My choice is almost always between "veggie, but milk" and "milk-free but meat" whenever I don't eat at home. And I'm lucky to have Lactaid. (I'm on my last pack by the way, so it truly was a year's supply I brought home.)
I care more about reducing meat intake than eliminating it, and I don't get why that's not the norm. It's much easier to convince two people to halve their meat use than to convince one person to get rid of it entirely.
