I think it's not as simple as that. At all times in our development we had to adapt to our surroundings and thus our environment had as much an influence on our development as ourselves.
The fact that we settled meant that our food sources became much less varied. And because of that lack of variation meat became more important in our diet and we started a selection process that prefers people who like meat more. Not because we wanted, but because we had to. So it's more than just a habit or a choice. Some people will struggle to refrain from eating meat.
