Food trends are nothing new.  We see popular culture influencing art, clothing, cars, education, and more, so we probably shouldn't be too surprised that the food bandwagon keeps changing its stripes too.  There's a real pull towards the latest craze, especially if we see someone we know who's benefited.

A friend of mine recently asked her online community for suggestions about which diet she should go on to feel healthier and lose weight.  There was a flood of responses from well-meaning momtrepreneurs hawking the latest fads they each subscribe to.  From sugar-free energy drinks to weight-loss clinics, people are looking for a magic bullet to solve nutritional issues.

I'm not discounting the fact that there are solutions that work for some.  The danger is to make an assumption that a particular diet or supplement will work for all.  Subscribing to a hard-line ideology may actually do more harm than good.  Common sense and moderation may not be trendy concepts, but they are time-tested.

un(food) takes a departure from communities pushing specific diets.  It's our desire to help people eat well no matter what decisions they've made about food.

This video from CollegeHumor illustrates just how silly some of the trendy things we believe are.
