If you have Netflix, you NEED to watch the series Explained…..more specifically the episode titled “The Future of Meat”…its short, its only 24 minutes long, but the message is so powerful.
This will open your eyes to see what a toll our food consumption is having on the planet as a whole. Seriously there are some shocking facts presented in this documentary. Every single person who eats meat needs to watch this. Even for non meat eaters, the information in this could be applied to how a lot of our food is produced and consumed.
Key points from the episode:
Wanting to incorporate more meatless dishes into your diet doesn’t mean that you need to go all in and become a vegetarian/vegan. You can still have a balance of animal products and plant based choices. Im not sure why but there is this weird stigma surrounding food choices…and ive often been around others who will say “are you not eating meat now?” when someone chooses to order a vegetarian dish at a restaurant, or chooses to put almond milk in their latte instead of cows milk. There is no reason why you can’t do both, and doing so will actually be very beneficial to your health, your wallet, and the earth.
Over the next few weeks, im going to focus on posting recipes, tips, etc on how to include more plant based items into your diet. Stay tuned to my facebook page and Instagram so you don't miss anything!
