Use your dining room table to help you combat climate change.
When you go to the supermarket to buy groceries, you probably don’t think much about how everything got to the store. There are the farmers, the harvesting machines, the delivery trucks, the stockers, and countless other people involved in getting meats and produce and ice cream from where they’re made to your kitchen.
But there are many real costs involved—and most of them involve impacts to the environment more than to bank accounts. Food production contributes one-fourth of our global greenhouse gas emissions. This is a significant number that’s part of the climate change conversation. But you can take a few small steps to help lower that number—and The Low-Carbon Cookbook will show you how.
This book will include science-backed information on how to make the most-climate friendly choices—from examining the impact of the supply chain for the foods that end up on our plates to evaluating the carbon footprint of various plant-based options we have. The Low-Carbon Cookbook will also feature 140 plant-based recipes made almost exclusively with locally sourced ingredients. If you’re looking for a way to combat climate change from your kitchen, this book will help you with your goals.
