  1. Dining Goes Hollywood: Dining establishments make their restaurant and its dishes more photo friendly to appease Instagrammers far and wide
  2. Craft beer begets “craft food”: Food made in small batches using local ingredients
  3. Healthier kids meals: This is something we can stand behind!
  4. Cauliflower, the new kale: It’s the new “it” veggie
  5. Culinary cannabis: As more states legalize, the herb will find its way into baked goods, candies and other foods
  6. The super fruit: The African fruit, baobab, will start popping up everywhere. It’s got a lot of calcium and fiber! BaobabNative Foods uses this image courtesy of: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Baobab_-_fruit_(8750413322).jpg
  7. Techie restaurants: New technologies to make and sell food
  8. Food fusion: Eat your drinks and drink your food (ex: drinks with whole fruits and vegetables in them).
  9. Vegetable yogurt: What?! Think beets, squash, and tomato…
  10. Gen Z appeal: So long Millennials, it’s Gen Z’s turn. Get ready for restaurants to cater to the youngest generation. Louder music, brighter lights are coming.
