“Gluten Free isn't just for Celiacs Anymore”
More people are learning that less gluten helps in overall digestive health. Consumers will be searching for new gluten free ingredients and recipes.
"Kick-Up the Chicken”
Concerns over food budgets, healthier eating, and needing more versatility has created an explosion for creative ways to prepare chicken. Jamaican, Cajun, and BBQ are some ways to kicked up chicken with more flavor and heat. Home Fried Chicken is even in style again!
Heartier vegetable will take the center of the plate more often. Portabella Mushrooms Burgers with wine reduction, Zucchini Pizza, Spinach Lasagna, and Eggplant Steaks are just a few of the ways you’ll see vegetables replacing meat in the coming year.

This traditional cooking process has found a new following. Burnt sugar recipes are sweeping kitchens across the nation in icings, frostings, ice creams, cakes, pies and glazes. Its uses are endless!
"Shake the Salt!”
The need to reduce sodium in the American diet reaches a critical turning point. You won’t just be hearing “Eat Less Salt!” from your Mom and Doctor anymore! School and work lunchrooms as well as your Insurance providers will be forcing you to make changes in your consumption of sodium. Replacing the salt with other natural herbs and spices will continue to become common.
