One of our favorite things about the #GEMnasium is that every class can contribute to the 2019 Grand Challenge in their own unique way. The outcome wall is a great way to share and connect possible collisions between courses, research, and projects. 📸 credit: @beth.shanz #foodjustice #foodsystems #resilient #daytonohio #creativethinking #appliedcreativity #communityfoodsystems #commongood

THE PLANETARY HEALTH DIET
It’s nice there’s a diet gaining media attention which isn’t focussed on weight loss. -
A RESULT of 37 scientists collating all the evidence on optimal nutritional intake and sustainable food production
THE OBJECTIVE of this new dietary approach is to benefit both people and the planet.
-
IN SHORT, this means more legumes, plant-based protein sources and upping fruit and veg to improve health and the environment. -
IN LONG, a daily intake looks a little like this:
➡️ CARBOHYDRATE: Whole grains = 800kcals & Potatoes / cassava = 40kcals
➡️ FAT: predominately unsaturated ➡️ HALF A PLATE of f & v:
3 x large* veg portions &
1-3 x large* fruit portions ➡️ 1 glass of whole milk (or equivalent)
➡️ PROTEIN (per week): Red meat = once or less, Poultry once, 2(ish) eggs, Fish = roughly twice, Legumes & nuts = the rest!
❗️possibly a B12 supplement - this is the only nutrient the authors state to be at risk of deficiency
-
*large = 100g, a normal portion being 80g
-
OBVIOUSLY There are reasons why this diet isn’t realistic for many. Food cost, accessibility and practicality to name a few.
PLUS those under 2 or pregnant / breastfeeding women require something a lil different
AND this goes well beyond you and I just changing our Monday night meat feasts - some serious systemic changes are required.
HOWEVER there are good intentions here and given that our current food systems won’t handle our global population growth, we best start somewhere. -

RED MEAT 🐮
Hmm, controversial! Here are a few things to consider: ~ From a nutrition perspective, lean beef, lamb, goat, kangaroo and pork provide all of the essential amino acids (high quality protein), iron, selenium, zinc, B vitamins (and a pleasurable experience for the taste buds 😋) ~ On the other hand, recent work from the @EATfoundation has suggested that "Transformation to healthy diets by 2050 will require substantial dietary shifts. Global consumption of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes will have to double, and consumption of foods such as red meat and sugar will have to be reduced by more than 50%." 😮 The #EATlancet report then went on to suggest 0-28 grams of red meat per day (less than 200g per week) for the health of our bodies and the planet. 🌱
My take: ⬆This guidance oversimplifies the nutritional needs of individuals, but it's pretty cool that the connection between sustainable food systems and healthy diets is becoming more and more talked about 🌏
...
What do you think? Do you lean more towards a plant-based eating pattern or are you a meat-lover through and through?
Excited to speak at @Gulfood today, calling for greater #food diversity on our plates for more sustainable #foodsystems for people & planet! Thanks to @manalalalem & @chefalimandhry for joining a panel on @chefsmanifesto #Gulfood #ZeroHunger #2020for2020

Today is The United Nation's World Day of Social Justice, an annual observation that focuses on how social justice is a necessary component of any work towards economic equality and poverty eradication. At Puente, we believe that a holistic approach that includes healthy food systems, sustainable farming, and solidarity economy is a path towards justice and opportunity for rural communities in Oaxaca. ⠀

Hoy es el Día Mundial de la Justicia Social (ONU), una observación anual que se centra en cómo la justicia social es un componente necesario de cualquier trabajo hacia la igualdad económica. En Puente, creemos que un enfoque holístico que incluya sistemas de alimentación saludable, agricultura sostenible y economía solidaria (social) es un camino hacia la justicia y la oportunidad para las comunidades rurales de Oaxaca. ⠀ 📷 @fotorupert ⠀

If you are lucky enough to have tickets to the @evoke_ag event in Melbourne today be sure to meet @goterracbr CEO, and fellow founder of the Insect Protein Association of Australia, Olympia Yarger. She will be speaking in a couple of panels fyi.

Not only is this woman wickedly smart and funny, she will also talk straight about the opportunities offered by farming insects. With experience farming using waste streams, and the need to rethink how we grow food in this age of climate change, Olympia has alot of insight into where the sector could go, and won't give you baseless spin.

SPEAKER: She may not look like the average farmer with a sweat soaked Akubra, but this part grazier, part scientist and part innovator is standing on the precipice of a new world. Her eye firmly on the horizon - trained towards the year 2050, where the estimated world population is a swollen 9 billion people. Read about #evokeAG entrepreneur Olympia Yarger of @goterracbr in the latest edition of @graziher magazine. What an incredible story, beautifully written by @thewriteyogi.

A Foodie’s Guide to Capitalism by Eric Holt-Giménez | #goodfoodreads This book is a great primer in understanding the interconnedness between the US food system, US political and economic exploitation in other countries, and the migration patterns of people from South & Central America to the US that we see today which in turn causes even more exploitation and poverty.

Often, discussions around future food systems are centred around the role of insects as a source of protein to provide food to a growing population. However, the piece in the New York Times highlights the fact that insects have not escaped the scale and intensity of human impact on ecosystems. #sunday #longread FInd the article by searching for 'The insect apocalypse is here, New York times' Illustration: Matt Dorfman⠀

Coffee. Love it.

Also love cafes like @2doorsdowncafe_derby (best coffee in Derby!), and local coffee roasters @ritualcoffeetas who use fresh, great coffee, and let us collect the grounds to feed to our mealworms & woodies...and compost.

Another reason to ditch coffee pods (apart from the inferior taste & texture imho), is the needless #packaging, and you can't reuse or compost the coffee grounds. So much #wasted #nutrients for soil or insects.

Why does #fishwithastory matter? ⁣

Fish With A Story is about recognising fisher artisans who have a sincere connection with our food systems and oceans – giving a name and a voice to the very fisher who put the fish/seafood on your plate (often risking their life at sea to do so).⁣

It is about emphasising livelihoods, food security and poverty alleviation, balanced with responsibility and sustainability. It is about widening the lens to see the full picture: recognising the multifaceted roles of women in fisheries, and celebrating the socio-cultural fabric of families and communities of fisherfolk spanning generations.⁣

Fish with a story creates consciousness about how ‘socially fair’ and ‘ecologically responsible’ go hand-in-hand in the context of small-scale fisheries. It is about promoting ocean stewardship and recognising the human element. It is about transparency and the importance of full traceability in the seafood sector, depicting the full story from hook to cook. ⁣

WHO fishes is paramount. The fish on your plate has a story – choose to know the story and empower small-scale fishers with @abalobi_app ... ⁣

CHICKPEAS
~ (Garbanzo beans)
~ 1 cup of chickpeas has a third of your daily protein needs 😲 and a heap of prebiotics for those good gut bugs
~ Chickpeas = legumes ➡ put nitrogen back into the soil ➡ good for the planet 🌏 The Lancet medical journal has recently suggested we aim for 1 serve of legumes (3/4 cup) each day for our own health and the health of the planet
~ Should you be worried about lectins? Not unless your legumes are raw or undercooked. Slow cooking chickpeas may not bring the temperature high enough to breakdown the lectins, so make sure they boil for 10 minutes first, or use tinned chickpeas.
~ If you're #lowFODMAP, stick to 1/4 cup tinned chickpeas at a time
~ Hummus = 1 tin chickpeas + 1 tbsp tahini + 1 lemon juice + 1 clove garlic + extra virgin olive oil ➡ blended until smooth
WOOD you like to also feel confident with no makeup and have adequate skin and hair that grows so fast and strong you can see your summer highlights growing away? Try PLANTS 🌱 PLANTS fuel your body without the needless murder of sentient creatures like fish, cows, chickens, and pigs. PLANTS offer phytonutrients not found in animals’ bodies, and allow our body to be fuelled in a way that our anatomy favours! You’re smile will be wider and a you’ll have that vegan twinkle in your eyes knowing you thrive without destroying other beings and the planet, too. ✨
But wait, there’s more
For an unlimited time, you can TRY going vegan FREE for HOWEVER LONG YOU WANT. I tried it for 2 weeks almost exactly 4 years ago, and the changes were so amazing I haven’t stopped since. Google “Gary Yourofsky’s Greatest Speech You’ll Ever Hear” and “Dairy is Scary” on YouTube, then check out @nutrition_facts_org for videos on the health aspects of a plant based diet.
It’s not only a simply wonderful way to live, it’s necessary for the health of our planet, as most greenhouse emissions come from animal agriculture. It’s also the moral baseline to let nonhuman animal live their lives just as we wish to live ours 💁🏼‍♀️
Try it for a week. It’s really awesome. I promise.
Last week in our course ENVR 130 "Introduction to Sustainable Food Systems" students learned about the Colombian Exchange and the transfer of seeds and crops between the Old World (Europe, Asia, and Africa) and the New World (the America's). .
.
.
For the weekly assignment students chose a crop they love and did research on its origin story. Students researched a huge variety of crops including the sweet potato, garlic, avocado, cacao and many more. And for extra credit, they prepared te crop and submitted the recipe and a photo of them with the food. Yum!

Hey friends, big announcement! We're launching a crowd-funding campaign on @indiegogo next WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20TH!

In our efforts to make the world's greatest dog food, green tripe and treats, we need to expand our local facility in Carey, Idaho. We're talking about new pasture, bigger freezers, and more space for us to hand-craft Idahound's entire menu. We're growing from the ground up!

There's going to be nine tiers worth of rewards for funders, including treat combos, shirts and hats, year-long and lifetime discounts (seriously). Stay tuned next week for more updates. We can't wait to launch and spread the raw food stoke!

For the love of dogs,
Alec, Chris, and John David

We're proud to introduce ANOTHER paid student staffmember, Rachel Kovinsky. As Operations Associate, she'll be transitioning our accounting and inventory to new software platforms to give our student leadership access to the best possible data insights to guide our work!
In her own words: "I am a current senior at UC Berkeley, pursuing a major in American Studies and concentrating in Community Health & Food Systems. I am an L.A. Native, but am proud to call the Bay Area home. When not in class or working on my senior thesis, you can likely find me sitting in parks, hiking the Berkeley hills, or cooking with friends. I am passionate about supporting the health and well-being of cities and communities, and strongly believe that food systems play a critical aspect in doing so." Rachel's work is funded through a generous grant from the Student Tech Fund.

There are two types of people: those who do nothing to make the world a better place and those that do. Which do you want to be? To learn more about our upcoming short-course visit us here: https://ecothropic.com/accredited-study-abroad-cuba-sustainability-program-page
When you have a product that could have been done diy style at home, but instead put it thru production for display on shelf in a fluorescent lit commercial setting, it's going to look a bit goofy. #productlifecycle #cuisine #ingredients #pineappleofmyeye #packagingdesign #wellness #foodsystems #practicality #foodsupply #cookery 🍍 #seenwhileshopping

In graduate school, I was a member The Millet Project. We worked to bring ancient, underappreciated grains back into public awareness. We collaborated with farmers to learn how and where to grow millet in California, planting different varieties in diverse regional climates. We also held events and provided samples - even millet beer! - to introduce people to new grains.
There are a lot of challenges facing agriculture and food production. I enjoy exploring and learning about different approaches to solving some of these challenges.

In the first picture, I'm planting millet at the Gill Tract in Albany, CA. In the second picture, the Japanese Millet has reached maturity. In the third, we are giving public tours or our millet field. The fourth is of our vegetarian millet slider! Yummmmm.

Congrats to School of Sustainability alumnus Nathan Gassmann, who recently landed a job as @subway's manager of global sustainability. He said he’s excited to enact change at a large scale.

“Seven years ago I was working behind the counter on Mill Avenue making sandwiches, and by embracing all that the School of Sustainability has to offer and by pushing myself to get better every day, I'm now in a position where I can make a global impact — one sandwich at a time,” Nathan said. #ASUgreen

Today my Honors Class, studying Sustainable Food Systems, took a tour of Hood College’s dining hall to learn all the great things they are doing to reduce food waste. In 2018 Hood diverted 18,822 lbs of food waste from the landfill. We are now starting to watch Wasted, a story of food waste. You must see this documentary 👍🏼 @happeningathood @keycompost
