Did you notice all the food themes everyone was talking about this year? Probiotic foods, keto, seaweed, plant-based, repurposing produce, and upcycled foods, and packaging that doesn’t suck? Let’s hope those trends are here to stay!  2019 is starting to wrap up and we are heading into the holiday season, and there is one thing that is super exciting: 2020 food trends!

African foods are loaded with common flavors of ginger, chili, onions, and tomatoes. Often, African cuisine includes peanuts, ginger, and lemongrass with not so common ingredients such as sorghum, fonio, and millet. This is one trend I am excited to experiment with!
