Generation X was known for carelessly stuffing their faces with the cheapest processed food available, especially college students on a budget. But, that’s no longer the case. So-called Millennials have identified themselves with the “Foodie” movement, which insists on a more healthy, balanced diet. And, most importantly, an inexpensive way to prepare and consume those meals. It doesn’t look good for the rest of us. Here’s why…
Foodies either like to make their own meals, or they insist on preparation that avoids processed foods and those with “empty calories.”
Upon creating or being served such a meal, the tendency for Foodies is to “share” it online before taking a bite. How else do you explain Snapchat?
Foodies are responsible for the rising popularity of the “Caveman” diet which, essentially, consists of meals which require no cooking at all. Yuck?
Foodies also love Farmers Market locally produced foods (particularly vegetables) that have not been sprayed with chemicals and go straight from the soil to the dinner table.
Foodies And International Fare
Expect to see more exotic, international foods popping up in restaurants and store shelves as the Foodie market takes hold in an even bigger way.
The Foodie Chain
As food processors buy into the trend, they’ll have to prove to Foodies that their products are prepared and distributed in an entirely new way.
Some Foodies insist on taking all the raw materials and chucking them into a blender. Not exactly our idea of a “liquid diet”…
Strictly Vegan Foodies
Radical Foodies completely avoid any hint of meat in their diet, right on down to vegetable oils containing even the merest hint of animal fat.
GMO Friendly Foodies
Like no other generational class, Foodies are not afraid of Genetically Modified Foods. In fact, they’re not even sure what the fuss is all about. Here’s to hoping none of us ever find out. Frankenfish anyone?…
