How can we measure how much carbon it takes to make food?

    First, you must calculate the amount of energy used to raise or grow the particular food. If it is a meal, each ingredient must be evaluated separately. Then, you calculate the amount of energy it took to get the food from the farm or factory to your local store. Then, you must calculate how much energy it took for you to get to the store and back home, and how much energy was used to cook the food. Online carbon footprint calculators can help simplify this process.
