Explore different healthy tastes


Did you know there are 30,000 edible plants in the world? Take some time in the kitchen to try new recipes or give old ones your own creative whirl to diversify your palate and your food source.

Certain ingredients leave more environmental damage than others. And with global diets becoming more homogenised, we’ve been accustomed to frequently eating meat which has the most carbon footprint among all food products.

Experiment on how you can pair your greens with less meat or low-impact meat like chicken, eggs and pork. You will be surprised with the simple ingredients that can make delicious, interesting and rich dishes for you and your loved ones.

Besides using new ingredients, you can also explore proper cooking appliances to make variety of dishes for sustainable eating. Make them tastier with the Electrolux built-in oven’s SteamPro that uses steam, alongside heat, to lock in all the juiciness so you can enjoy crispy yet succulent food.

Easy on the food waste


To put things in perspective, food production emits so much greenhouse gases partly because it’s a basic necessity. But when this produces food that is never eaten, it’s even more pressing. The average household throws away around 11% of their consumable food in a year — making private households the biggest contributors to global food waste. But this is avoidable.

It starts with preparing food properly and making sure it’s finished down to the last morsel. But you don’t need to be a chef to perfect cooking. Therefore, to develop a healthy and sustainable eating habit, investing in an induction cooker with precise and flexible heat can help you in the preparation and preservation of food nutrition. In addition, an induction cooker is a safe, clean and energy-saving choice for a sustainable lifestyle. One of the types of induction cookers that meet the above criteria, is the UltimateTaste 700 induction hob.

The FlexiBridge function in our induction hob makes cooking more convenient. The three layout options provide more flexibility for when you're using a variety of pots and pans at the same time. Intuitive touch controls also allow for more flexibility in heat control so you get the most precise temperature — from simmering to boiling — almost instantly.


While lifestyle modifications can be pushed by motivation or habits, the secret lies in the systems that you have to build so you can “trick” yourself into adopting change. These include the tools and technology — like Electrolux home appliances solutions — that make your sustainable and healthy eating simpler, more fun and more efficient for you to change not only yourself, but also the world.

In Electrolux, we always appreciate sustainable development throught sustainable diet. Know our strong commitment to sustainable eating here.
