    These Are Going To Be The 16 Biggest Food Trends In 2016, According To Pinterest

    So you can live that #PinterestLife.

    We're all familiar with the pitfalls of trying to live a #Pinterestlife.

    But, the truth is, Pinterest is a great place to get ~inspiration~. Now Pinterest is attempting to tell us what is in store for 2016.

    Let's take look, shall we?

    1. We'll all be fancying up vintage and traditional foods. Jelly salad, anyone?

    2. You'll be turning your kitchen into a brewery.

    3. Apparently, we'll also be making our own booze.

    4. Avocado oil will be the new olive oil.

    5. French toast will get ~savory~.

    6. Healthy lunches in cute packaging will make work easier and more delicious.

    7. We'll be skipping Starbucks and home-brewing quality coffee instead.

    8. Bye-bye, carbs — we're going to be swapping in veggies for high-calorie foods.

    9. Beers and cocktails will fall in love.

    I'm pretty sure that micheladas have been the shit for a while now, but Pinterest says that "beertails" are going to be a thing in 2016. Get the recipe for blood orange, jalapeño, whiskey and beer cocktails here.

    10. DIY infused olive oils will still be a thing.

    11. We'll all be magician-gardeners. Regrow food from your scraps!

    12. Wasting less in general is a theme for 2016. Instead of throwing out unused herbs from the store or garden, save them in olive oil.

    I can't tell you how many times I have a bag of thyme or parsley that I end up throwing out. I love the idea of saving herbs in creative ways. Get the how-to for freezing herbs in olive oil at The Kitchn.

    13. Fewer, better ingredients that are well prepared.

    14. Fruit-flavored water is the new soda.

    15. Fermented foods will continue to be trendy (and help our guts!).

    16. Going dairy-free or gluten-free is here to stay.

    Are you going to try any of these in 2016? Or do they seem wack to you?
