Climate-Friendly Recipes

Did you know that an average meal produces 1.6kg of carbon per serving? We have set our recipe target to reduce that average by 1kg. Therefore, each of our recipes are selected and adapted to ensure that the ingredients used produce less than 600g of carbon per serving. We calculate this carbon production with the assistance of our partner Eaternity and update the carbon miles
based on the origin, production method and seasonality.

Our recipes follow a simple, flexitarian style, focusing on plant based items, while allowing for small amounts of meat, fish, poultry, and cheese. Each of our recipes are analysed by a registered dietitian for up-to-date nutrition information, and we highlight nutrients that should be initially monitored when consuming a more plant-based diet, namely protein, iron, calcium, zinc, and vitamin B12.

We focus on simple dishes that utilise food items readily available in local grocery stores. We select recipes that typically have less than 10 ingredients, and take no more than 30 minutes to prepare. For those on a tight grocery budget, you’ll be pleased to know that climate-friendly foods are often less costly.
