When it comes to food everyone is a bit weary of being told what to do. It all sounds a bit complicated – cholesterol, saturated fat, organic, food miles, seasonal. The good news is it doesn’t have to be that complicated! LiveWell for LIFE’s research tells us that what’s healthy for people is – more or less – healthy for the planet too. And for some it might even be cheaper. It’s no radical proposal – it’s a diet that contains meat or fish every day including everything from chicken curry to macaroni cheese – if you so wish.
