GREENS ARE GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH
“The evolution of vegetarianism is very evident as its influence is present in day-to-day meals. As a passionate and caring hospitality brand, it gives us the responsibility and opportunity to showcase a dining experience that emphasizes the concern of the people and the planet that caters for those dining out for a special occasion,” said the Executive Chef of Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
By reducing meat consumption, we can help reverse the adverse effects of global warming and preserve our natural biodiversity. Food production from farm to plate can account for approximately 30% of total global greenhouse gas emissions. This means even minor changes in our diet can have a positive impact on the environment. A meatless diet has been shown to have numerous health benefits, including a lower risk of developing various diseases.
A meatless diet will reduce the intake of saturated fats and cholesterol, lowering the risk of diabetes, heart diseases as well as food-borne illnesses that can be carried over from meat and seafood products. Eating vegetarian meals will also aid in the regulation and improvement of gut health, which is essential for our daily functioning.
