It’s no secret that 2020 didn’t really turn out as we expected. Not always fun, but we have started to think differently about food. From a new destination for the contents of your pantry to chickpea tofu, get ready for a culinary journey to the hottest food trends that will most likely hit your plate at some point in 2021.
1. Snackification is officially a thing now
The most recognizable food trend that we predict for 2021, snackification , has actually long held a special place in our hearts. Working from home means that traditional meal times are no longer so strict (hello, have a nice lunch at 11 o’clock) and all those unexpected eating moments now finally have their own term: snackification .
2. Try the 2021 climate diet
From locally sourced food to plant-based dishes, there are tons of ways to keep your carbon footprint as small as possible when it’s finished food.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect meat substitute or just trying to eat as many seasonal products as possible , 2021 offers even more opportunities to make your diet a little greener.
3. Discover the world’s most versatile legume
This legume may not look that impressive , but don’t let the chickpea fool you. This stunner is packed with nutrients and we predict that chickpeas will rule in the field of food in 2021 .
4. All-day breakfast is normal in 2021
You probably already knew that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but in 2021 brunch will really get the attention they deserve.
Breakfast can even be eaten all day, but we are not talking about a simple oatmeal or scrambled eggs. No, working from home makes us more and more creative with our meals.
5. It’s going to be a lot of stuff
If you can use an adventure, then you’re in the right place in 2021, because spicy dishes are back on the menu, literally and figuratively .
From sambal to kimchi with an extra kick, spicy food is popular. And how. In fact, it is one of the fastest growing food trends at the moment.
