Here’s an Earth Day challenge for you: Eat. Eat a lot. And, specifically, eat a lot of these 11 foods, which are actually doing the planet a favor every time they find their way into your shopping. How is that possible? Because instead of simply consuming more water, pesticides, or fossil fuels like most highly processed foods in modern American diets, these foods support healthy ecosystems while they’re doing your body good. They help farmers stick with traditional, planet-friendly farming practices while discouraging toxic chemicals that pollute you and your drinking water.
So this Earth Day, revamp your diet with these über-nutritious, tree-hugging foods.
