Accidental Locavore Food Trends 2017

How hip are you?

The Accidental Locavore has been inundated with emails predicting food trends for 2017.

Let’s look at some of them.

My gift to you is that this isn’t a slide show (you can thank me in the comments).

Food Trends to resolve to do:

  • Use all food! Food waste is a huge issue and you’re going to hear a lot about it this year.
  • Buy what you’re going to use. Use it.
  • Shop your freezer, fridge, cupboards, pantry. You’ll be surprised how much you can make without ever leaving the house. I made 23 dinners with just the stuff in my freezer.

Things trending that you might ACTUALLY make:Accidental Locavore Food Trends Poke

  • Bowls-grain, rice, porridge, poke. Put a bunch of vegetables, a carb and a protein in a bowl and you’re trendy. Extra points for poké (pronounced po-kay). A good way to use up small bits of things in your fridge.
  • Hey if you haven’t given up kale yet, you could be a newbie to cauliflower. Or if you really want to be cutting edge, skip down to jackfruit below.

Or cook with:

  • Sous-vide. I’ve had mine for a few years and love it. It’s the crockpot of the 21st
  • Or maybe it’s the Instapot.

Foods you might think about and eat but come on, you’re never actually going to DIY:

  • Fermented foods (from any number of sources). Imagine if everyone in your building started fermenting stuff. Click here for unscented Febreze.
  • Whey (to get this you have to make something else, like Greek yogurt) and then figure out what to do with it. I’ve marinated chicken in it—ho hum.
  • Vegetable chips (your own, not out of a bag)
  • Empanadas, dumplings etc. All good but labor intensive and someone in a restaurant near you does it better.

Interesting, never-happening options:Accidental Locavore Food Trends Jackfruit

  • Octopus – got a rock to pound it on? Didn’t think so.
  • Naan pizza. Why?
  • Fry bread. Ditto. Have you ever actually eaten the stuff? Think flattened, fried zeppole and you’re pretty much there. Going to go out on a politically incorrect limb here, but the Native Americans have not given us much to work with food-wise. Indian Pudding and frybread are two prime examples.
  • Jackfruit. Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to show up at your local supermarket. And when it does…

A couple of my predictions: Accidental Locavore Food Trends Coffee Cake

  • Coffeecake – oh, excuse me, breakfast cake. I’ve had my friend Alan’s mother’s coffeecake recipe on my mind lately. Time for breakfast comfort food?
  • The resurgence of junk food – look for the new White House Chef to be Colonel Saunders…

What do you think? Any food trends you’d like to add, or see the last of? Overplayed already?

A good way to make sure that your synthesis connection is practical is always to clarify it to another person. If you explain what you believe the text is and they obtain it, you’re possibly around the right course.

Naturally, doing so and demanding properly-established suggestions in a article format
demands plenty of model on paper, innovative effort,
time committed and spent on investigation thinking.

characteristic of great essays is that they lay out clearly within subjective or their release not merely what question what
their objective is, but in addition how it’s they will remedy the issue presented, or they are

I’ve always thought eating kale is like eating a sheet of vinyl…
Happy New Year!

I too hate food waste and am really TIRED of kale….after all, it is a weed. I am glad I am not alone anymore! Thanks Anne and Happy New Year!

If you heard my radio show a couple of weeks ago, the use by date is really just made up. There are no regulations as to use by dates. Smell and/or taste before you toss!
My go-to for leftover small pieces of cheese (if I don’t decide just to eat them) is mac & cheese. I probably wouldn’t do a completely blue cheese mac, but hey…

I’m not hip at all, but I love this particular blog as I am always throwing out food. If it’s past it’s date, it’s out even if only a day past. My goal this year is to consume all products before the expiration date. Won’t happen of course, but it’s a good goal.
I love different cheeses which is why I’m always the cheese person at parties. I would love to see a blog about how to cook with left over Stilton, Roquefort, Bousin, or even Danish Blue. I’m good with cheddars and Swiss type cheeses, but I’m always throwing out the more pungent leftover party cheeses.
Please Help!
Bernadette.
