I started to like plant-based food more when I realised that they can be more beneficial not only to my health by lowering body weight and reducing heart diseases risks but also to the environment. It has been reported that meat production, compared with meatless food production, can lead to more greenhouse gas emissions and also increasing the use of water and land. Since then, I became flexitarian (a word describing semi-vegetarian), by which I mean I chose to reduce my meat consumption on purpose. Now, a step further can be taken by preparing my own flexitarian food! This can help reduce food waste and also the use of disposable utensils, which is a big issue when ordering takeaways. I've started this Monday to prepare meatless food myself for one meal every day and hope to increase the frequencies for the following weeks!
