It’s thinking critically about where you food comes from, and changing the way you eat where required. Often beef and dairy consumption is limited, due to the significant carbon footprint the cattle industry leaves on the planet. Meat, in general, demands more resources like water, fuel and land (and contributes to deforestation and loss of biodiversity) than plant-based foods.
A climatarian diet involves more plant-based meals, or low-carbon meats like organic free-range chicken and sustainably sourced seafood. Along with being better for the planet, it’s good for your health too; switching out red meat in favour of plant-based proteins like nuts, tofu and lentils may reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke.
