This week (11th to 17th May) celebrates National Vegetarian Week. It represents a wonderful opportunity for everyone across the country to embrace the humble vegetable in their diet – and to discover it can be a superstar for both health and planet.
Eating your greens is the new black...
The National Vegetarian Society run this annual campaign to get people off the meat and into the green stuff – or orange, red, pink, purple, yellow – the list goes on. Vegetarian diets are becoming more and more popular as people see the benefits…
Vegetables offer a vibrant, colourful alternative to meat – it’s a healthier diet and good for the planet with cattle producing a large portion of greenhouse gasses.
A diet with less meat can help to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and obesity.
So, why not embrace a week of going meat free and see if you can feel the benefit? You’ll certainly lower your carbon footprint which is wonderful for the planet. A more plant based diet helps reduce carbon emissions to tackle climate change. With climate change already impacting on our health, any way we can make a positive difference will help us all staff healthier in the longer term.
