Factory farming conditions and antibiotic-resistant pathogens emerging as a result of them pose an existential threat to humans in the form of zoonotic diseases. Why it’s time to produce and consume food more thoughtfully.
Daikon and carrot salad with peanut sauce
The daikon and carrot salad with peanut sauce and tofu is a light winter meal.
Ingredients for the daikon and carrot salad with peanut sauce
1 medium-size daikon
2 cup of mixed sprouts
200 g of tofu
2 spoonful of sesame seeds
For the sauce:
1/2 a cup of peanut butter (if you’re allergic, choose a different type of seed butter)
4 spoonful of lemon juice
1 teaspoonful of honey
2 spoonful of tamari
2 teaspoonful of fresh grated ginger
Clean the daikon and the carrots and peel them. Cut them into julienne, or grate them. Wash the soy sprouts. Combine in a bowl the daikon, carrots and sprouts. Dice the tofu and add it to the salad. Add parsley and sesame seeds.
To prepare the sauce combine all the ingredients. Serve the salad with the peanut sauce.
Daikon helps burn fat in different parts of your body if you eat it fresh as well as if you eat it dried.
The world of cinema recognises the link between food choices and the climate crisis by offering vegan menus for awards season events, including at the most important of them all: the Oscars.

In an increasingly uncertain world, we need food production systems that can cope with dramatic climatic variations, provide nutritious diets, and build the resilience of communities and landscapes.
Mint has many health benefits, but in food it’s often accompanied by artificial green colourings. Instead, Galatea has created a green mint ice cream in a completely natural way.
We’re talking about Galatea, a company that produces semi-finished products for artisanal ice creams using high quality ingredients, natural colouring, excluding thickeners and hydrogenated fats, respecting the environment and supporting the less fortunate.
The mad rush to fake food, like fake meat made with genetically-modified soy, ignores the importance of the diversity of our foods and culinary cultures. It’s a recipe to accelerate the destruction of the Planet and our health.
Like with all foods, the quality of an ice cream can be discerned by reading its label. An expert explains how to do this, and tells us how their company steers clear of chemicals, using only natural ingredients to produce an excellent and “free” ice cream.
