Kitchen & Food Trends That Keep On Trending
Long gone are the days when kitchens were just a place to prepare meals. In many residences today, kitchens are the hub of the home, becoming a space to engage and initiate one’s own personal expression through creative cooking. In addition, this hub is also a place for social gathering. It’s not uncommon for people to gravitate towards food so it’s easy to understand why the kitchen naturally seems to draw people in!
With the kitchen being such an important space for all of us, we treat it like it’s important. From beautiful kitchen décor, to the best-of-the-best in kitchen gadgets, favorite recipes and our love for everything kitchenware, food isn’t going away.
Even though 2016 is coming to a close, we continue to see – even throughout past years – kitchen and food trends that just keep on trending year after year.
BBC Good Food recently came out with their list of Top 10 food trends for 2017. Wrapped in a tortilla at the top of their list is – you guessed it – tacos!
Year after year and, more accurately, week after week, Taco Tuesday creeps into our cooking schedules. Taquerias keep opening up in lively urban and downtown areas in cities across the nation.
Perhaps it’s because taco ingredients are easy to source and source fresh; or maybe it’s the ease of preparing this hand-held food that makes it as equally irresistible as it tastes. In any case, taco fever isn’t going away. Get prepped with your Taco Tuesday essentials and continue to live la vida loca with your favorite taco recipes in 2017!
A New Year means a new you, right? Even better, think of it as the same great you just trying to #MakeLifeBetter. As we mentioned in a recent blog on how to cook and eat better this New Year, food culture and healthy living propelled the kitchenware category in 2016 and this trend is headed strong into the New Year.
Meal prep and proper portion sizes continue to be hot topics when it comes to healthy living and eating. Whether your New Year’s resolution is to get more fit or just eat better to feel better, look at a fresh New Year as a stepping stone to a healthier life. It’s these healthy steps forward that make all the difference.
Many of us not only seek healthier eating in the New Year, but also healthier ways to stay hydrated that aren’t as bland and boring as plain old water. With so many recipes, tips and tricks for infused water, you can ramp up the flavor. This will help ensure you drink at least the recommended eight 8 ounce glasses of water per day, 365 days of the New Year!
