Eat a healthy diet

The way we eat is one of the factors that has the biggest impact on the planet. From the choice of ingredients to food waste, there are so many variables that can influence the environment. Barcelona is a city with a rich and varied cuisine, and the Mediterranean diet is at the forefront, meaning that there are many options that reduce the impact and offer quality, flavoursome and healthy food.

At the restaurants specialising in Catalan cuisine you'll be able to sample the most traditional, local dishes. You'll find a multitude of restaurants serving market-fresh dishes made with a wide variety of fresh, seasonal produce that has just arrived from the vegetable gardens, forests and sea. The sea and vegetable gardens take centre stage at the restaurants specialising in Mediterranean cuisine. There are restaurants serving dishes made with locally sourced, zero carbon ingredients from producers within a 100 kilometre radius of the city. Lovers of organic food can choose from a selection of restaurants serving dishes made with organic produce and ingredients that haven't been treated with chemicals that harm the environment and people's health. And if you've opted for a vegetarian diet, there's a great choice of restaurants serving vegetarian dishes.

There are also restaurants in Barcelona that have been specially designed for people with food intolerances, such as restaurants for coeliacs. There are also restaurants that are fully adapted for people with limited mobility. Whichever one you choose, it will be healthy and sustainable.
