The UK is being urged to go nuts for the environment by swapping burgers for bags
of nuts on Tuesday October 22nd 2013 to celebrate National Nut Day.
October 22nd is well-established as National Nut Day in the USA and the organisers
want Britain to ‘go nuts’ in the same way!
This year’s focus is on switching to nuts to help the environment. If we in the
UK eat less meat and highly processed veggie foods – our planet will benefit. This
will keep a lid on greenhouse gasses and won’t use up our valuable land resources.
For people who already eat plenty of meat and dairy products such as most people
in rich countries, nuts and ‘nutty’ legumes – like Brazil nuts, cashews, peanuts
and walnuts - are a good nutritional alternative to meat says Dr Donal Murphy-Bokern,
independent agri-environmental scientist and author of several studies on food system
