Recipe For Survival: How What We Eat Affects the Environment

We only have one earth and we must take care of it and all its earthlings.  Many people know that fossil fuels contribute to climate change, but few know that the foods we eat contribute significantly to climate change and environmental degradation.  To learn more about this along with several ideas on how to be more sustainable, listen to “Recipe For Survival: How What We Eat Affects the Environment.”

Dr. Dana Ellis Hunnes is a clinical dietitian at RR-UCLA Medical Center. She completed her Ph.D. at UCLA studying climate change, public health, and food security and advocates for environmentally friendly and sustainable diets through talks and in her writing.  Her book, “Recipe For Survival: What You Can Do to Live a Healthier and More Environmentally Friendly Life” with Cambridge University Press is due out in January 2022.
