Reclaim your kitchen for a climate-friendly diet


Diet For A Hot Planet, The Climate Change At The End Of Your Fork And What You Can Do About It, by Anna Lappé is a great and informative book about our non-climate friendly modern food system, and what you and I can do about it.

Our globalizing modern food system is characterized by distance. Distance in time, space and interpersonal relationships. This means that it can take a long time between harvesting and consumption of food, our contact with real food is lost, and so is the contact between producer and consumer.  How to close the gap?

Anna Lappé is listing 7 Principles of a Climate-Friendly Diet in her book:

1: Reach for real food
2: Put plants on your plate
3: Don´t panic, go organic
4: Lean toward local
5: Finish your peas...the ice caps are melting
6: Send packaging packing
7: Reclaim your own power to cook, grow, and create your own food

Each climate-friendly diet principle requires us to reclaim our kitchen and our hands! Get your cookbooks out and enjoy the pleasure of serving a nutritious meal to your loved ones!
