    Start thinking local, not global. Less stuff more life, right? When it comes to our food consumers are asking the tough questions. How does the food on my plate get all the way to my table? What’s my carbon footprint? Simply, where is this food coming from?!?! Now don’t get your stomach all tied up in a knot. There are simple solutions for consumers that want to take the next step in developing a more sustainable lifestyle.

    Two words, ‘Farmers Markets’. Get to know that husky farmer man, who turns his crops and can tell you what’s in season because he has actually touched the crop you are about to cut up and throw into your stir fry. Talk to the earth muffin who made that cheese that is going to make you melt. Choco-locate visited some unknown territory last weekend and hung out at the Evergreen Brick Works farmers market to get to know their local farmer and yes, tell people about our app.

'Film tells the not-so-sweet side of chocolate'

What do you think of when you think of chocolate? Decadence? Dieting? An industry rife with exploitation and labour abuses?

Toronto director Michael Allcock offers a peek at the various sides of chocolate in the new documentary Semisweet: Life In Chocolate, airing on TVO on June 6. The film tells four stories – of Ron Obadia and Nadine Artemis, two raw food enthusiasts; of employees who live and work in Hershey, Pa., known as “The Sweetest Place on Earth” and more.

Chocolate is rich in phenolics, the same heart protective antioxidants found in wine. Indulgence? I call it self preservation!
