Changing The Way We think About Food

The current way we are feeding the world is not sustainable.  There over 7 billion people (9.7 billion by 2050) to feed in the world today.  There has to be a change in how we will successfully accomplish feeding healthy foods to that amount.   Did you know that 50% of grain grown worldwide is consumed by livestock which is enough food to feed 10 billion people.

This week I want to share a few links to how this can be done and create a healthier population and planet. 
On the latest Rich Roll podcast: Bruce Friedrich on "Innovating the Future of Food".
A great  article by Dr. Joel Kahn: "Everything You Need To Know To Start A Plant-based Diet".

Here's a quick nutritious meal I created last week;

"V4Veg Mexican Bowl"
1/2 diced onion.
1 diced red, green or yellow bell pepper.
15 oz. can Trader Joe's Organic Black Beans.
16 oz. bag Trader Joe's Organic Corn.
8 oz. cubed Trader Joe's Organic 3-Grain Tempeh.
Spices: Cumin, Smoked Paprika, Chipotle, Sea Salt and Black pepper.
Prepared Quinoa or Brown Rice.

Saute onions in small amount of coconut oil or water.
Add in bell peppers and spices to taste.
Add cubed tempeh, getting good coverage with spices.
Let cook/marinate for 5-10 minutes, stirring until tempeh is warmed.
Mix in corn.
Stir in Black Beans.
Let cook for 10-15 minutes on medium heat.
Serve on  a bed of quinoa or brown rice.
Top with Daiya Cheddar Cheese or Nutritional Yeast
Shredded Romaine Lettuce

This a spicy meatless high protein, high fiber and nutritious meal!

Have a great week.
Be kind.
