Do you eat less meat than you used to?
If you’re finding your favourite recipes are deliciously fresh, healthy and increasingly meat-free, you’re not alone.
A new study by researchers at Oxford University, published in The Lancet Planetary Health journal, used data from the National Diet and Nutrition Survey to assess changes in the consumption of red, white, and processed meat in the UK, and it turns out Brits’ daily meat consumption has dropped 17% in a decade.
Along with the environmental benefits of eating less meat, there are myriad health benefits too, and it’s helpful that there are many meaty dishes that taste just as good if you swap the carnivorous elements for vegetarian ones.
Have your eating habits changed in the last 10 years? Do you have more meat-free days? Have you stopped eating meat all together?
