Augmenting a vegan diet with fish is becoming a popular approach to healthy eating. But what about its environmental impact?
The Waitrose Food & Drink Report is out, an annual summary of how the nation has been spending its money on food. Although, of course, it is not the entire nation, just that part of it that shops at Waitrose. As usual, it is full of surprises. Did you know that customers have bought a head-turning 700% more tahini this year? Or that seaganism – with its attendant seacuterie (salmon pastrami, swordfish ham) – is now a thing?
Both these things point to the report’s most salient trend: in a bid to eschew packaging, we are making more stuff from scratch (tahini + chickpeas = hummus), and we are tending towards – but not entirely committing to – vegan eating.
