Well, there are plenty of ways, actually. There are foods which are more sustainable, and there are foods that are better for the environment as a whole. For instance, buying locally will cut down on shipping costs, emissions, and gas used when delivering over a long distance. Eating food the season it naturally grows in cuts down on energy used to try and make it grow at a time when it normally wouldn’t. Check the link for even more ideas and information.
The easiest way is to go vegetarian or pescetarian, as a great deal of space is dedicated to farming red meat and chicken, in addition to the methane created by the cows of factory farming.
I hope this helped!
One way you can help the environment through diet is to buy foods that do not come in containers. This way, you are not contributing to the overproduction of plastic and paper products. Moreover, foods that have no labels are usually the most nutritious: fruits, vegetables. Bring your own canvas bag to go grocery shopping. And if you have to choose between, say, eggs in styrofoam or eggs in paper cartons, go with the latter, since it is biodegradable.
