Meat easier to use than plants?

I remember reading somewhere that most animals that eats meat's digestive systems are a lot simpler than those of herbivore's digestive systems, and that it was because meat is easier to break down into energy than plants.

Is there any truth to this, or did I just imagine this little factoid?
