Savings: Chicken and fish often cost less than red meat. The price for one kilogram of beef is about 30 euros, one kilogram of turkey costs 15 euros and a kilogram of white beans just 3 euros.
Remember this: We often put minced meat or sausage on our plate out of habit. After a few weeks of practice, it will get easier to choose better sources of protein.
Reducing your carbon footprint: Switching from red meat to fish or chicken five times a week can reduce your carbon footprint by 3% a year. Emissions are lower because of decreased greenhouse gas emissions from ruminant animals.
