It's back: the food world's annual predictions by the health food world of what's hot for the following year. The year 2017 saw everything from unicorn-inspired foods to the rise of ugly greens, these health food trends were everywhere these past months.
But with a new year, also comes new and exciting things to try, and the health food world has revealed what we should expect to obsess over come 2018. Without further ado, here are the health food trends to look out for in 2018.
Urban Cultivator began with one mission: to make the world a fresher place by providing every household with fresh, nutritious, and organic food.
In doing so, we hope to simultaneously help everyone be more sustainable so we can lower our collective carbon footprint through reducing food transportation.
Earlier this week, Google announced Project Sunroof.
It's a terrific initiative that shows homeowners how affordable installing solar panels is now. The benefits of solar panels are many.
For one, you save a ton on energy bills. Solar panels means you are using a natural resource that's free!
The bottom line is that we all want cleaner air. Pollution is a serious issue (see: the smog in Beijing), and can be detrimental to not only plants and animals, but also to our health and that of those you love.
Great innovations can sometimes stem from tragedy. After the 2011 tsunami devastated Japan, scientists in the Miyagi Prefecture had to find a way to supplement all of the crops that were destroyed in the disaster.
Enter Shigeharu Shimamura of Mirai Co., a Japanese farmer on a mission to combat world food shortages. Shimamura has built the world’s largest indoor farm. It can produce up to 10,000 heads of lettuce each day in a relatively small 25,000 square-foot factory.
According to the David Suzuki Foundation, almost half of all food produced worldwide is wasted. From scraps to perfectly unspoiled food will be discarded anywhere from during processing to in kitchens.
Last week our CEO Tarren Wolfe had the pleasure of visiting our friends at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).
This amazing school is training the future Canadian Chefs, and they're doing it with an Urban Cultivator Commercial growing appliance.
The event featured some amazing dishes that showcase the amazing flavours the can be grown indoors with Urban Cultivator.
Kale, amaranth, sunflower, pea, and beet greens are a few of the greens that NAIT is growing in their Urban Cultivator Commercial.
