New Year, New Food Trends

Love of food is universal: we like food that looks as good as it tastes. And 2019 was no exception with the rise of avocado toast, acai bowls, and Impossible burgers. But with 2020 just days away, will our #foodie newsfeeds be changing? What trend will chefs think up next? 

Business Insider has the scoop on what food trends we can expect to see. And you better believe: it’s impossibly delicious! 

Healthy Twists

Our health-conscious choices will continue to grow in popularity. Along with our 2019 favorites, we’ll see a rise in tropical fruits, antioxidant-rich natural additives, and greens. Dieting trends will continue such as the keto diet and consuming bone broth. 

Check out these foods to keep you full in 2020!

  • Star Fruit: Full of vitamins, star fruit is full of vitamin C, providing 57% of the daily recommended value in a serving.
  • Squid Ink: Popular in Mediterranean and Japanese cuisine, squid ink adds a dark color to foods as well as a savory flavor.
  • Collagen powders: Used as an additive in smoothies, coffee, and tea, the powder promotes healthy skin. 
  • Keto diets: Low carb diets will continue to be popular, and are expected to grow into 2024.
  • Cauliflower Pizza: Cauliflower pizza has been on the rise with low carb diets and has made many restaurants adapt to consumer needs. We can expect 2020 to be filled with more cheesy goodness!
  • Bone Broth: For many paleo diet followers, bone broth has been a staple. But now, with a focus on reducing inflammation, bone broth will grow in popularity. 

Spice, Spice, Baby.

We love a little kick to our favorite dishes. This year, harissa, a hot chili powder paste, will make a comeback to foodies. Some are even calling it the new sriracha. 

Adding ginger to dishes will also be popular as the market continues to flourish. 


Thank goodness for Starbucks cold brew! Cold-brew coffee has been taking the coffee world over and it appears there is no sign of stopping. “Datassential, in collaboration with CNBC, also reports that cold brew now appears on 7.3% of U.S. menus, up 356% over the last four years.”

Non-dairy alternatives will also line our supermarket shelves as we enter the new decade. Oat milk, in particular, has boomed, with the brand Oatly‘s revenue growth from $1.5 million to more than $15 million

One thing is for certain, 2020 is sure to be a delicious year!
