namastE My Dear Friends: 
While i am waiting for more convincing and authentic responses (supported by scholarly citations etc.) from the learned-seniors, let me share just one of the places i have been looking at which presents the material in a way that seems to be in line with the general orientation of my inner conscience; the URL is - Misconceptions on Vedas - VedicGranth.Org

 namastE praNaams to all the learned-seniors (jnaana-vRddhaas): 
On the question of meat-eating and animal sacrifice purportedly/allegedly sanctioned by the vEdaas, my humble questions are the following: (1) What are those places in the vEdaas if any wherein it advocates/sanctions meat-eating and/or animal-sacrifice-in-yajnaas? (2) In what contexts/scenarios each of such occurrences appear in the vEda-text? (3) Could there possibly be other interpretations, quite different from what may be conveyed through mere word-for-word meanings etc. ? 
The same kind of questions as above may kindly be looked into the acceptance or otherwise of food items like onion/garlic/etc. Also, is it essential to simply go by 'shishTaachaara' ('tradition'?) without checking on possible sanction or otherwise from the vEdaas?
