Happy 2017! Here are food trend predictions for the year

Happy 2017 low-salt, low-fat, low-sugar eating everyone, I’ll be writing about more predictions in coming days, so check back.

A new year always brings with it a bevy of new food predictions. It’s difficult to read anything food-related this week without seeing some prediction or another. I’ll be reviewing some of those here with an eye toward salt, fat and sugar, since most food outlets never do that.

MY matzo pizza...the matzo has no salt, no or sugar in it, a great base for salt-free tomato sauce and fat-free cheese.

First to focus on, Bon Appetit’s Charcoal, Old-School Pizza, and Every Other Food Trend You’ll See in 2017.

The headline says most of it, old-school pizza is coming back. That means high-fat and high-salt pizza. I’d say skip it in favor of my two low-salt, low-fat pizza recipes, you can find by clicking here and here.

The same article says cauliflower will be the new “It” veggie. I hope not, I can’t stand it. Also, watch for something called nutritional yeast. 

“Nutritional yeast has been around for a minute, but it’s going to make the leap to primetime in 2017. This umami-rich vegan condiment can be sprinkled on popcorn and other snacks as a creamy flavor booster, but it’s also being adopted by restaurants like Seattle’s Steelhead Diner and New York City’s Lalo as the substitute for Parmesan cheese in vegan Caesar salads,” Bon Apettit writes.
