Here is a list of dinner menu ideas for our future generations!
Here’s what your meal might look like in the not-so-distant future.
You order : Red meat | You get : Lab-Grown Beef
The first laboratory-grown beef hamburger was inveied last year by Mark Post of Maastricht University in the Netherlands. The beef patty is typically grown using stem cells from a cow’s shoulder – and guess what? It looked, smelled, and even tasted roughly like a hamburger !So as the science gets better, a less expensive lab burger may not be far off.
You order : White Meat | You get : Insects to eat !
How about chewing some crunchy exoskeletons and dangly legs instead of chicken?!
The thought of eating bugs might gross you out, but they are an excellent, inexpensive source of protein. People around the world have been eating bugs for generations, but now some companies are trying to bring creepy crawlies to the Western market.
Still, don’t expect to see bowls of crickets popping up next to your salad. Before that day comes you’ll probably see insects ground up into patties or protein bars for your quick, angst-free consumption.
You order : Salmon | You get : Black salmon aka. Cobia
Cobia is a tasty, plentiful marine fish that can grow to be 10 times bigger than salmon, and some say that it tastes even better.
Also known as kingfish, lemonfish, or black salmon, Cobia is an inexpensive alternative to salmon species, which have dwindled over the past few years due to overfishing.
You order : Veggies only | You get : Red Algae
In China and Japan, people are already eating algae in the form of seaweed, and the inexpensive, nutritious veggie will probably show up on the Western menu in the near future.
So when algae aren’t mucking up your favorite lake, the tiny, single-celled plants are already being used to produce efficient biofuels and cheap animal feed. So why not throw a dash of algae into your next salad?
Time for some Dessert? Take the Genetically Modified Designer Fruit
Cotton candy-flavored grapes, the latest designer fruit, are already available to satisfy your junk food cravings as a healthier alternative. Gummy Bear-flavored grapes are next, and, in an increasingly health-conscious society, we expect that more candy-flavored fruits are on their way.
However, given the political storm around GMOs, it may be a while before this tasty treat of the future gains widespread acceptance.
