The Minimalist Baker has a great love affair with food, and will make any foodie’s mouth water.

 

Fantastic Books

How not to die by Michael McGregor is an AMAZING science-backed book on how we can better manage, reduce, and reverse our chronic disease risk through the use of plant foods! It will blow your mind :)!

Sustainability

Websites

Sustainable Development Goals is a set of goals adopted by many countries on the 25th of September 2015 to “end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all”. There are 17 goals and each goal has specific targets to be achieved by 2030. We each need to know what these goals are and what we can do individually and collectively to make them happen.

Trash is for Tossers is about an amazing gal – Lauren Singer. She shares about her zero waste lifestyle and provides awesome waste free ideas.

 

Documentaries 

Food Inc shows how our food system has lost its honesty and integrity with society. It’s too focused on the quickest, cheapest, and most efficient ways to make and provide food, that it’s not considering (or possibly caring) about the consequences it has to our health, our environment, and our future food security.

 

Short Videos

We The People is a short video that gives us goose pumps every time we watch it. This quick video covers the 17 Sustainable Development Goals developed by the United Nations that help us work together towards achieving a safe and healthy future for all.

The Hidden Costs of Hamburgers shows how our food choices can have big environmental and health consequences. The example of eating too much red meat shows how food choices can be hurtful to our health, but can also put a heavy strain on our world’s land use, water use, and grain use, and increases nitrous oxide pollution in our air and oceans. Key message: it’s not necessarily about eliminating red meat but by eating less we can reduce the demand and strain it creates on our health and planet.
