Why don't monks/saints eat meat?
#3
Don't forget that for most of history meat was a luxury. The average person was lucky to have meat once a week or once a month. People typically lived on grains, legumes, nuts, and (depending on location) fish. Today, meat is so widely available and is cheaper than a lot of foods especially nuts and fish. For modern people fish is more a luxury than meat.
Blood of Christ, relief of the burdened, save us.

“It is my design to die in the brew house; let ale be placed in my mouth when I am expiring, that when the choirs of angels come, they may say, “Be God propitious to this drinker.” – St. Columbanus, A.D. 612
