Let us discuss what a sustainable diet is.
Many Western European, American, Australian, and British regions are adopting vegetarian or plant-based diets. This adaptation is expected to reduce food and grocery bills by up to 34% and at least 22%.
Plant-based diets are more sustainable than animal-based diets because they use fewer natural resources and are less taxing on the environment. Conversely, plant-based diets are known to be better for the heart and blood sugar balance.
Everyone can afford a healthy and sustainable diet, but it takes strong willpower to stick to it. However, it is not suitable for low-income diets due to the high starch content.
A plant-based diet may be a more affordable way to support your health and the planet’s health. But it’s important to note that the model is limited. Systemic change may make it a solution for more people, but other changes must first occur.
