Genesis 9:3 BDC: Did God permit the eating of meat or only plants?

After the creation of Adam, God informed him, “And God went on to say, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.” (Gen 1:29) However, meat was not on the human diet. Therefore, some are confused by God’s words to Noah after he came out of the ark, “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.” (Gen. 9:3) Is this a contradiction of God’s earlier command to Adam?
