Last time I introduced to you the 360 degrees energy diet; a chance for everyone worldwide to reduce their own carbon footprint instead of just imposing that it’s the companies who are solely responsible for the input of bad toxins. We addressed category 1 and today I will disclose category 2 namely FOOD.
CATEGORY 2: FOOD
Let’s be realistic and straight up, the production of beef is pretty intense and somewhat proven to be untrustworthy. We strain the environment and the physical environments in which we live due to our global appetite for meat and our unhealthy dietary habits.
- Incorporate a vegetarian mind-set: Create the personal objective to eat a vegetarian meal once a week. Ensure that this becomes a long term and consistent life goal.
- Are you a dining lover? I love to dine out and try new and tasty restaurants. If this sounds like you, imagine how much unnecessary containers are produced so that people like us can comfortably carry our food back home. Instead of this, brown-bag it at least once per week instead of eating take-out or other meals that come in disposable containers.
- Decrease your beef consumption: It might be difficult at first but aim to limit your daily intake of beef to 8 ounces or 240 grams per person. Remember: daily consumption, not per week so it shouldn’t be too difficult.
- Sustainability should be your ability: Be strict with yourself when eating seafood by only consuming seafood that has been sustainably raised and fished. As this is a newish concept, research more about the concept and spread the knowledge.
- Initiative: Take a meaningful stand and try new things; perhaps start your own food-based garden, go vegan for a certain number of days per week, buy grass-fed beef instead of conventional and/or give up at least one processed food that you normally eat.
