Food fads waning

…According to a story in USA Today in October 2004, carb-counting peaked two years ago, although some people still tend to eat some foods because they are billed as low carb or low glycemic index.

…Families serve fewer side dishes, due to their lack of time and interest in cooking.

…Crock Pot use is up (duh, the pot does the “work”).

…Yogurt is king.

…Eggs are also back. The nutritionists decided they are not causing higher cholesterol, a theory they tried out on us for decades.

…Breakfast is the least changing meal. Supper has the most variety.

…What happened to low carb? Bread happened. When people found out bread was a carb, ooops, not thrilled.
