I have always believed that lord Rama was a vegetarian, but after reading the certain blogs I found out that there might be certain verses in Ramayana which indicate quite the opposite.
idaM medhyamidaM svaadu niSTaptamidamagninaa |
evamaaste sa dharmaatmaa siitayaa saha raaghavaH || 2-96-2
Rama, whose mind was devoted to righteousness stayed there with Seetha, saying; "This meat is fresh, this is savoury and roasted in the fire."
Now, since I haven't read the entire Ramayana, I cannot attest to the fact that whether Rama was a vegetarian or non-vegetarian.
Which is why I need to ask, is there some concrete proof that Rama was a meat eater?
