- eat local: buy food from your local organic farmers market or go for products labelled as coming from your country, rather than having been imported. This reduces carbon emissions from long transport routes and supports local farmers and therefore your local community.
- eat seasonal: eat what is in season. Seasonal foods are higher in nutrients than those that are eaten out of season....Wait for your summer-strawberries, rather than buying imported ones in winter. It's worth it.
- limit your consumption of meat: most people eat far more meat than is good for them. The meat-industry contributes to global-warming by the emission of methane-gasses on a large scale and is linked to deforestation to make way for massive cattle-farms. Large-scale industrial production of meat has lead to appalling animal-welfare standards.
- reduce your intake of processed foods: eat home cooked, fresh meals and your body will thank you.
- respect your food: because you truly are what you eat. Be thankful for the food you eat.
