There were a few pieces that caught my eye this week that all dealt with the statistics of our food consumption. They’ll make some interesting weekend reading.
A visual that gives the big picture of our meat habit is over on NPR. The amount of food, water, land and energy that are required to create just one-quarter pound of ground beef has an impact on the environment. It’s a good graphic argument for eating less meat.
Not all the news coming from NPR is a cause for concern, however. NPR also reports that many Americans are eating less red meat. Thirty-nine percent of adults surveyed said they eat less red meat than they did three years ago.
Happy reading and enjoy your weekend!
