EDITOR'S NOTEOrilliaMatters is partnering with Sustainable Orillia to publish a weekly energy tip. Check back here every Tuesday evening for a new tip. For more information, visit the Sustainable Orillia website.

Who knew that eating meatloaf, hamburgers, and steaks was bad for future generations? Twenty years ago, no one, that’s who.

But now we know. We know that raising millions of cattle to produce beef is one of the primary sources of greenhouse gases (GHGs).

So changing our diets becomes one way we can make our way of life more sustainable. And face it, it also shrinks our food bill, making our weekly or monthly income ALSO more sustainable.

Work at this. Substitute other meats for beef (see the “Glory Bowl” recipe online). Better? Plan a couple of meatless meals each week.
