Sustainable eating practices — knowing where food comes from and how to sustain the sources — helps us plan for now and the future, says the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Looking past the supermarket shelf and learning how your food is produced is a first step.
The school suggests:
- Plan your meals around vegetables and fruit.
- Minimize the amount of meat you eat.
- Choose seafood that isn’t at risk of being overfished.
- Look for local produce at farmer’s markets.
