I read last week that if there was only one thing we can all do to help reduce global emissions of carbon and methane, it has to do with our food supply/choices/handling:
1. STOP EATING BEEF. All kinds of red meat.
2. DO NOT BUY FOOD THAT YOU CANNOT EAT (as in buying it and then not eating it. It is reported that 40-60% of all food produced by us is thrown away).
3. DO NOT PUT VEGETABLE WASTE INTO THE GARBAGE. Compost it.
4. STOP (or drastically reduce consumption) EATING BEEF
Everything associated with beef production is bad for the planet, so if we all reduce this aspect of our lives, it will result in tangible carbon and methane reductions. I'm still a pessimist about our ability to enact change in our habits, but trying is better than doing nothing.
I bought these and fried them in Worcestershire sauce in a frying pan. NOT BAD! Not hamburgers, but close. I’m not buying burger meat again if I can help it. Close enough is good enough for me.
Red snapper found its way into my stomach this week. FUN!
Chicken, scallops, fish, veggies and fruit make up most of our diet now.
Scallions. Pretty soon they will be coming from my garden. I saw on the label that these perfect scallions came from Mexico. Looks like these are very professionally grown.
I've made it a month or more with no red meat and miss it just slightly. After decades of relying on red meat as a staple in my diet, it's going to take a very long time to walk past the beef displays in the grocery store without longing for my carnivorous past.
