How much meat does a non-meat eater need?

I don't enjoy eating meat, but I am worried about getting enough b12. I eat b12 enriched nutritional yeast a few times a week, but I don't know if that's really enough.

I am not currently vegetarian (I have been in the past), but I am very picky about eating meat and fish. If I see veins, get a piece of cartilage, or dislike the texture, I can't eat it. Eggs also gross me out, with the random blood spots and the stringy bit that looks like an umbilical cord, but I can handle them if I don't see them raw.
Is it possible to get enough b12 from eating, say, a chicken breast once a week? And maybe an egg? Or is it something that you should have every day?
