dinner.
