IMG_20190313_133342_012

This week’s podcast of the week is fresh off the press! It’s from The Food Medic with The Sustainable Dietitian and starts by discussing the principle of sustainable diets.
🌍
They go on to talk about the newly published planetary health diet, both the pros and cons.
🌍
A fun ‘pop-quiz’ was used to emphasise the the practicalities of a sustainable diet, such as financial implications & how many of the population are starting at a place where they aren’t meeting current ‘eat-well plate’ guidance.
🌍
Making sustainable foods more accessible and affordable are therefore crucial public health campaigns to achieve population level sustainable, healthy diets.
🌍
Also important is to increase sustainable food consumption in a step-wise manner. 🌍
Really interestingly they discuss the environmental impact and nutritional quality of plant milks – something I have mentioned in a blog post on eating sustainably healthily –  🌍
Overall it’s a really informative and balanced podcast – take a listen!
