Make The Pledge by Nikki Miles
With this playful painting, illustrator Nikki Miles is urging us to make a pinky promise to go easy on the meat and its carbon consequences and enjoy some veg instead.
“I don’t eat a lot of meat but I’m not strictly a vegetarian either,” says Nikki. “I have tried being a vegetarian in the past but I found it to hard to give up the odd bacon sandwich or roast dinner with beef gravy. I only eat meat around once or twice a week because vegetables are yummy too! Eating more veg and less meat is a simple way to make a big difference to your health and the environment.”
On average, people living in developed countries eat their own weight in meat every year. It’s pumping more CO2 into our atmosphere than anything else on our planet and it’s using up our water supplies like there’s no tomorrow.
The meat-eating mentality can be a tough thing to change. Fool yourself into eating more veg with this selection of timeless recipes that are so good that you won’t believe they’re meatless.
