The thing about trends is that they are a part of an endless cycle. It's kind of their thing.
Even—especially—when it comes to food.
Quinoa? Who's that? Acai bowls? What are they? A thing of the past, that's what. Since 2017 has officially kicked off, more and more yearly trend predictions are emerging, and food trends are at the front.
Made a New Year's resolution to eat a bit healthier in 2017? Never really got into kale anyway? Try incorporating one or more of these trendy health foods into your diet.
Good morning! Starting off this chilly day with a warm bowl of Amaranth porridge simmered in @drinkmaple maple water with a little unsweetened almond milk and topped with more almond milk, @bigsliceapples blueberry pomegranate kettle cooked apples, chopped @schermerpecans pecans, coconut flakes and hemp seeds. So warming on such a cold day!
Throw away all of your rice. Apparently amaranth has nearly ten times the protein and fiber.
This root vegetable is similar to taro in that it's purple-hued and adds a subtly sweet flavor to food (or ice-cream, as the case may be).
These lil dudes are one of my most favorite vegetable in the entire known universe. Even if I traveled back in time to before they were a "thing" and I luckily found a seed, somehow. I'd plant it, wait til it matured and produced healthy crops, then I'd harvest them, then I would roast the hell out of them in #grapeseedoil #blackpepper #chili #dill and then baste them in #spicybbq and #pistachio once removed from the oven. #brusselsprouts
Olive oil, you had your time to shine. Grapeseed and flaxseed oils allow you to cook at higher temperatures and are quite a bit cheaper.
It's #GetInTheKitchenWeek at @hedleyandbennett and I'm proposing some challenges. #1: cook with an ingredient you've never used before! I got down with espelette chiles + #spigarello, a frilly green that tastes like kale AND broccoli all at once. Check out the rest of my challenge/interview on their site (link in profile). Show me what you got salad freaks!
Kale? Is that you? Oh, no. Sorry. My mistake. It's spigarello, the Italian green that's the lovechild of broccoli and kale.
Sauerkraut is a two-ingredient side dish or meal addition that has serious digestive-system benefits. You can easily make it yourself in a mason jar by fermenting cabbage in salted brine.
Will these trends survive until 2018? Stay tuned.
