In our household it's about 3-4 times a week. I'm interested to know what other folks do.

Around 2-3 times a week. More if we're feeling the pinch.

On average around half the week. DD loves beans and pulses.

Proper vegetarian that I could serve to a vegetarian -= hardly ever. I tend to use a lot of meaty stock cubes.

We eat lots of pasta with tomato and basil sauce.

almost never. In a week we usually have one meal based on bacon or ham (eg pizza, panhaggetty or similar), maybe one fish, maybe a pie, and the rest would be mince, chops, gammon, roast etc.

We eat a lot of veg with it - but always meat of some kind.

Totally veggie, 2-3 times, but I don't use that much meat. I tend to use it for flavour with veg/pulses as the filler.

We have an official veggie night on Thursdays - it's when our veg box arrives

We started doing this when a town near us (Ghent in Belgium) started an initiative to encourage all their citizens to eat veggie every Thursday - and we thought it was a terrific idea and adopted it.

So at least once a week

But we may eat veggie without really thinking about it on 2 other nights too (pasta and veg dishes - soups etc)

OmicronPersei8 Mon 28-Sep-09 18:47:10

3-5 times a week

Other way round - we generally have meat once a week.

ShutUpandDrinkYourGin Mon 28-Sep-09 19:08:14

average 1/2 days of proper vegetarian, but we eat more fish than meat on the other days

Only about once a week - if that - I'll do a veggie pasta meal, although I often eat veggie when we go out as I don't really like eating cheap meat

2-3 times a week. We are having mushroom risotto tonight.

About 2/3rds of my meals are veggie - probably more if I thought about it. We have lots of veggie means and Dh and the dcs often have fish which I don't eat so when they do, I just have the veg.

2-3 times a week. Sundays roast haunts for a few days and then we have some veggies days to recover grin

3 times at least. I can't eat meat every night, it's too much for my tummy.

mollyroger Tue 29-Sep-09 08:23:03

me every luinchtime
As a couple, dh and I eat around 3 meat free meals a week.
my children eat maybe 1 meat-free meal in a deacde. blush They eat fish around twice a week.

My dh would think the end of the world had arrived if I made something vegetarian. He is a northern bastard and northern men eat meat. (or so he tells me). DD would starve if she didn't have fish or meat too.

Probably about twice a week fully vegetarian. A couple of other meals will be mostly beans / pulses with a bit of ham or chorizo for flavour, so not a great slab of meat. Plus fish a couple of times a week too.

5-6x per week (but DH is veggie and I aren't that fussed about meat anyway!)
