If they told you that it was possible to eradicate hunger in the world, would you believe it?
This is one of the premises of World Food Day 2016: let`s adapt to agriculture to create the first generation free from hunger.
Indeed, with a world population of 9 billion people expected by 2050, the idea of having food in abundance, quality and safety for everybody may seem utopian, but it is in this sense that FAO (United Nations Food and Agriculture) is working.
A BodyConcept body or a BodyConcept world?
The concept of beauty is always relative, but we have no doubts that a BodyConcept body begins with the food choices we make and that are reflected in the health of our body. But these choices also have an impact on the world, and by changing our eating habits, we are not only taking care of ourselves as we are helping to create a more sustainable world… and beautiful!
We give you some simple suggestions that you can implement now:
- By local products to reduce your carbon footprint;
- Choose “ugly” fruit: this is not why it is less tasty and helps to avoid wasting food that will otherwise be thrown away;
- Consume fish from species that are not threatened by overfishing (for example: replace sardines with mackerel);
- Buy only what you need to avoid wasting food;
- Buy organic products: organic farming helps soils retain carbon that otherwise would be released into the atmosphere;
- Consume certified coffee, tea or chocolate to ensure that the profits are distributed to the small producers and the forests are preserved.
