Nuts for Cheese
I made an impulse purchase at Dad’s Organic Market on Saturday – a Smoky Artichoke and Herb Cashew-based Vegan Cheese made in southern Ontario by Nuts for Cheese. On looking at the bill, I discovered it was super expensive (don’t ask!), but it’s so tasty that I may well buy it again. It spreads well, has lots and lots of flavour, and is made from real food not chemicals. I highly recommend it.
Regenerative Organic Certification
As organic food has become more popular, its production has expanded from small family farms to large multinationals, raising concerns that wide-scale production isn’t sustainable. An alliance is now promoting regenerative organic certification, which requires growers to focus on soil health and carbon sequestration.
