Top 10 Food Trends for 2011
This article came out in Nov 2010 and is by no means an "official" top 10, but after looking at it at a glance, I was really surprised with a few of the items on this list, specially #1.

But it's coming straight from the Food Channel's mouth:


Our values have changed in recent years. We now value different things than we did before the economy slumped, jobs became a precious commodity, and technology turned out to complicate our lives as much as it gave us shortcuts. Sure, for years we talked about simplicity, sometimes under names like "local" or "social consciousness," or "green." But it was like true simplicity was second string—something that we should probably want, but didn’t, not really.

Well, that whole paradigm is quickening thanks to the economy. As we head into 2011, we see people beginning to cherish simplicity. Yes, we have tasted simplicity and have been won over.

Here's the rub: just as a good writer understands that writing fewer words is harder than a lot of words, removing things from our lives is harder than adding to them. And, yet, we see that the 2011 Food Trends are about embracing what may be a little more difficult, because it has proven its value.

Farming. Diet and exercise. Venturing out into new tastes and flavors. Finding our food identity in the kitchen, in the halls of government, and in technology. We value things that are, if not exactly close to us, are at least close to the little guy. The new food simplicity is about putting value on the independent grower, on the person who is striving to make a difference—one farm, one person, one business at a time. In 2011, the consumer is all about buying from a business that is dedicated to creating a quality product, dedicated to doing the right thing, regardless of the size of the business or the number of products they produce.

Re: Top 10 Food Trends for 2011
Tin cans aren't too healthy. They contain BPA and stuff. I love to make my own pickles with just pickling cucumbers, dill weed and sea salt in a jar, set out for a couple days on the counter which causes them to ferment in a really healthy way. They taste amazing, so much better than the vinegary store bought ones. Anyone can do it.

I never calorie count either. If my pants start to feel tight, I cut back on richer foods for a few days and eat more veggies. That's how the French do it. They don't own scales. Food is to be enjoyed, not feared. Fats are good, as long as they are the right kinds of fats. Animals fats are good, not bad! Sugar is the real enemy, and naked carbs, white flour, etc.

Interesting read, Rico. I've done the canning thing for about ten years now, so I guess I am now trendy!
The good news is that, according to the Obama administration, the rich will pay for everything. The bad news is that, according to the Obama administration, you're rich.
