- I'm just so tired of all the boring food with meat.
- It does not taste of anything.
that is How it sounds from Kirsten at 99 years of the constant kødfokusering, she believes the communal meals on wheels in Portarlington, like so many other public kitchens - to.
Kirsten is not a vegetarian, but she has always been fond of green food, and as a Jewish daughter was visiting for the weekend, stood the communal menu - yet again - on a large piece of meat (hamburgerryg) with three potatoes and a white sauce with asparagus.
- There was no prepared vegetable dishes, and the only thing that came in the vicinity of the nutritious, green food was a fruit salad and a small side dish with corn and peas.
- I would rather eat vegetarian, as my grandchildren, " says Kirsten, who therefore supports a very popular borgerforslag that just about all public kitchens, shall have a green/kødfrit alternative. In the proposal, there is missing just under the 40,000 support, to achieve Folketingssalen - sounds bl.a. there is plenty of money to spare to think more green:
- It will benefit the economy to provide the ability to select plant-based diet in the public kitchens.
- It is well documented that the more plant-based diet reduces the incidence of bl.a. cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and diabetes, all of which are a big financial strain on the health care system.
Researchers from Oxford University estimates that the world can save 700 billion US dollars a year in health costs (direct and indirect, including lost working days) if the diet follows the Who's recommendations (Oxford University 2016).
- A plant-based option in the public kitchens will contribute to the uk reaps such socio-economic improvements.
- in Addition, it will help Denmark to live up to agreed climate targets, as well as benefit the environment and animals both nationally and globally.
- this Proposal is about ensuring the freedom of choice of green alternatives. Today live approx. 100.000 citizens, vegetarian, and a further approx. 372.000 citizens live predominantly vegetarian (Coop Analysis, 2017). The figures are more than doubled, from 2010 to 2017, and the trend is even more pronounced among young people under 35, where it is 12 %, which live predominantly or completely vegetarian, writes the people behind the proposal, but what do you say?
