Hi Food Rebels!
I wanted to thank all of you for your emails and comments to our first Recipes For Future post! It’s such a motivation boost, you wouldn’t believe.
In the past week I wondered why Fridays For Future triggered me so much. Do you know the food author Micheal Pollan?
In his book ‘Cooked‘ he put very well into words the reason why we started our website:
‘For years I had been trying to determine what is the most important thing an ordinary person can do to help reform the American food system, to make it healthier and more sustainable?’
And this is exactly what’s been roaming in our heads for years.
Our solution (for now) is this: let’s eat more vegetables!
The current food system stands for three things that almost make me aggressive:
1. It promotes illness and overweight
2. It causes animal abuse
3. It causes environmental destruction
Surely, the industrial meat production isn’t the only reason for a broken food system, but it is a massive part of it.
Long story short, Fridays For Future for me was the trigger to re-focus again and tackle the food system with the tools an ordinary person has. And if it’s ‘just eating more veggies’.
Alrighty, felt good to put these thoughts into words, thank you for reading!
Now, without further ado, Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner For Future!
