Which diet creates the least amount of food waste? Two rules-of-thumb for food choices!



氣候危機正在上升到全球議程的首位,讓更多人意識到我們的消費選擇與其留下的碳足蹟之間的聯繫。雖然關於食物足蹟的一些問題看起來相對簡單,但現實可能並不總是像看起來那麼簡單。

The climate crisis is rising to the top of the global agenda, waking more people up to the connection between our consumption choices and the carbon footprint it leaves behind. While some questions about the footprint of food can appear to be relatively straightforward, the reality may not always be as simple as it seems.


今天,我們探索不同的飲食選擇,並找出哪一種與最多的食物浪費有關。

Today, we explore different dietary choices and find out which one is associated with the most food waste.


1)沿著食物鏈吃下去

Eat down the food chain



任何需要較少資源來生產的食物都會減少浪費,所以我們可以吃的所有東西都可以完整烹飪(這也意味著加工食品更少)。以植物為基礎的飲食是簡單的第一步。但如果你吃魚,那就選擇小一點的魚,例如:沙丁魚或鳳尾魚。

Any food that requires fewer resources to produce is less wasteful, so everything we can eat and cook whole (that also means less processed food). A plant-based diet is an easy first step. But if you eat fish, then go for smaller fish – sardines and anchovies, for example.


2)選擇供應鏈較短的食物

Choose foods that have a shorter supply chain


如果你能自己種,那就最好了!但如果不是,就在本地採購。供應鏈越短,系統處理過剩的就越靈活。

If you can grow your own, that’s the best! But if not, source locally. The shorter the supply chain, the more agile the system will be to handle the excess.



我們知道,世界上對碳最可持續的飲食的選擇是植物性飲食,動物產品越少越好!
We know that the most carbon-friendly and sustainable dietary choice in the world is a plant-based diet. The less animal products, the better.
