If they really do eat meat 5 days a month and fish twice a week that's 13 days a month that have flesh food. The rest of the time they are consuming dairy products. I will bet that they don't throw out any of the pig that they slaughter and therefore are likely consuming its fat most days or using its fat, bones and feet to flavor and thicken foods. So it's likely at meals where a portion of meat is not visible on the plate, there is animal product on the plate. I wouldn't say these people are either vegetarian or vegan and I'd say that this is a perfectly Primal way of eating that you could emulate if you would like to.
