Sustainable Eating September 21, 2015Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Health & Wellness, Sustainable Living.
Sometimes the something new we choose moo-ves us to greater simplicity and sustainability, saving us time and money.
With a few easy tweaks we can benefit ourselves AND the planet by changing our diet, our buying habits, and even how we vacation.
By way of example:
PLUS going “meatless” is better for our health, our wallets, and for the animals we would otherwise be consuming.
It’s a WIN-WIN-WIN!
When we moved from “meat” to “meatless” (circa 1997), we started small by swapping out the meat in our favorite recipes.
- Instead of chicken curry, we made broccoli curry.
- Instead of beef tacos, we made veggie tacos.
- Instead of lasagna with meat sauce, we made veggie lasagna with broccoli, spinach, and grated carrot.
We found that the food tasted better and we felt better.
AND we saved money by shopping for fresh produce instead of meat.
AND cooking was less messy (without worry about cross contamination).
AND less time consuming ~ I’ve cooked Thanksgiving Dinner in an hour.
