The Environmental Costs of Protein Choices
Excerpt form my Chapter.
Our lives depend on the environment: the air we breathe, the water we drink,
and the land we call home. This chapter explores the relationship between
the food we eat and our environment. It demonstrates that as individuals, we
have the power to effect change by choosing to spend money in ways that
stimulate our economies, support communities, and promote environmental
The Climate Crisis
The climate crisis can be so intense that it leaves us feeling powerless. It’s no wonder that some people remain wilfully ignorant, while others are plagued
by guilt when their actions do not align with their values. But the truth is that industry is driven by our choices and governments by our votes. Supply and demand start with you and me. We cast our votes with every dollar we spend and every politician we elect…
Land Use and Global Food Security
Half of all habitable land on planet Earth is used for agriculture. Yes, half.
This leaves only 37 percent for forests, 11 percent for shrub ecosystems, 1 percent for fresh water, and 1 percent for urban development. Although most of the agricultural land is used for meat and dairy production, this accounts for only 17 percent of calories produced…
If you have ever lived through a drought, you are aware of the challenges that lack of water can impose on communities. With climate change, combined droughts and heatwaves are becoming more frequent. Blame for water scarcity is often directed at the oil and gas industry, bottled water companies, or irresponsible personal water use, such as excessive watering of lawns and long showers. While these consume water, what we choose to eat can have an even more dramatic impact…
Water pollution is a global issue that affects economic growth and the health
of billions. Agriculture plays a major role by releasing large amounts of
pesticides, fertilizers, drug residues, and sediments into our bodies of water.
This increases the risk to ecosystems, drinking water, and economic potential…
The Case for Plant-Based Protein
Registered dietitians Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina join agrologist Cory Davis for a deep dive into the politics and fallacies surrounding plant-based protein. Together, they present the science and studies that validate why protein derived from plants is not only comparable to protein from animal products but also is often superior to it!
The roles of macronutrients and micronutrients and which essential amino acids found in protein promote healthy growth are clearly explained. The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for protein for specific age brackets, as well as for athletes and pregnant women, is identified, along with suggestions for how to obtain all the vital nutrients each group requires.
Detailed information is presented regarding two key advantages unique to plant-based protein: a lighter carbon footprint and the ability to reduce the risk of chronic diseases thanks to an abundance of healthful compounds.
From easy-to-understand nutritional information to pantry suggestions, cooking tips, and mouthwatering recipes, this book contains everything necessary to adopt a plant-based diet and be assured that it’s a wholesome, nourishing, and protein-abundant choice.
