Our Future: A Plants-Based Diet?

Is a vegetarian diet the future of food? According to recent research by the Stockholm Water Institute, the entire population may be forced to switch to a vegetarian diet by the year 2050 in order to avoid critical food and water shortages. You might be wondering how we could possibly run out of food and water by that time. Well, there are huge environmental costs associated with meat consumption, not to mention serious problems associated with waste disposal from factory farms. Check out Kimberly Snyder’s blog to learn more.

So what’s the solution? Eat organic (the manner in which organic foods are produced reduces toxicity in the environment and ground water), eat local, eat seasonal, and minimize your animal protein intake to less than 1-3 times per week!
