My name is Joana. I am based in Lisbon and work as a freelancer in recipe development, food styling and photography. I also love sharing a bit of my lifestyle and healthy recipes on my website Please Consider and through social media @joanamlimao. I love the sun, walks in nature and long days at the beach.
Q: What made you adopt a more sustainable lifestyle?
My journey brought me to a place where I believe it is both our right and duty to live in harmony with our planet, in all the ways we can. And I try to follow that principle a little bit every day.
Q: If you could share only one tip for someone who is trying to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle, what would it be?
If you really need to buy, buy local.
Q: As a sustainable lifestyle inspiration, what is your biggest goal?
I don’t consider myself an influencer, but if I can inspire just one person to eat healthier, that makes me happy.
Q: Do you have any stories of people that you have influenced into becoming more sustainable?
I think that my mom is a beautiful example of someone who is changing her lifestyle little by little, from buying in bulk to using fabric bags when shopping, to preferring local sourdough over processed bread... She is implementing new lifestyle changes slowly but regularly and having great success! Yeah, mom!
