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

For real, tho.

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.

The forecast is full of easy ways to eat healthier, preserving foods (whether it's by fermenting stuff or reducing waste), and getting seriously DIY.

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

According to Pinterest, you'll be dressing up your bubby's kugel or bringing beef aspic into the 21st century. Get the recipe for Aunt Laura's Stained Glass Cake here.


4. Avocado oil will be the new olive oil.

Pinterest says to move over, EVOO. Avocados are high in monounsaturated fats, aka the "good kind" of fats. So, it makes sense that they'd be a good swap for olive oil. You can buy this jar over at Walmart.


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

Healthy lunches are always in, but putting them in cute packaging will make it more fun. Plus, it's easier to stay healthy throughout the whole day when you have tasty snacks ready to go. Get these and many more ideas for lunch here.


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

Store-bought flavored oils are usually pretty gross, so it makes sense that making them yourself would be tastier, and probably cheaper, too. Get a full tutorial for four different flavored oils here.

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.


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

Fermented foods, like kimchee and sauerkraut, have great health benefits in the form of probiotics and other digestion-friendly bacteria. Get the recipe for traditional kimchi here.

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