Go Meat free at Work [Infographic]

How reducing the amount of meat you eat can be better for your health and the environment.

While many people eat meat every day in the office, there are definitely advantages in going meat-free. While I’m sure everyone is aware of the fact that cutting down on the amount of meat you have can save you money and help you lose weight, fewer people are as aware of the link between eating meat and cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer state that there is a causal link between eating processed meats and contracting cancer and that there is a strong correlation between eating red meat and cancer. This research is backed up by studies carried out by The Harvard School of Public Health, who found that unprocessed meat increases the risk of cardiovascular disease by 18% and of cancer by 10%. Processed meat, on the other hand, increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease by 21% and of cancer by 16%.

Another reason to eat less meat is the effect rearing these animals has on the environment. Currently the rearing of livestock takes up 30% of the earth’s surface and the livestock sector produces as much global greenhouse gases as the exhaust emissions of every car, train, ship and aircraft on the planet.

The guide below covers all of this and also gives you information on how to make sure you get enough protein and other ways you can make your packed lunch more eco-friendly, including a seasonal eating guide. Euroffice also added some quick and easy vegetarian recipes for you to start with.

Nice and natural recipe… must try! 💚

The Zero-Waste Chef

IMG_20160613_142619

This easy-to-make mouthwash passes the I-avoid-putting-anything-down-the-drain-that-I-won’t-eat test, which I mentioned in my recent TMI post. You might actually want to drink this, since it contains only vodka, spices and water.

Original Listerine, on the other hand, contains:

Active ingredients

  • Eucalyptol 0.092%
  • Menthol 0.042%
  • Methyl salicylate 0.060%
  • Thymol 0.064%

Inactive ingredients 

After you’ve polluted your mouth with this chemical concoction, you then have to deal with the disposal of the plastic pollution—the bottle and lid. Yes, you can recycle the bottle (but not the lid), however, plastic is downcycled, meaning it is recycled once or twice only before…

Recipe: Homemade Crunchy Granola

Since this year I promised myself I would not buy anymore cereal because of the plastic liner or bag they all come in. At that time, I realised there was a bulk shop where I live and I could buy cereal there, but I still didn’t like the idea of consuming cereal with lots of sugar added (at least that I didn’t control myself). So it was obvious I had to make my own cereal. Now I like it even more 🙂

Eat Good, Feel Good! 💚
