Transform your meals, transform the planet: learn how to practice sustainable eating from breakfast to 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 prioritizes 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 yogurt, 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 minimize 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.
