Like I said, there’s good news. So grab that mash, heck, fries too. Potatoes even produce a compound that turns off pests, thus they need less pesticide. 

2. Beans

Dried beans stay happier on the shelf, and that’s a big plus from where we’re standing. Swap your steak for some plant protein and the environment will thank you. 

3. Peas

 

Oh, Sweet pea. Look how good you are for the environment! Peas produce nitrogen, which keeps the soil healthy. 

4. Organic Apples 

Apples require so little water to grow. So guess what? You can have the last slice of Apple Pie. Yes, you can. 

5. Sardines 

These tiny fish are low on the food chain, which means they use lesser resources to exist. So make yourself a Sardine Sandwich for work tomorrow.
