Hi Guys

I don´t eat much meat , just sometime actually we have been trying to be vegetarian , trying to eat less meat as possible . To become vegetarian is very difficult because cooking something without animal origin is really hard

Very good. Actually I used to try have a vegetarian healthy diet but it was kind of tough for me. Specially for someone who lives between people who eat meat.

could you explain me the difference between beef and steak ?
thank you

Hi Shiiya,

'beef' is another word for cow meat. It is similar to the word 'pork' (which refers to meat from a pig) and 'mutton' (which refers to meat from a sheep). There is not a special word for the meat of all animals, though -- for example, there is no special word for the meat of a chicken, which we generally just call 'chicken'.

'steak' can refer to other meats from other animals (e.g. pork or even fish), but generally refers to a 'cut' (type) of beef that consists of muscle. This Wikipedia article gives details on several different kinds if you'd like to know more.

All the best,

simple but good

I don´t eat meat very much actually about two times a month due it isn´t health and nowadays is very expensive too we can´t afford it anymore albeit I love barbecue , we have been eaten fish and chicken and I love them .I think I´ve never ever eat lamb , duck and grab . And prawns just only in special occasion due the price is prohibitive

I eat little meat but I like it very much. My favorite meat is steak.

I enjoy all kinds of meat specially sausages; but I think it's not healthy for human kind to eat much meat. In my opinion every strange disease such as cancer and tumors come from meat. Maybe fish is better

I don't eat ham or bacon or sausages, because I'm allergic to pork meat.
I like all others kind of meat.
I don't know any vegetarian.

I m a vegetarian and I never eat meat (non-veg). and I don't like any type of meat.
