Frequently Asked Questions about our Sustainable Cooking Recipes

What is sustainable cooking?

In short, sustainable cooking is preparing and cooking meals that not only benefit your health but benefit the environment.

By becoming more aware of the foods you’re eating and where they are sourced from, you can begin to make more eco-friendly choices that will ultimately benefit the planet as well as your personal health and wellbeing.  

What are some of the most sustainable meals?

There are many delicious sustainable recipes and meals to enjoy. It goes without saying that a variety of freshly, and if you can, homegrown vegetables are a great way to eat well. Preparing vegetables such as potatoes, broccoli, cabbage, mushrooms, courgette, carrots and parsnips, and other sustainable foods including leafy greens, rice, beans, and fruits is good too.

This, however, doesn’t mean you have to be vegetarian or vegan. There are ways to be more sustainable when choosing your source of meat. For example, shop through local butchers, who tend to have a good relationship with farmers with a shorter farm to fork journey. This reduces the carbon dioxide produced during production. Through a variety of studies, fish and poultry tend to be the most eco-friendly meats, closely followed by pork

Why is cooking at home sustainable?

Cooking from home allows you to choose and prepare a more sustainable selection of foods, something you otherwise wouldn’t have a say in of visiting a restaurant.

Home cooking is a great way to not only eat more sustainable foods, but to use less energy and reduce your food waste with leftovers or specific portion sizing that won’t end up in your bin.
