Of course, we are talking about French cuisine, so, take this with a grain of salt…unless you are in New York City, then Mayor Bloomberg might come for you with fully automatic assault rifles
Background: Healthy diets are supposed to be more environmentally friendly because they rely mainly on plant-based foods, which have lower greenhouse gas emissions (GHGEs) per unit weight than do animal-based foods. (big snip)
Conclusion: Despite containing large amounts of plant-based foods, self-selected diets of the highest nutritional quality are currently not those with the lowest diet-related GHGEs.
But, still, eating healthy is still not a bad idea.
