The word climatarian appears for the first time in 2015, when the New York Times decided to include the neologism in the list of new words. Years later, this term is starting to spread in Italy as well and climatarian is the person who contributes to the fight against climate change through their diet. Along with vegetarianism and veganism, the demand for plant-based foods for environmental choices will be a growing trend over the next 10 years (33%) .
If you are still wondering how to cook vegan to update your offer, take a step further and ask yourself: how to propose a greener menu? We give you some food for thought.

Study the climate diet before updating the menu

Research is an important moment in the innovation process, even when it comes to the offer of a venue. If you believe that climate changers don't eat meat, for example, you'd better dig deeper because the answer is controversial.

1. Some climate changers also like meat

In fact, some people who follow a low environmental impact diet appreciate meat but avoid red meat or meat from intensive farms. The motivation that drives climate changers to follow the diet is based on the assumption that high percentages of global CO2 emissions are attributable to cattle breeding. So animal meat that comes from conscious and more environmentally friendly productions is alternated with alternative solutions such as fake meat .

2. A lot of ingenuity to reduce food waste to little

Since they are attentive to the environmental impact of their choices, climate activists want to limit food waste with their actions. To bring value to your establishment, tell us about your initiatives to reduce inventories and leftovers , such as activating a Too Good To Go subscription ; precisely calculate the food cost; or choose to aim for energy savings with cooking only on demand .

3. We are all a bit of a climate change

Regardless of the environmentalist choice, the demand for healthy food has grown in recent years. An example of this is the market of vegetable products with a hamburger flavour, which above all satisfy those who eat meat, such as the Green Heros by Salomon FoodWold , a brand that we always recommend combining with our Combi Wave and Combi Wave Smart ovens.
With the innovative green line you can expand your offer to offer pleasant experiences to a diversified and demanding clientele. We have tested three new solutions with Techfood ovens, even in the absence of a flue. The result is a certainty of the Combi Waves: perfect cooking in half the time compared to a traditional oven.
The Green Heroes Homestyle Burger, for example, is ready in 1 minute and 40 seconds with Combi Wave and in 2 minutes and 20 seconds with Combi Wave Smart. Tender and juicy just like a beef burger, it's a burger that everyone loves.
For those who are fans of the chicken sandwich, there is Green Heroes Crunchy Chik'n Burger. Indistinguishable from the original, it is prepared with the same times as the Green Heroes Homestyle Burger but also has a cornflake breading that is crunchy and not oily thanks to the oil-free frying of the Combis .
While the Green Heroes has a 100% green heart even in appearance. It's a medallion of kale, spinach and broccoli blended with oats, and it cooks up even faster. 1 minute with Combi Wave and 1 minute and 50 seconds with Combi Wave Smart .
Up until a few years ago, it would have been strange to think of fake meat, but now there is no menu that does not dedicate at least one item to it. And there's no chef who doesn't wonder how to cook vegan, even the Tuscan Simone Rugiati has chosen to test himself with plant-based meat for a vegan burger ready in 2 minutes.
