5 Food Trends for 2021 That You Should Not Miss

Food trends just like any other trends tend to change a lot. For this year, the Malagos Homegrown Produce, an online store and grocery in Davao City rounded up some of food trends that will surely reign supreme for 2021- from light and airy dishes all the way to authentic ways to innovate meals, here are some to ponder on: 

The rise of meal kits. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, people had to stay at home and restaurants had to adjust to the quarantine situation. While some, unfortunately, had to close down, others made innovations to their menu so that it could be available for takeout and delivery. Meal kits have been gaining popularity over the last few years but it is only during the onset of the pandemic that people were able to appreciate its convenience. With Malagos Homegrown Produce’s meal kits, you will be able to enjoy pre-portioned ingredients for you to prepare gourmet meals in no time. From your pizza cravings even all the way to making your own brownies for dessert- we have it all thought out for you. 

The introduction of food boards. Last Christmas, many people posted to social media their own versions of the charcuterie board. The charcuterie board is a board (or plate) with several types of food like biscuits, meat, and fruits that are usually paired with wine. It will no doubt be still a thing for the coming months since it is not only delicious but also instagram worthy. Want to add a more zing to your board? The Malagos Homegrown Produce has Malagos cheese, cherry tomatoes, and fresh greens that will surely make your food board pop! 

Favorites reinvented as ice cream. If everything was cake in 2020, everything will be ice cream in 2021. We don’t mean this as a joke, especially if you consider the rising number of food being reinvented as ice cream products. From the rice of Haw-Haw and Espasol flavored ice creams, many others are on the way. 

Turning everything to something “baked.” A lot of quarantine food trends have come and gone—but not the sushi bake. Thanks to the work of quarantine chefs everywhere, we’ve moved past deconstructing California maki and salmon teriyaki—we can now also enjoy baked versions of tacos and samgyupsal. To make this venture even easier, you should also give the Samgyupsal meal kit of Malagos Homegrown Produce a try! Put on some extra favorites, put it in the oven and you are good to go! 

Reduce rather than eliminate. Although many on strictly plant-based diets would prefer to see carnivores giving up their precious meat, it is not likely to happen. The more hopeful and more likely result of the argument between which is better and the solution to the problem of keeping up with the world’s demands on climate change and the rising concern on animal population will be to move towards a more balanced diet of less meat, more plants. With this conscious choice, Malagos Homegrown Produce can help you. With farm fresh homegrown produce by our local farmers, living the guilt-free life can be so easy.
