Help The Planet While You Eat


Eating healthy and at the same time contributing in sustainable development, is not a notion that cannot be succeeded with today's vast choices of food consumption. Actually, the people's need to grab something to eat, enjoy every bite and at the same time help the planet, has evolved over the last decade into a multimillion dollar business, as U.S. grocery chains, like that of Whole Food Markets, are offering organically cultivated and fresh products at considerably lower cost than before.

"Green" convenience foods, which promote themselves as environmentally friendly, are now well-priced and their assortment of fresh or canned products are extremely tasty. Ready to cook pizzas, pesto sauce in glass containers, a variety of handmade pasta and chili, and apple pies are just an example of the choices a consumer has to taste the unexpected thrill of being environmentally conscious and stay within the household grocery budget. These kinds of stores have introduced another type of culinary experience and some carry their own brands that are well-prepared and approved by the FDA. Meals created with the use of organic ingredients that come in recycled packaging, offer to customers the opportunity of spending their income on foods that not only are healthier and tastier, but also environmentally friendly.

The other choice one has is to dine out at "green" restaurants. Instead of being offered the usual menu choices from their local fast food or nationwide restaurant chain with the typical and most times classic menu, "green" type of food businesses indulge the visitors to experience another kind of tasty bites, ranging from coffee houses, delis, restaurants and more. These eating establishments are checked out and regularly conserve energy, recycle and generally contribute in protecting our environment.

Finally, if you decide to continue eating at your preferred fast food chain, which you should know is not the best choice you could make if you want to consider yourself environmentally conscious, you should better do your part in protecting our environment. Instead of taking the food with you, sit down and eat it at the fast food premises. This will save another paper bag and you will create as little trash as possible. Do not select the super-size menu choice for two reasons. First for your silhouette and second for the leftovers you will have to throw out later. Say no to the huge portion of napkins you are offered when receiving your order as you will probably will not need to use more than two. If the drink is huge, share it with your friends and instead of using two cups, use two straws. If you want to avoid the straws, then just drink it from the paper cup directly and save the planet from yet another waste.
