Resilient food

Applied to 2021 ALLFED Highlights by AronM at 19d

AlternativeResilient food (sometimes called alternative food or alternate food) is food that uses "non-solar energy inputs" and that could therefore be produced even if a catastrophe such as a nuclear war, supervolcano eruption, or asteroid impact causes abrupt change in the climate (Baum, Denkenberger & Pearce 2016; see also nuclear winter).  Examples of alternative foods could include mushrooms grown on trees or edible bacteria fed natural gases (Baum, Denkenberger & Pearce 2016).

Brian Tomasik's article on the amount of suffering produced by various animal foods is worth reading. If you're not willing to go vegan, it's probably a good idea to generally eat meat/animal products from larger animals, namely beef and milk. Since fewer animals are needed per unit of meat/food, these foods cause far less animal suffering. It may also be a good idea to eat less bread/rice/pasta/cereal and more beans, nuts, and potatoes.

4MichaelA5moHey Question Mark, this page is for behind-the-scenes Discussion of this wiki entry, rather than discussion of the topic. This is analogous to Wikipedia's Talk pages, which each say at the top: (Melodramatic example [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Adolf_Hitler].) Speaking of which, I'll talk to the moderators about maybe adding a banner like that to the top of these pages to avoid future confusion. (Also, this entry is about a specific type of alternative foods, not about things like veganism, though unfortunately the term that's currently used is pretty vague and ambiguous. Hopefully in future the common term will be "resilient foods" instead.)
