We all know that we should be trying to eat more ‘seasonally’; food in season is often fresher, tastier and more nutritious than food consumed out of season (which often has to shipped thousands of miles, too).
But how easy is it to eat seasonally? In these new regular blog posts I’ll share a list of what’s in season each month – and find some local restaurants / cafes who are putting seasonal specials on the menu, right now.
New research from the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) suggests that Welsh diners want restaurants and cafes to serve more sustainable meals as eating out restrictions are eased.
We all know we should be doing our bit to cut food waste at home. But when it comes to the stuff we can’t eat (like teabags, coffee grounds, and eggshells) we can still have a positive environmental impact by making sure we recycle them.
Covid-19 has shaken our complacency about where our food comes from to the core. Research shows that people do not want to just return to how things were before, and many of us say we want to make better choices that will support people, animals and our environment.
But how do we put words into action? As more of us seek to minimise our impact on the planet, simply choosing to eat more organic food can offer an easy, trusted way to be more sustainable in our daily lives.
