With increasing demand for plant-based alternatives to meat and dairy, researchers in the UK are looking for more sustainable alternatives to imported soy beans. They are working to develop a new kind of pea that lacks the typical flavor of peas and could be a more neutral-tasting substitute. “The world has changed,” Claire Domoney, a […]
How should the global agricultural system change in order to prevent the worst impacts of the climate crisis? A group of young activists believe the answer is a global shift towards plant-based diets, and they are not afraid to make their voices heard. The campaigners disrupted a meeting at the UN climate talks in Bonn, Germany, on Friday to call for a Plant Based Treaty.
With more people adopting plant-based diets, it’s not surprising that they might be considering what goes into their pets’ foods too. However, when considering making any dietary changes, animal caretakers need to make sure the unique nutritional needs of their favorite felines and canines are met. For instance, while dogs are considered omnivores, cats are most definitely carnivores.
Whether you’ve been a strict vegan for years or you’re just testing the waters, it can be hard to come up with innovative meals that taste delicious without butter, cheese, or meat. You could certainly scroll through social media or search the depths of Google to find new recipes, but there’s something special about learning in a hands-on way. That’s where cooking classes come in.
Nature consists of chain reactions, many of them complex and far-reaching. In a recent study, published in the journal Nature Food, researchers found that if wealthier countries ate less meat and more vegetables, farmland could be rewilded, leaving it for native plants and trees to grow. And the carbon dioxide reduction from the atmosphere could be huge: 98.3 billion tons by the end of the century, BBC News reported.
A healthier diet. It’s an often abandoned New Year’s resolution and something we don’t think about every day. However, how you eat and what you eat can have a real impact on your carbon footprint. That’s what the climatarian diet is all about, and it’s not a misnomer or a weird fad diet trending on […]
The demand for plant-based meat alternatives has soared as concerns for animal welfare, biodiversity and environmental impact moved to the forefront of global news in the last few decades. A 2021 study published in Nature Food found that animal-based foods account for twice more greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than plant-based foods. Researchers noted that 57% […]
Are you looking for a New Year’s Resolution that will be healthy for both you and the planet? Veganuary is here to support you in trying out a plant-based diet for the first 31 days of 2022, and maybe beyond. “I think that January is the perfect time to try vegan,” Veganuary U.S. Director Wendy […]
It’s common knowledge that meat has an outsized impact on the environment, but a new study finds that the consequences are even more dire than previously thought. The study, published by Nature Research in 2021, determined that meat is responsible for nearly 60% of all food-production-related greenhouse gas emissions, which is 2x more than plant-based […]
