Food trends change from year to year and sometimes day to day. Are these new ideas here to stay or will they be gone tomorrow?
Until the Industrial Revolution in the mid 1700's, peoples' lives didn't change much. During one person's lifetime, not much was new. One year was pretty much the same and "things have always been that way".
You probably would agree that the world seems to be running fast and changing constantly. The next new thing. I remember when the first pizza delivery place opened in our town, and I'm not THAT old!
Go ahead and google "food trends" and you will find many lists of new ideas. Chiefs are creative in combining ingredients to produce new tastes. Food even has it's own television channel.
Vegetarian meals go back to the caveman. Until fire was discovered (yuk, raw meat) we ate what nature gave us.
Some new ideas are just words. An article stated that companies are using "pure" instead of "natural" because they can't define "natural". Can you define "pure".
Seniors are more important now with the baby boomers getting up there. The EU has new regulations on labeling to help the elderly understand nutritional information. You should buy your groceries from local growers at a farmer's market or food truck.
Beer micro-brews are the next new thing with most restaurants now marketing the fact that they carry "50 Microbrews!"
I'm all for trying new things. The old standbys may get boring. Most of the new ideas are actually a good thing.
Eating nutritional food is still my goal. Moderation is the name of the game. Small changes can make all the difference. Although I might try canning pickels. Pickels are on the list for next year!
