Create a ‘Green Meal Plan’ for the next week (or month)!
Keep the following in mind:
Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables
Try to buy organic food
Support local farmer’s markets and eat local food
Eat a plant-rich diet (fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, peas, nuts, and lentils): Animal-based foods are associated with the highest greenhouse gas emissions.
Avoid wasting food (or use leftovers to make compost!)
