How to maintain sustainable nutrition?
Nutrition is the most important part of everyone’s daily life. You should pay attention to your ration and what effect your nutrition has on your lifestyle.
There are several measures that can help you to organize your diet.
Eat only plant food
You can reduce your carbon footprint many times by eliminating all animal foods from your diet. Vegetable food is easier to cook, more affordable, and more nutritious. And you won’t find meat that’s sold in an eco-pack. Switching to a plant diet will make you much healthier and will have a positive impact on the environment.
Avoid unnecessary packaging and choose eco-friendly materials
We can almost completely avoid unnecessary waste through rational choice and sensible behavior. The easiest and most effective steps to reduce waste include using reusable bags and sorting waste for further recycling. You can cut off your coffee take-offs and packaged drinks. This will significantly reduce the amount of discarded packs and disposable cups in the environment. You should choose products with the smallest amount of packaging and the smallest carbon footprint.
Buy local products
Each product has its own carbon footprint. It consists of the distance a product has traveled to the point of sale, the resources spent on its production, and the environmental impact on the industry. You must buy products from local markets or from farmers. When you select a product at the store pay attention to what country this product originated. It is better to buy products that have been produced in or near your country.
Think out your shopping plans and rations in advance. You will avoid unnecessary shopping and waste by planning what you need to buy today and what you don’t. Plan your diet day by day. If you organize your ration that way there will be no unclaimed food in your fridge which means less waste and greenhouse effect in the future.
