Eco Friendly Eating

What we put on our plates has a big impact on our health, but also on the health of our planet. Healthy foods and sustainable eating go hand in hand. Below are some suggestions  that are good for the earth and it’s inhabitants.



Good for the planet

Good for your health

Prioritize Plants

Help preserve water in the rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and underwater aquifers that serve the needs of every human and the world’s ecological systems, too.

Fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables at every meal and eat more nuts and legumes as alternative protein sources.

Go Fish

Some species are at risk of being overfished or produced in ways that harm the marine environment. Visit to search recommendations for sustainable seafood.


Fish is a healthy, high-protein food. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish least 2 times a week.

Look local

Shrink your carbon footprint and support the local community by choosing food produced close to home.

Local food is often extremely fresh and offers opportunity to try new foods.

Eat mindfully

Reflect on where your food comes from.

Tune into hunger signals and how foods nourish your body.
