How To Practise Sustainable Eating At Breakfast - Dinner

Our food choices have a profound impact on the environment, so it's more important than ever to adopt sustainable eating practices. Sustainable eating is an approach that prioritises the long-term well-being of our planet, our health, and the ethical treatment of animals. But just how do you start eating sustainably?

Richard Smith-Bernal, the founder of Juice Smith, shows how making mindful decisions at every meal can help you make a significant difference.

Breakfast: Start Your Day Right

Breakfast is the foundation of your day, and it's the perfect opportunity to incorporate sustainable food choices. Richard says:

"Consider going for locally sourced eggs, dairy, and whole grains. Seasonal fruits and vegetables can also add a nutritious and eco-friendly touch to your morning meal. Reducing your reliance on processed foods and choosing plant-based options, such as oatmeal or nut-based yoghurt, can contribute to a more sustainable breakfast."

Lunch: Mindful Midday Meals

When it comes to lunch, seek out locally grown produce and support small, sustainable farms. Incorporate more plant-based proteins, such as lentils, beans, or tofu, to reduce your carbon footprint.

"Packing your lunch in reusable containers can also make a significant difference, as it helps to minimise single-use plastics,’ says Richard."

Dinner: A Sustainable Supper

Consider reducing your meat consumption and exploring alternative protein sources and plant-based options for dinner. Richard notes,

"Opt for sustainably raised and locally sourced products when purchasing meat. Incorporate more whole grains, vegetables, and legumes into your meals to create a balanced and eco-friendly plate."

Additionally, supporting local ethical food producers helps to strengthen your community and promote animal welfare.
