Ethical Omnivore 101 (the basics)

With a sea of information to read and digest it would be easy to get lost. Here is summary of the basics to get you started, my top ten.

  1. Support independent ethical farming – You can find better produce at a better price by cutting out the middle men. A direct farmer to consumer marketplace would really enhance our food choices.
  2. Avoid all factory farmed animal productschoose free range, organic, grass fed, traditionally produced.
  3. Make time to cookLoosing the ability to cook a wide variety of food, slow cooking meat, really enjoying veg, understanding pulses really reduces our food choices and control over our diets.
  4. Waste not want notuse up left overs, don’t over buy, cook and serve food. Think about how much food you throw away and work to reduce waste.
  5. Embrace a plant based dietthe easiest way to a healthy diet and freedom to choose is to understand how to enjoy a plant based diet. I’ll help you!
  6. Cut down on your intake of animal products – replace with veg, grain, legumes etc
  7. Raise your expectationsfor all produce, animal or plant to be good quality. If it isn’t change your supplier, rethink what you buy.
  8. Ask questions and read labelsquestion what is considered ‘normal’ and don’t make assumptions. Fancy restaurants or smart packaging doesn’t mean ethical produce.
  9. Open your mind Being an omnivore doesn’t mean we can’t access and use technics, ingredients, information normally reserved for veggie diets.
  10. Take responsibility for your own diet and health – Don’t rely on the industry for a healthy diet, their view point is biased and focused on profit. Read and learn, all the information you need is out there.
