Epicurious is changing up its diet to help battle climate change. The online food publication announced Monday that it has "cut out" beef. The ingredient will no longer show up in new recipes, articles, newsletters, or social media posts.
The move is implied to be "pro-planet," since beef production makes huge amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. Livestock accounts for about 15% of total worldwide greenhouse gas emissions, and beef is the biggest contributor to that pollution, according to the United Nations.
The publication has been moving in this course for about two years. Since the fall of 2019, Epicurious has distributed beef recipes "only a small handful of times."
A quick look at the site shows that it has also been advertising readers recommendations for beef alternatives for some time. Old beef recipes will stay on the website but will not be highlighted on its homepage, Epicurious said.
