Today I would like to focus on food, on Veganism and Vegetarianism to be specific. There are many advantages and reasons for Vegansim and Vegetarianism that have convinced me years ago to change my diet, one of them is sustainability.
As some of you might know, the food consume of the human race is at it’s peak. Different studies have shown, that if we keep on consuming in this scale, by 2050 the amount of two more planets will be needed to feed everyone. As you can see: a big dilemma, unless we discover those two planets within the next 38 years.
Luckily, today Bridge was presented with the solution to this problem: The Dutch Weed Burger. A plant based burger with a very unconventional main ingredient: seaweed. This is what it looks like:
This short video is a trailer about the making of The Dutch Weed Burger and it’s two inventors:
You might wonder now: who are these two crazy Dutch people and how did you find them?
To “celebrate” the Dutch sustainability day, Lisette Kreischer, known for Veggie in Pumps and several cook books and her partner in crime, the film maker Mark Kulsdom, presented the concept of their new veggie burger. The presentation was inspiring, entertaining and informative and actually convinced the non Vegetarian members of Bridge to try out this mysterious super burger. Conclusion: DELICIOUS!
