Hi veggie tribe,

Climate justice. It’s on!

Slowly but surely camps crystallize: one is fed up with all this climate hysteria and want to send Greta on a plane home to Sweden. The other think ‘FINALLY!!‘.

Dave, Kat and I are in the second camp. We are happy that the climate debate is finally on the streets. Because it needs to be.

How did he get up there? Dave took this pic last Friday in Hamburg.

After reading an article this morning on how serious the situation already is in many regions of the world (eg. more than 50°C / 122°F in some places), I was motivated to write you this post.

We decided that we have to contribute our part to support the Fridays for Future Movement and we want to do it by providing you with a full day of climate-friendly recipes for every Friday.

Every Friday: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner for Future

But what are climate friendly recipes? 

Well, the production of each food has a carbon footprint. So it is possible to say what environmental impact beef (for example) has (it’s very bad). Actually, beef production has one of the biggest environmental impacts out there. Worse than driving cars, experts say.

Check out this overview by The Guardian.

The gist is clear: plant products are climate friendliest.

Luckily, we have loads of awesome vegan dishes up our sleeves! So here comes our first Friday batch of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner for Future:

Or do you think this is all hype and we could do a lot against the heat by just calming down? Have you tried a recipe yet? Please leave a comment with your thoughts at the bottom of the post.

Have a great week!


PS. No need to go for all recipes right away, one or maybe two would be a brilliant start already!

  1. Yes, I’ve tried some of your recipes and thank you for doing this. I’m a waffling carnivore currently, and have been a waffling vegetarian in the past, and a disciplined vegan long, long ago. I never really learned how to cook vegan, and it’s amazing that I did so well with it – but I was young, and struggling, and cuisine was not important to me. Now, it’s important. Food is so key to so much in our communities, and it is very helpful to be able to learn how to make really good and really easy vegan meals.

    1. Happy to help, Sarah! Yes, we really like the idea too and will do our best to promote it. Agreed, cuisine is important – it’s hard to stick to something if you don’t like it at all. The more that join us, the merrier – and thanks for writing!
