Sustainable Living-Why Plant-Based is the Future Diet

If we were to colonize some place like Mars, what would be the smartest thing to do for food?

Should we use few resources to create a sustainable green house in which we could grow plants that provide us very nutritional food.

OR

Should we use 100x more resources to grow 10x as many plants, but not eat any of these plants. Feed all of these plants to animals, animals which will require 50x as much land and resources and will create a ton of waste; and when we finally kill these animals it will only give us a fraction of the calories and nutrition that the plants would have given us.

And each pound of beef takes 2,500 gallons of water to produce. 477 gallons for 1 pound of eggs. 900 gallons of water for 1 pound of cheese. 1,000 gallons for 1 gallon of milk.

2-5 acres of land per cow. 80% of our antibiotics used on livestock. (https://www.cowspiracy.com/facts)

And the list goes on and on.

So, which one do you think is more sustainable?
