Climate Change Could Change Your Shopping List

Business Insider has a report that lists seven foods that could go extinct thanks to climate change. They could become more expensive and eventually disappear.

Avocados - The biggest threats to avocados are rooted in environmental issues linked to climate change: hot weather and droughts have caused problems everywhere from California to Australia. Avocados are weather-sensitive and slow growing — making them especially susceptible. 

Coffee - A report from the nonprofit Climate Institute concluded that the area around the world fit for coffee production would decrease by 50% due to climate change and already has made coffee crops more vulnerable to diseases. 

Five more foods that could disappear…

The Vegetarians Are Coming, Be Prepared!

Grocerants and prepared foods departments take note of the growing number of vegetarians and vegans as you design menus.

Where as once vegans and vegetarians may have been thought of as a "hippie" stereotype, the choice to follow this diet is emerging more and more in shoppers and for a variety of reasons. It's not just the animal lover that turns to a plant-based diet these days. Health benefits, sustainability, and cost are strong motivators as well.

Should You Bring Organic Wine to Your New Year's Party?

If you're trying to decide on whether or not you should buy organic wine, here's your 101 on organic production, the different types of certification, and self-sustaining biodynamic wine.

What you need to know: Organic wine is made from the same grapes, grown in the same regions, and in the same way that wine has been made for thousands of years. The only difference is that the soil in which the grapes are grown has to be free from non-organic pesticides, chemicals, etc. for a three-year minimum.

Phil's Food Reviews

Nasoya Organic Tofu Vegetable Dumplings is a HIT!

You will love these. I pan-fried them with just 2 tablespoons of olive oil and wow. I tasted them plain and the flavor and texture are perfect. Seven dumplings are just 6 grams of fat, 260 calories, 11 grams of protein and 1 gram of sugars - but does have 660 mg of sodium, please lower that! Watch my full review.
