En España "carne" es todo tipo de carne, especificando: carne roja (de los mamíferos y la de caza, aunque sean aves) y carne blanca (la de aves y la del conejo). La carne del cerdo y del cordero, cuando son lechales, se considera carne blanca; cuando son adultos se considera roja. El pescado no se considera carne.

Los católicos, durante la Cuaresma, no podemos comer carne los viernes (ni ternera, ni cordero, ni aves, ni conejo, ni cerdo, etc.). Pero sí podemos comer pescado y huevos (jamón tampoco). Bueno, eso los que sigan la Cuaresma, pero eso es otro cantar.

Los vegetarianos no comen carne, pero algunos sí comen pescado alguna vez por la necesidad de proteínas (hay muchos tipos de vegetarianismo).

Nice!, that's the way I like to be use the "carne" term. (¿el término carne?)

(pero las proteínas no solo están en la carne y eso de que no se pueden reemplazar es un mito creado para perpetuar la industria, esta comprobado que se lo puede hacer, solo que requiere más esfuerzo que el que una persona estaría dispuesta a hacer sino tiene algún motivo firme. Con esfuerzo me refiero a ser constante y hacer un hábito de ciertas conductas que hay que adoptar y que puede no ser facil.)

I think "term" is good

What happens if you go to a doctor and he tells you that you can only eat meat once a week? If you think that chicken or rabbit are not meat and you eat them everyday, that's not good for your health

Sometimes, language is more important than we're able to think

Well to tell you the truth, it is a well known fact that red meat is not that good for you so if the doctor says you can eat it only once a week then you need to clarify. I have worked in the medical field for a long time and when the doctor says no meat, he really means no beef.

All in all, I can tell you that there is no comparison to a good T-bone steak with buttered mushrooms, sauteed onions w/jalapeño peppers, a glass of wine and some garlic bread...................once a year.....


mmmm, mmmm, mmmm,mmmm

Usually I'm a bit anemic and doctors tell me to eat meat, but they specify and say "carne roja" (here it is said "ternera") and liver . If they told me to eat meat, carne, I'd eat chicken or rabbit, maybe I wouldn't eat ternera (young caw).

En España "ternera" es carne de vaca sin importar la edad, ¿no?

Aquí las vacas se sacrifican muy jóvenes, de menos de un año, por eso se llama "ternera", porque no ha llegado a ser vaca. Aquí no nos gusta la carne de animales viejos. En Cataluña, donde yo vivo, se sacrifican aún más jóvenes, siete u ocho meses.

Claro, "ternera" porque es "más tierna". Aquí también todo es carne de ternera. (how can I say ternera in English?)

Ternera/o means calf = veal.
