Meatless Monday Challenge


As an environmental scientist, I am always trying to highlight sustainable ingredients. Limes, when sourced locally, organically, and in season, are considered a sustainable crop.

Limes require a relatively low amount of land to grow and emit a very small amount of carbon.

Check when lemons are in season in your area with this Seasonal Food Guide.

It’s important to note that inorganic limes tend to use a high amount of pesticides and nitrogen fertilizers. Buy organic limes when you can to ensure that you are supporting farms that do not contribute to pollution in the form of pesticides.

It’s also best to buy limes without plastic packaging.

Limes are a common ingredient at Marley’s Menu in cocktails, desserts, and savory meals. Find all of our favorite lemon recipes here.
