Eco Eating

One of the little pamphlets that arrived in one of my professional newsletters this week was about eating a diet with a low environmental impact. The authors state that sustainable diets are those which contribute to food and nutrition security and to healthy life for present and future generations. Basically, a healthy diet and an ecologically friendly diet has quite a lot in common:

“Eat greener, not too much, and be active” is the take-home message.

So….putting this into practice it means less processed/junk food and more fruit, veg, and grains. Furthermore, reducing food waste and packaging where possible.

I also like this website that is part of a movement towards less plastic:
