VEGers tell all at Farmer's Market
Did you know that reducing your meat and dairy intake may be the most effective way you can act to stop the impending climate disaster?
In a recently published article in The Guardian, findings of a new Oxford University study were outlined: “whilst meat and dairy production provides just 18% of calories and 37% of protein, it uses the vast majority – 83% – of farmland and produces 60% of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions”.
OK, so it’s time to change. But how, you say? What should I cook? Will my kids/partner/guests eat it? What about my health and fitness? What about when I go out?
MRSG VEG group members Heather and Suzanne will be at the MRSG tent at this Saturday’s Farmer’s Market to discuss everything you need to know to get started on a plant-rich diet. They can share practical ideas including:
Basic food substitutions you can make to increase plant consumption
Foods to avoid
Cafes and restaurants that provide delicious plant based snacks and meals
Recipe ideas for home
The basics about how your health will improve with a plant rich diet
An indication of how much money you could save by making small but important changes to your diet
How to join the VEG action group to meet other like minded people for inspiration and support.
Great website resources out there - There are lots of them! For example https://www.challenge22.com offers a free program including a mentor, recipes, dietician support for those who want to try going plant based for 22 days.
Come on down and have a chat to the VEG action group team at the market this Saturday. We look forward to seeing you there.
If you can’t make it, get in touch by email and join our action group.
