German Language Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for speakers of German wanting to discuss the finer points of the language and translation. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I tried to translate "einfach" with the dictionary but I couldn't find a proper translation for this sentence:

"Ich lasse Fleisch einfach weg"

The meaning should be (when I eat)"I leave the meat out". But "einfach" doesn't properly fit in here and I don't know how to translate it.

Can somebody help me out?

What did your dictionary offer, where is the issue? What's wrong with "simply"? Please edit your question for reasons why this German to English translation need expertise in German. –  Takkat Mar 16 '14 at 15:27
