2009 Food Trends

What does the future hold? Food and Wine says sandwich shops and butlers that cook. Bon Appetit says the new American tavern will be the trend to watch. I made my own food Oscar predictions and now I'll do some other food forecasting. Trends of 2008, like pescatarians, locavores and post-Atkinsians, have made diet labeling a bit absurd. So here are some food/diet trends that just may be idiotic enough to be real:

Typovores- People who only eat animals that have the same blood type as they do. This stems from the Blood Type Diet. We realize this diet might be difficult, as it requires knowing your own blood type and getting a blood sample from every animal before they hit the grill. That said, you'll be amazed by how thin and energetic you feel after just two months on the diet...


Greenkillivores- Combining the environment-saving and locovore trends, this group only eat roadkill hit by hybrid and fuel efficient vehicles. Inconveniently Truthful dinner.Last, but certainly not least seems to be everyone else aka Bacon-eaters. Between the bacon bowls, bacon weaves (filled with cheese no less) and bacon-wrapped turducken it seems the bacon industry is recession-proof.

How can anyone get past the first four letters of turducken and still think that it is a good idea?

I believe the writer was dramtizing a bit, concerning, bacon wrapped turducken, bacon baskets etc. In other words future food trends could go in any number of directions and they usually do, whats popualr in one part of the US, may not catch on in another part, especially when it comes to eating healthy, after all some states are fatter than others. And just when we thought the low carb revolution was over, it managed to manifest's itself into just about every current diet-plan being marketed today, and why not, cutting down on carbs (not eliminating them)is one of the fastest ways to lose weight, but keeping the weight of is another story.
Oh and "Martin", about the "first four letters" in "Turducken", is very funny stuff.

I am not a vegan/vegetarian/or whatever, but I don’t condemn those who have chosen that lifestyle. Just because we have differences, doesn’t make one or the other choice wrong in this case. We just chose to get our protein in different ways. As for the bacon? I think I’d have to pass, but I would love to try some of the meat itself because bacon does give a good flavor. Besides, I have to watch my fat/salt intake. lol
