Is it still ok to use foodie as a term or is it food enthusiast now? No matter which term I use, I love food. I love to eat, cook/bake, see, smell, photograph, talk and write about food. At the moment I am pondering about how food would be like in 100 years. This post contains many questions I have, I am no futurist. There are a hell lot of woulds and fantasy, prepare yourself.

Would there be enough ground left to grow the crops and to keep livestock? How about clean water? Which vegetables or fruit would extinct then? Which ones would survive? Would there be new species of vegetables and fruit? Or would our children’s children consume solely genetic manipulated/modified food? How would that taste like? How about typical regional cuisines would these blend into one universal sort as the world might become borderless then?
Not unimportantly; if space travel would be a reality, would it make food in tablets normal? How about the taste buds? Would these evolve according to what human consume then?
Human basic needs are the air to breath, a place to settle and adequate food to survive. I expect the technology would allow human to explore more at that time. Perhaps scientists would succeed in inventing food tablets that are quite filling to fulfill the hunger. With the immensely growing world population, rising food prices, environmental challenges, would there be enough food for everyone? Don’t get me wrong, I am fully aware there is famine going on in Nigeria, South Sudan, Somalia and Yemen. 20 million people are starving to death now. This is caused by wars in those countries. How would the situation be like in 100 years? Worse, better or the same?
