In a new feature on the #WeekendBreakfast, Phemelo Motene chats to chef and owner of Lexi's Healthy Eatery, Lexi Monzeglio about sustainable living and a plant-based diet.
Monzeglio says that she launched the eatery because she was trying to establish a sustainable approach towards eating.
Being 100% sustainable in South Africa is near impossible adds Monzeglio.
She says that if you don't have enough money and time then sustainability starts to become a huge issue.
A plant-based lifestyle is probably one of the most sustainable ways to live says the chef.
If you reduce your meat-intake by one day a week, you're already reducing your water consumption and benefiting the environment she adds.
I've been following a plant-based lifestyle for a couple of years now, and the gap was just so obvious.— Lexi Monzeglio, chef and owner of Lexi's Healthy Eatery
Monzeglio says that there are very few vegan-friendly places with options.
She adds that Vegan has become a buzzword in 2018.
One of my biggest things about life is that as soon as you're feeling deprived - you're not doing it right.— Lexi Monzeglio, chef and owner of Lexi's Healthy Eatery
