Nutrition research at the University of Minnesota and Oxford University shows that a predominance of healthy foods in your diet has a very positive effect on your carbon footprint as well as on your weight, blood pressure, and lipid profile.
The researchers conclude that fruits, vegetable, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and olive oil drive both health and positive environmental impacts. Fish, too, are healthy foods. While they do have more negative environmental impact than plant-based foods, they are way healthier for both you and our world than red meat.
So shop the supermarket periphery and the fish counter for foods that help you live longer while leaving a healthier planet for our kids.
