Tips For Eating More Sustainably

With healthy living and self-care on the rise, the demand for superfoods has shot up quite a bit. If you’re dedicated to reducing your carbon footprint, there are plenty of nutrient-rich superfoods you can enjoy sustainably. 

Beans and Lentils

These humble superfoods are chock full of various nutrients and have a very low carbon footprint, much less than meat. Beans and lentils enrich the soil they are grown in, making it better for growing other crops. These superfoods also require significantly less water for their cultivation.

Sweet Potatoes

This versatile superfood not only requires very little fertilizer and water to grow, but it also packs a lot of nutrients. Sweet potatoes are grown in warm weather across several farms in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina, making the food system more resilient. 

Sprouts

Sprouting is a fantastic process developed in China 5000 years ago. It doubles, sometimes triples the nutritional value of a food. Sprouts are a very sustainable superfood that you can make in your own home with various seeds like mung beans, chickpeas, alfalfa, and many more. When you sprout a seed, what you get is at the peak of its nutritional content. 

Local Fruits and Vegetables

You can reduce your carbon footprint by buying fruits and veggies from the local farmers market. FeelGood supports local organic farmers with our Vita Fruits + Veggies capsules. They contain a blend of 25 organic fruits and vegetables from small family farms!

Eggs

Did you know - eggs contain all essential vitamins except for vitamin C. They also have good protein content and antioxidant properties. And when bought  locally they do not leave behind a huge carbon footprint.

FeelGood Superfoods® Is Dedicated to Caring for Our Bodies & Our Planet

FeelGood superfood powders are packaged in the United States using locally sourced containers that are recyclable. We also support the PIER Institute, a social enterprise that develops and implements sustainable solutions that strengthen communities in some of the regions where we source our quality ingredients.

The planet needs you to start somewhere. Shop in bulk and use reusable bags and containers. Try eating more vegetable-based dishes and opt for locally sourced ingredients when you can. You can also reduce food waste by composting food scrap.
