    Saving money, losing weight, and less food waste are all results of using smaller plates and eating smaller portions
  • Reflection Question
    Food Smaller Portions
    While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come from eating/serving smaller portions?

    Weight loss, eating healthier, and cheaper
  • Reflection Question
    Food Zero-waste Cooking
    In North America, up to 65% of food waste happens at the consumer level. Chef Steven Satterfield advocates for utilizing every part of a vegetable. How can you incorporate using an entire vegetable, including the skins, tops, and stalks during your next meal prep?

    Steaming and microwaving uses the least amount of water, which is the easiest and most environmentally friendly way to cook vegetables. I would use unwanted parts of vegetables and use them for soups or save them for other dishes

    What was your process like for restructuring your trip? How can you avoid more air travel in the future?

    I have not been on a plane in over 10 years. However, if I am required to travel by air, possibly i could travel by car or by train, depending on the location im traveling to
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    I personally only eat fish, and since I've stopped eating red meat and chicken, ive lost weight, my metabolism has sped up, and my skin is much clearer. I would recommend this to others, as it will also help our planet and other people
  • Reflection Question
    Transport Try Carpooling
    List some of the places you frequent often (work, grocery store, natural areas). Could you choose one or two days a week to schedule driving with a friend, neighbor or co-worker to these places?

    Yes, I already carpool everywhere I go because I do not have a car
  • Reflection Question
    Food Keep Track of Wasted Food
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Where would you rather use this money?

    If it where up to me, I'd rather go on vacation with my family with the $1500
