Eco Friendly Diet
Dietvana is proud to say that we have an Eco friendly or Climatarian diet approach. We always create diets that aim to reduce the carbon footprint of the food you eat and help mitigate the impacts of climate change.
We encourage and promote our clients to the consumption of locally sourced, seasonal, and plant-based foods, while reducing or eliminating the consumption of meat, dairy, and processed foods that require large amounts of energy and resources to produce.
The goal of an eco-friendly diet is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the health of both individuals and the planet. This diet also supports sustainable agriculture practices, protects biodiversity, and reduces waste, making it a more environmentally conscious way of eating.
Dietvana can play a significant role in promoting environmentally friendly eating habits and reducing the carbon footprint of the food system. Here are some examples of how Dietvana is helping:
We educate clients about the environmental impact of their food choices, eat seasonal and locally sourced foods: Whenever possible, choose fruits and vegetables that are in season and grown close to your home. This helps reduce the carbon footprint of your food and supports local farmers.
We encourage clients to support sustainable agriculture by choosing foods produced using regenerative and organic methods.
Encourage reducing meat consumption: Dietvana can advise clients to reduce their meat consumption, particularly processed beef and lamb, which have a higher carbon footprint than other protein sources.
Advocate for reducing food waste: Dietvana encourages clients to plan their meals and reduce food waste by only buying what they need on the seven day menu.
Avoid processed foods: Processed foods often require more energy and resources to produce, so try to prepare meals from scratch and minimize packaged foods.
Promote environmentally friendly cooking methods: Dietvama teaches clients how to cook using methods that are more environmentally friendly, such as using a slow cooker, pressure cooker, or air fryer instead of a stove or oven.
Choose sustainable seafood: If you do eat seafood, opt for species that are abundant and caught using sustainable methods.
Here are some examples of Eco-Friendly- Climatarian meals that you can incorporate into your diet:
Breakfast: Oatmeal with fresh berries, nuts, and seeds, along with a cup of herbal tea
Lunch: Grilled vegetables (such as zucchini, bell peppers, and eggplant) served over a bed of brown rice or quinoa, with a side of chickpeas
Dinner: Stuffed bell peppers filled with a mixture of quinoa, black beans, and vegetables, topped with salsa and avocado
Snacks: Fresh fruit, hummus with vegetable sticks, or a handful of roasted almonds
Dessert: Apples with a drizzle of organic almond butter
Additionally, incorporating more plant-based foods into your diet can have numerous health benefits, including a reduced risk of chronic diseases.
