Do You Eat These? Proof You're a Food Trendster ...


Food has is trends like everything else.

Even to the point where sub cultures develop.

You might even say that following a certain diet (Paleo, gluten-free, vegan etc) makes you part of a food sub-culture.

But unlike sub-cultures which develop and grow over time, trends can be a passing thing.

Take a look in your pantry and fridge and if you can see a few of these products lingering, you can definitely count yourself a food trendster.

1. Quinoa


This is definitely one trendy food that is around to stay.

2. Kefir


A fermented milk drink made with kefir "grains"

3. Kale


Extra brownie points if you make your own kale chips.2

(I had some rainbow kale last weekend!)

4. Kimchi


And you'll have made it yourself.

No store bought kimchi for you.

5. Greek Yogurt

It would be sacrilege for the yogurt space in your fridge to be occupied by sweetened fruit yogurts.

Why buy ricotta, cream cheese, cottage, mozzarella or even cheddar if you can make your own?

You've even had a go at making smoked cheese.

7. Chia


Do you really like the frog spawn texture or do you just eat it because it is so good for you?

8. Kombucha


Kombucha is an ancient fermented tea-based probiotic beverage.2

It has been around for 3,000 years but Westerners have only in recent times woken up to its benefits.

9. Leftovers from a Food Truck Meal

You don't mind paying $15 for a loaf of bread when it's this good.
