My 5-day Meal Plan for another week of Lockdown

Ahead of next week I’m feeling all prepared and ready for another 5 days of eating. Having read a fair amount about food sustainability in the meantime, researching answers and details about meat, veganism and farming, I reworked this list quite a few times. Although food sustainability is in a very junior phase both globally and in the UK, I believe more and more people pay attention to what they eat.

To me the answer is moderation, more than a drastic diet change; besides carefully choosing where we source the ingredients from. To follow up on this idea of moderate red meat consumption, I’m introducing Meat-free Monday with a delicious Rigatoni Caprese, besides adding Salmon to the plan which I don’t usually eat in a pan-fried form. Times are changing, we are changing. We have to change to keep the World going – and as many other things, this one starts at home, too.
