This is how you prepare a sustainable sandwich!

we've reflected on the idea that if a sandwich can be integrated into a well-rounded diet, it can also be a sustainable option through planetary diets!

What do we mean by this?

This style of eating involves consuming foods produced under sustainable conditions to preserve the planet while maintaining a correct diet.

In a symbolic representation, this recommendation looks like a divided plate: the first half primarily consists of fruits and vegetables, while the other includes whole grains, plant-based proteins such as beans, lentils, legumes, and nuts, modest amounts of animal protein such as chicken, fish, or eggs, dairy products, as well as starchy vegetables.

There's more to it! Planetary diets also have a lower environmental impact. In addition to reducing carbon emissions, they use fewer resources, such as water, contributing to food safety for future generations.

Here are a few tips for preparing your planetary sandwich:


Choose whole wheat or multigrain bread: These are made from whole grains! 

Protein: Include plant-based proteins like tofu or hummus, or lean animal proteins such as chicken, fish, or eggs, while limiting the consumption of red meats.

Add fresh, seasonal vegetables: Local, seasonal vegetables have a lower carbon footprint. Tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, and avocado are excellent choices.

Dairy: You can also include some type of cheese to enhance the flavor.

Homemade dressings: Make your own dressings with fresh ingredients, such as mustard and olive oil.

From November 3rd to November 10th, all GB associates can participate in creating recipes for planetary sandwiches on Viva Engage. Stay tuned for Sandwich Day communication for more details.
