We’re all familiar with food fads. The industry has been rife with them ever since eating became less about survival and more about lifestyle. Keto, Veganism, fast-food, organic, the rise and fall of cow’s milk, the rise, and fall, and rise again, of the farmers market. These trends have all served a purpose to the consumer, whether they’ve stood the test of time or not. Whether the goal is weight loss, activism, fostering community, or convenience, the food we eat now goes beyond simply surviving.
