Though we’re out of the country, we thought we’d still provide you with a little bit of food for thought!
Listening to this commentary by Mark Bittman on my favorite show (Marketplace – I love you Kai Ryssdal!) the other day, we heard this interesting stat: In 2012, America’s meat and poultry consumption will be about 12% less than it was in 2007.
This warmed our hearts! Why? Not because we’re anti-meat – we’re actually very pro eating good, clean, well-raised meat.
However, with the world’s demand for meat currently on the rise, a large amount of this meat is being produced unsustainably – that is, in a way that’s not healthy for the animals, the earth, or for your body.
When we found this out, we decided to change our main cooking style at home to meatless, with a little well-raised, local meat on occasion (see why we do what we do here). And, looks like many of you have too!
Looking to lessen the meat consumption in your diet? Check out this helpful article on how to eat less meat, also written by Bittman.
