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.
Fava beans and feta cheese salad
Fresh fava beans do not have fats and are recommended to fight physical weakness. Now it’s their season, so let’s eat them and get fibres, vitamins, minerals and energy!
300 g of fresh peeled fava beans
150 g of fresh green peas
200 g of Greek feta cheese
Juice of 1 lemon
fresh mint leaves
2 cloves of garlic
extra virgin olive oil
Boil the fava beans and the peas in salty water for 10 minutes. Drain them. In a large pan heat the oil and the garlic and add the boiled legumes. Cook for a few minutes and put them in a plate. Season with the lemon juice and add the chopped mint and dill. Blend. When the fava beans are lukewarm, add the crumbled feta cheese and the pepper. Blend and serve.
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.
Quality ingredients, no artificial colouring and hydrogenated fats. These are the main features of a great ice cream. But what makes an ice cream parlour “good”, i.e. sustainable?
