Due to so many things going on with the environment yes we have stopped eating beef and lower pork consumption, Also fish.
we also swapped from white pasta to brown and introduced other things like bulgur wheat... that made with spices herbs is very yummy. Potato consumption changed too... we are now sweet potatoes connoisseurs due to sugar contents of the white potatoes once digested.
I’m a professional baker so I can make most treats and cakes without a problem, we are never short of these lol!
vegetables and pulses were already big on our diets, our meals ALWAYS contain a side salad but our salad portions are now bigger.
we cook from scratch, no take away, once a month if we are lucky, this comes from my parents culture that everything is very fresh and local.
My children don’t really appreciate the frozen food market made meals so phew!... lucky I am that they enjoy variety.
i feel healthier and more content.
Some dishes are now meat free and the kids really enjoy it.
i couldn’t be a total vegetarian 🌱, but we are trying to do the best we can without leaving a big dent in the environment.
we also swapped for hand soap instead of bath and shower gels, we love it and my goodness.... so much more space in the bathroom shelves. Water is carried in refilling water bottles and we no longer buy soda or fizzy drinks. We have a soda stream machine that we enjoy making our own pop.
We make our own washing powder, so easy, and I’m now looking to make my own dishwasher tablets.
I recently learned how to make soap but haven’t put this into action yet.
Next year I want to grow some vegetables in the garden, we used to have an allotment years ago, and really saved us loads. We used to grow crops like onions corn potatoes tomatoes carrots strawberries beans herbs lettuce peppers and many more......then freeze the stock for winter or make jams etc
Every little bit helps to help change the damage that we have caused in the world and I enjoy growing and doing things.
