Rounding out your diet with foods that are both healthy and good for the environment can sometimes be challenging. When you’re short on time, foods that come in individual wrapped servings can be a lifesaver, but in the long run they produce a lot of unnecessary waste.
Similarly, if you grab a quick bite at your local coffee shop on your way to work or throughout the day, you could be doing your body harm with foods that zap your energy rather than restore it. Though a Frappuccino and coffee cake might give you a much-needed jolt at 9 a.m., it’s going to result in a sugar crash not long afterwards.
Check out this infographic to help identify which foods in your diet are depleting your energy, and to see some healthier and more well-rounded options that you can easily substitute them for.
