Re: Have you changed your eating habits?

I'm a chef and having spent 12 out of the past 24 months working in seafood restaurants this is an issue that I am confronted with on a regular basis.

I try and source my ingredients from the most sustainable sources possible. This usually involves paying more but if you are buying from sustainable sources you tend to be buying from people who care about their product and so the quality is usually superior.

For instance I get my smoked salmon from these guys as not only are their products amazing they all come from sustainably sourced fish which they farm themselves.

Has anybody else significantly changed what they eat for environmental reasons only? I can't bring myself to become veggie although I know that the production of meat is way less efficient than if I just ate the cattlefeed directly!
Well, I appreciate your sense and responsibility

I believe that everything in this life is made for a reason, even when people misuse it like this what they do by throwing the fish away after fishing it, but then other fish or birds or animals can eat it, that is simply how life is about.

It is really sad when you see people misusing things and destroying life balance, and it is great to see people keen about returning this balance again, even by starting just by themselves - but it happens everywhere, and if you can stop it in civilized countries, you will never be able to stop it in less civilized and developing countries.

Some countries, they fish using dynamite bombs! others grow up fishes in .....

Well, I believe as long as the food is not forbidden due to religious reasons - we shouldn't stop our habits because by this we are not punishing those whom are doing wrong by throwing the tons of these dead fishes back to water, we are just punishing ourselves.

Maybe we try to find other ways than boycotting to solve this problem - it may be seen as an escape from the problem -I am not sure, I am just brainstorming my thoughts.

Well question comes here.... What if we think about it the other way around - which is if we eat more fish, will the possibility to have some thrown away will be reduced ?

Well I have, temporarily. OH is away for a while, and I can't be asked to cook. Cereal, soups and fruit, with a bit of cheese. That will do.
