How does your diet affects the environment?

How does your diet affects the environment?

Your diet has more impact on the environment than driving your car does.

Not many people give much thought as to how their diet impacts the environment, the animals, and our future. And some people don't care at all. But it is a real problem as our diets are linked to the environment through the companies you fund and your personal emissions. By giving your money to the meat industry (not necessarily local farms, but factory farms), you're funding the depletion of our water sources and destruction of the environment with clearing of land and costs of production/transportation (supply and demand) and are therefore increasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Decreasing or eliminating your funding to the company directly affects the damage done to the environment by cutting emissions (both industrial and personal) and deforestation.

Why change your diet?

Everyone has the ability to adjust their diet for the sake of our future and the future of the environment. We all live on this planet and we should all want to keep it sustainable. Limiting your meat intake can cut down GHG emissions significantly; imagine the positive effects if everyone were to do the same, in addition to those that would eliminate meats from their diet completely. From the chart shown here, you can see the carbon footprints based on one's diet; simply cutting down on meat consumption (typically red and processed meats) or cutting it out completely decreases your footprint by half!

Emissions from meat production are extremely high.

Meat products are the top food contributors to carbon emissions in comparison to plant foods. Currently, the animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of GHG emissions while livestock and their byproducts are responsible for 51 percent of GHG emissions. These emissions are expected to grow to a scary 80 percent by the year 2050, which would mean devastation for our planet and way of life. For more information, follow this link (which also contains information about the next two sections as well).

Less meat equals more water.

Meat production uses astonishing amounts of water annually that could be put to better use or could be conserved all together. Animal agriculture consumes between 34-76 trillion gallons of water annually. In the U.S., 80-90 percent of water consumed is by animal agriculture. The range for the production of beef is between 442-8000 gallons of water per one pound. The average daily water footprint based on diet goes as follows: Omnivorous diet-4000 gallons, Vegetarian diet-1200 gallons, Vegan diet-300 gallons.

Additional benefits.

Limiting or eliminating meat from your diet won't just benefit the environment, it will help you as well! Other benefits (personal and general) include: decreased risk or type II diabetes, cancer, and coronary heart disease, conservation of rain forests, animal life, and water, less water pollution, and a lower amount of methane gas released into the atmosphere.

I understand that this article will challenge your way of life, but that's the purpose of it. But remember, you weren't forced to read anything. All I'm asking is for you to understand that our future rests in our hands, and you have the ability to make a change every time you go to the grocery store and every time you sit down to eat.

MEET YOUR FARMERS

MEET YOUR FARMERS

Over the last  8 years it has been a keen interest of ours to support the small Filipino farms. Between our unpredictable climate, and unsophisticated logistics options, they have a tough, thankless job and we wish to support them with our business as much as we can.

We have worked with farmers all over Luzon: from growers in Tagaytay, to the mountain provinces up north where entire plots are grown and reserved just to supply the growing produce demands of Juju Eats. It is our priority to keep them in business, as much as it is to ensure our steady supply.

This year,  we've got even better news to share - something we're been working on for a while, and super excited to be a part of! Yesterday, we signed our official partnership with the AYALA FOUNDATION, INC (AFI) community development and livelihood program, directly supporting a community of farmers in Calauan, Laguna called Southville7.

Southville7 is a 107 hectare relocation site for families from Marikina displaced by Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana), and the Pasig River Rehabilitation. Owned by the National Housing Authority, the property is home to roughly 4,500 families displaced families who, through the efforts of AFI, have been re-trained as organic farmers to adapt, and thrive in their new home. This co-op of (mostly female!) farmers continue to be trained by TESDA in vegetable production, livestock production, organic fertilizer production, and pest and disease management.

What was once a reluctant group of displaced individuals has grown into a thriving, and sustainable community. It goes without saying, that we at Juju Eats are honoured to be a part this chain of good. Win-win for everyone!

Good Food Tour – Healthy Edition

"Nowadays, people are really hyped by the idea of eating healthy food or the so called green cuisine, may it be for the reason that they really want to be fit or perhaps for the sake of just trying. foodpanda together with some mainstream and social media partners picked three diners and reveled on the goodness of the most underrated of all menus, the healthy diet. First on the list was Juju Eats.

Simple. Delicious. Healthy. We aim to re-define fast food by combining enjoyment and quality, with healthy and light nutrition,” says Kat Azanza, the mind behind the popular green diner. If you’re looking for food that is low on carbs yet heavy on the belly, this is the perfect place for you. Their Panini that was launched early this year is gaining a lot of attention already. “Green cuisine is known to be bland, boring, and dull and we want to challenge that. We want to prove to people that eating healthy could also be fun and a big thanks to foodpanda, promoting a healthier lifestyle is made easier by delivering hearty meals on our customer’s door steps,” exalts the bubbly Kat. Juju Eats also boasts of its complete line up of nutritious meals from pasta, to salads, to rice bowls, and to detoxifying smoothies."

THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOOD PYRAMID

Inflammation is right up there with sugar in terms of scary wellness words. You’ve probably heard the laundry list of ailments it’s tied to: acne, sleeping problems, gut issues, and even life-threatening conditions, like heart disease.

The good news is that you can eat your way to better health—as long as you’re filling up on the right foods.

Keep in mind, though, that following the anti-inflammatory food pyramid should be used as a helpful guide—not something to stress over (hello, cortisol). After all, it mostly comes down to one thing: eating nutritious whole foods and filling up on lots of greens.

We juice the juice RIGHT!

We juice the juice RIGHT!

What is cold-pressed and what’s so good about it? Here goes!

For starters, we use tons of fresh fruit and vegetables that get delivered to our facility every morning! This is important - because the fresher the produce, the better the juice! Almost 2lbs of fresh fruit and veg go into every 500ml. bottle. Believe me, thats a lot! 

We use Norwalk juicers! It's the mother of all table top juicers and a tedious, time consuming process that works differently than your regular juicers which use high speed blades which reduce the nutritional quality of the juice through heat and oxidation. Now instead of using spinning blades, the Norwalk Hydraulic Press gently and completely extracts the natural fruit sugars, vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes, and other vital elements.  This imparts to the juice an extremely fine quality and flavor to the juice which is unequaled by any other method of juice extraction.

The result? Deep jewel tones of pure juice, that maintains its nutritional integrity for 3 days provided that they have been properly handled and chilled.
