I love both, that's tough but right now i'd say I also prefer veggie's over meat. I am pregnant and the meat has been making me have some terrible nausea. I don't really notice a difference in my energy but i'm sure it's there!!!

Vegetables for me. I am trying to be meat-less, yet can't be called a vegetarian. But it doesn't hurt if I eat vegetable cooked with some meat. That is why I could not be a vegetarian. There are just a lot of animal based products that is also full of nutrients and besides they make vegetable dishes taste richer.

Yes, I eat vegetables. In every meal in the house we try to have 1 veggie dish either stew, saute or soup veggie dish, fresh veggie salad is rarely served only on special occasions. My family is not vegetarian, my father in fact is a 'carnivore' than omnivore. But everyone else in the house eats more serving of veggies and fruits than meat. We have a space at the back of the house where my granny grows some crops and green leafy veggies like malunggay, probably the most common filipino veggie, we cooked it as soup dish together with squash or pumpkin and eggplant. When we cooked veggie, we either mix pieces of meat to taste or just pure veggies. Veggie is a good for the health, it keeps us away from high blood pressure.

i'll definately be on the veggies side , i love to eat them and i feel that they are more healthy. For many years , the decision to follow a vegetarin diet was regarded as a noble biut deprived existence at best , and cranky at worst. as the no. of vegetarians has grown and the range of food available has become wider , it has become clear that most vegetarians enjoy their food a great deal and what is more important is that their are possibly more health benefits associated to it.Perhaps the most obviuos benefit of vegetarian eating is reduced risk of coronary heart disease . Vegatarians tends to have lower levels of LDL Cholestrol (the bad stuff), reduced clottingfactors , lower BP, and a lower incidence of diabetes. these reduced risk are because vegetarians diets usually have lower saturated fat content, higher fibre content, lower salt content, more antioxidants vitamins, more complex carbohydrates and fewer simple sugars. Cancer risk may also lower with a vegetarian diet , particularly cancer of the colon. so , be a vegetarian and advise others to be a vegetarian.
