The Latest Food Trend

by updated 2012/03/18

I just read an article that listed all the latest food trends, not just food being eaten, but trends in using food for any health purpose.  This is a annual topic the media covers and usually the bulk of the trends are amusing, odd, or surprising.  This year things are apparently different.  Gone are the miracle uses of food like results obtained from using avocado as a hair treatment after washing. (That one forever seemed tame to me after reading about all the people who were smearing bull semen in their hair!)  No olive oil and salt pastes for your face this year either.  No recommendation to drink 10 cups of green tea every day or drink a daily 32 oz green shake.  No Yerba Mate, Cocoa Nibs, “Ugli” Fruit, pickled snake head fish, Quorn, or burdock on this list.

I mean what normal person likes burdock anyway?  I don’t care how healthy it is, burdock is the favorite food of the lovely Ghost Moth larvae.  That tells me all I need to know about whether its health benefits are worth the swallowing effort.  So let’s dispense with the suspense, what is on this year’s list?

Click here to reveal the amazing answer... and the rest of this post.

This year’s big food trend is… Food. Normal, real, food.          

Well as my daughter used to say… “Duh… double duh”.

The latest food trends on this year’s list include yogurt, fruits and vegetables, organic meat and dairy, minimally processed baby food, granola, wild salmon and other types of non-polluted fish, nuts, and raw milk.  The biggest responses people gave when asked what food changes they had made in the past year were along the line of “eating less processed food” and “eating more ‘real’ food”.

Maybe we are making progress.

I guess people are finally getting the message about a good balanced diet of healthy fod. I am joining the trend too as that has been my biggest change in the last 8 months. More whole foods & less processed, especially NO fast food from junk food outlets. I weakened & had a Hungry Jack’s (Burger King outside Australia) chicken & bacon burger for the 1st time in months a couple of weeks ago & I felt so bloated & sick after it.

That’s great Tony! You know once in a while won’t hurt. A couple of weeks ago I took my two daughters out to a place called Red Robin. Ate my fill of onion rings, fries, a vanilla shake, and large blue cheese burger. As long as it is only a few times a year thing I feel fine about it. But some eat like that or worse every day. That is what will catch up with you!

That is a very pleasing trend indeed. Maybe the message is getting through at long last.

Sorry Will; I’ve eaten burdock for years. Not that it’s especially inspiring food; it’s more texture than flavour. But it’ll sure get things moving, if you get my drift.

A typical lunch could be two course meal of salad with olive oil as a dressing, and a meat dish such as tuna empanadas. Boiled eggs, asparagus, artichoke, tomato, olives, and soy beans are typical vegetables for the salad.
With any meal, a glass of red wine is usually taken.
The intake of wine and olive oil make this diet great for your heart.

Real, sensible food? It’s a trend that won’t last, surely! There’s not much money in it for one.
