How can we practice food sustainability at home?
To practice sustainable home cooking can be depending on your lifestyle, where you live, your economic situation, your sustainability goal and your dietary needs.
Here are some suggestions:
> experience simple home farming such as growing own ginger
> purchase food from local, familiar farms that don't have to be transported from overseas
> reduce food wastage such as using vegetable scraps in soups and stocks
> Adopt a plant-based diet by minimizing consumption of farm-raised fish, meat and diary

Why use sustainable home cooking compared with store bought?
Store bought refers to food items that are commercially made rather than homemade. Processed foods or pre-made meals or takeout tend to be higher in sodium, fat and sugar contents.
By practicing sustainable home cooking, it allows you to have full control on what you should fill your plate with. More cost saving, more nutritious - from sourcing sustainable ingredients, use less energy, waste less food, leave out processed sugar or fatty ingredients.
