How can your pizza make the world a better place?

According to studies, we spend from 30 to 50% of our family budget only on food, and in half the cases we eat out. As food consumers, we are a formidable force in deciding which products and ingredients we choose and their origin.

We buy ingredients, add salt, sugar and fats to them and get what we call our diet.
But besides our personal and family health, our choice of dishes affects a wide range of global and domestic problems:
farming methods for growing our food affects the environment;
shops and restaurants that sell products and services to us determine the development of the local economy, the volume of imports of products;
food brands and the companies from which we buy products often have global reach, and this can touch on issues of international hunger, obesity, climate change, and even global security and trade.

One typical buyer who runs into a cafe to grab pizza with soda can have an effect on the remuneration of workers who are forced to do their slave labor for practically nothing, on the crisis in the wheat market and the preventive use of antibiotics in dairy cows, which frighteningly increases the chances of new, sustainable super infections that people can get.
Oh yes, we also spend incredible amounts on soft drinks, which allow companies to continue to sell sweet water so that more and more children suffer from obesity worldwide.

But let’s imagine that we could use our food expenses, aiming to rectify this situation.
You can start with pizza made from organic whole grains or mixed grains that will be healthier for your family and farmers who grow them, helping these farmers get rid of the billion tons of pesticides that are used every year and jeopardize our air, land and water .
Tasty tomatoes grown in cottages or in personal plots can be found in every farmer’s market; summer residents and farmers who grow them can help combat unsustainable monocultures in the fields.
Local cheeses help revitalize regional dairy farms and keep small and medium-sized dairies afloat. In addition, choosing natural cheese you avoid those antibiotics and growth hormones that are used in the industrial production of cheese on large farms.

Just imagine that one dinner with such pizza can make a shift towards more healthy people in your family, as well as a healthy planet. So put on your apron and occupy your kitchen. And we consumers will change the world for the better.
