Plant Based Diets
Beef to Poultry
Can't imagine living without bacon? Are cheeseburgers your favorite way to celebrate a warm summer day? Aim for less, not zero meat! If a recipe calls for 1 lb of chicken, make the dish with 1/2 lb. Try substituting ground turkey for ground beef. Institute a meatless Monday tradition. Less is definitely more when reducing carbon emissions.
Learn more about how carbon emissions are related to your food choices.
While the art of meatless chick'n, "don't be a piggy," impossible burger, and other faux-meats have come a LONG way in the past few decades, other plant-based dairies are still not quite up to snuff for some of us. If eggs, cheese, yogurts, and other dairy products are a must, go vegetarian!
