Cooking Up Change

Lower impact living

A new era of sustainability is rising, and it’s touching every corner of the world. We are increasingly motivated to be more environmentally conscious and are exercising our power and voice through our choices and daily habits. We have come to finally understand the degenerative way we have been treating our Home, Planet Earth, and are willing to take some action to regenerate it.

Food and us

Food, so central to global culture and identity, can play a role in shaping lives for the better. After all, our diet is inextricably linked to our planet, and our health depends on it.

 

Because food is our medicine, and only a healthy planet can provide us the healthiest food. We are suffering because of the food we are eating and the way this food is being grown and produced – a healthy diet can save us and our planet. At the same time, not wasting food means that more people can secure their food every day.

So what can we do?

  • Buy and eat organic. This is the only way to make sure that the soil, plants and animals are treated fairly, and that we don’t consume any chemical or pesticide residues
  • Even better, buy and eat food which has been grown with regenerative farming, which promotes ecosystems restoration and biodiversity
  • Shop local and seasonal, trying to minimize the environmental footprint of food by selecting options that have “traveled” less
  • Check the refrigerator before shopping and plan ahead: buy groceries mindfully, only when we need the food and after we have consumed the stored one, so that we minimize the waste we create.
  • Start a more plant-based diet, and incorporate more plants and herbs in our daily habits, as they have far less environmental footprint
  • Buy food that has no packaging, or at least minimum packaging, preferably recycled, recyclable or biodegradable, in an effort to minimize single-use plastics
  • Use veggie scraps to make vegetable broth. Just boil potato skins, carrot ends, broccoli stalks etc. and we have a cheap, healthy, additive-free soup base
  • Use our eyes and nose before throwing away food – too much confusion on sell by and best by dates leads to lots of unneeded waste
  • Be ok with imperfection – no plant or fruit needs to be perfect to be delicious!
  • Compost
  • Freeze food
  • Grow our own food: we can easily plant lots of herbs and fruits to use them in our recipes or as beverage and tea
