10 food rules to live by
Want to make a difference for the environment? Rethink your kitchen.
Great tips! Though I would add:
1. Once a week? Weak.
2. Yup, however, if you’re serious about conserving energy, you might also want to consider a “rocket stove” - http://www.rocketstove.org/.
3. Eggs are very contractive and not advisable for daily use, so consider whole grains and legumes, among other foods, as primary protein sources (remember that proteins are made up of amino acids - enough variety in daily veg helps ensure your body can build the proteins it needs). However, when you do eat eggs, this is good advice (they are a quick breakfast food).
4. Cast iron pots + pans are great - I plan on getting more. If you use a gas or wood fueled stove, heat conductivity is not so great a concern (whether a traditional gas/wood stove or a rocket stove).
5. Great advice, particularly for the warmer/summer months, though not as advisable during the colder/winter months - your body needs to be cooled in the warmer seasons and warmed in the cooler seasons, simple as that.
6. Sound advice here, though most of the food I buy have no labels and/or expiry dates.
7. Lentils are great, and of particular benefit in the spring.
8. Yup. Or go for game - hunt and/or fish (and eat more fish than other meats - it’s better for you, and the environment… not farmed fish though, of course).
9. Absolutely. I’m not a big fan of cooking for one, for more than the reasons listed here, although I do it more often than I’d like as of late.
10. Yes. There was once a time when organic farming = farming. Why we let that change, I know not.
