we always talk about sustainability and how to make our lives more sustainable on our blogs. whether it is brushing your teeth or having your food, every aspect of our life can be reinvented to be a little more sustainable and conscious in our journey of living responsibly.
here are a few ways that you can create a healthier and more sustainable relationship with your food:
Check the ingredients on your packaged food
when you start researching these ingredients, you will want to reduce the amount of junk that you eat.
local and homegrown is the path to sustainable
once you want to reduce packaged food, you would want to find local, seasonal and fresh foods. most of us are too caught up in the idea of superfoods, like avocado. but we also don’t know that increased demand of avocados has created an unsustainable supply chain including overextraction of water, destruction of forests and so on. we already have apples, mangoes, oranges and bananas, so why go after avocados and blueberries.
so, yes you can have a more sustainable relationship with your food, whether you are vegan or not. you can make adjustments so that you can treat your body right.
