    This thought-provoking article discusses how our consumption of dairy & meat is affecting climate change. The link between food production/transportation/consumption and climate change is not always examined, or put in the spotlight.

    Many people are under the assumption that meat = protein. But there are several other ways to get your daily servings of protein. Here are some delicious examples:
    – Vegetables {spinach, green beans, kale, peas, etc.}
    – Hemp {hemp seeds, hemp powder, etc. – easy to add to a smoothie!}
    – Soy {milk, beans, etc.}
    – Nut butter {peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter}
    – Quinoa – a great alternative to rice!
    – Tofu
    – Lentils
    – Beans {kidney, black, chick peas, lima, etc.}
    – Sprouted grain bread

    Choosing one of these options instead of meat for your daily protein intake can help make a difference when it comes to our global impact on climate change. Think about it!
