What Is Meat?

Meat is considered animal flesh that is eaten for food. Meat is mainly muscle tissue from an animal. These muscles are made of bundles of cells called fibers.

The most popular types of meat include chicken, beef, turkey, lamb, veal, fish, shrimp, lobster and crab.

Animal Meat

To know what meat is, always ask yourself the following questions:

  • Does it have a face and a tail?
  • Was it born or did it hatch from an egg?
  • Does it grow up from out of the Earth from a seed?

If what you’re eating was born from the womb of a female creature or hatched out of an egg, it’s meat. If what you’re eating is not the result of a seed that sprouted up from out of the ground, it’s not meat.

There are many people who claim to be vegetarian but still eat chicken, turkey, fish or seafood.
