Someone who eats a minimal amount of meat in their diet. Though not vegetarian, a meat minimalist will live on a mostly plant-based diet that is augmented by small amounts of meat. A meat minimalist doesn't restrict eating a specific kind of meat but will eat small amounts of a variety of animals. The goals of a meat minimalist are to reduce the detrimental effects of mass production of meat products on the environment, economy and human/animal health. In addition, meat minimalism helps support small, organic/all natural and sustainable farming practices.
I tried to be a vegetarian but I love many meat dishes; I'm now a meat minimalist and only eat meat once or twice a week. I always try and eat only meat from organic or naturally raised animals.
