If you’re a lover of cooking, you’ve surely heard about the “New Normal” that’s going on in the world of food. More and more products are made from 100 percent plant-based ingredients, new ways of preparing foods are being developed, and plant-based foods are becoming mainstream.
I think most people would agree that we should start using more plant-based products in our lives as soon as possible. But what if we don’t know what all those new products will mean to us? Or what we’re losing out to? Well, a lot of people are already aware of this so it’s not like we can’t start making use of these ingredients.
What we could also agree on is that we need to be more aware of our impact on the environment. A lot of people are using plastic and making their products a lot more expensive, even though theyre made from 100 percent plant-based ingredients. We also need to make sure that the products we use are in a safe environment. And even though there are still plastics in the environment, theyre not like the kind that are harming animals.
We’re all aware of the fact that we’re contributing to global warming, but only the people who are really affected by it are getting the message. The people who don’t really care, like ourselves, are not aware of the extent of this problem.
This is an important topic, because all of us are making a difference, but we need to be aware of our actions so we can do the right thing. But there are too many of us who have a hard time focusing on what we do. We may have an idea about what we should be doing, but we have trouble seeing the big picture. We’re afraid to get our act together and realize we can make a difference.
We have an idea of what we should be doing, but we have trouble seeing the big picture.
