It is important that our diet is not only healthy, but that its impact is minimal. Here you have some advices:
- Base your diet on vegetal products, reducing consumption of animal origin. The production of animal food is responsible for 51% of greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, you will have less risk of certain diseases.
- Plan the shopping cart and buy food that you will consume. If you have food left over, freeze it. It reduces the production of waste (your food footprint).
- Buy seasonal and local product, preferably on foot. This lowers costs and respects life cycles (fish and seafood, especially). On the other hand, by buying from local suppliers you will be contributing positively to your social environment, favoring the economic development of your Community.
- Avoid superfluous containers, buy in bulk and preferably choose those products that make responsible use of the packaging (Dow Jones is a sustainability index of sustaintability in big companies).
- Cook your own dishes whenever possible. In addition, maintaining the tradition and culinary identity of your area is another form of sustainability, since traditional recipes are based on local and seasonal produce.
