I recently had some kitchen conversations (via web chat) about food trends with Land O’Lakes and some lovely fellow food bloggers. It was a diverse group of foodies and so interesting to see their food trend picks for 2013. I have never been trendy in any sense but it always fascinates me to see all the trends of today, especially in food.
Ree, The Pioneer Woman, was first to share her food trend — MEATBALLS! I immediately laughed, not at her food trend, but because I have never made them and all I could imagine were mine tasting like meatloaf. She was quick to comfort my fears though.
- What does A Spicy Perspective foresee? – Comfort Food Gone Global I’m all about comfort food!!
- A Farmgirl’s Dabbles sees Whole Grains taking over your pantry. We have even incorporated more whole grains ourselves!
- The Little Kitchen sees Asian Influences taking the world by storm!
- Two Peas and Their Pod is all about POPCORN! Gourmet popcorn with your own creative spins on them like twix caramel. *drool*
I don’t know what the food trends will be all over this world but I do know what they’ll be here in the Falcon household, and that’s healthier dinners. As a beef eating, ranch family, we don’t exactly eat just real healthy you know? If you’ve been following along, then you’ve seen how we’ve been incorporating more Land O’Lakes Saute Express instead of gobs of butter like we’d normally do. Don’t get me wrong, we will still keep our fridge stocked with regular butter for baking, breads, etc but when we can use something low calorie that has butter, concentrated flavors, and olive oil in it to cook our dinners with, we will.
