Post-pandemic, consumers turn to healthy eating and plant-based foods
LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, Aug. 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — One of the positive cultural changes brought about by the pandemic has been a new interest in healthy eating, according to a recent study, and chef-owner Tracy Evans of California-based Set the Table Personal Chef Services is pleased to see such widespread growth, especially when it comes to plant-based foods.
The study by food industry giant Archer Daniels Midland found that consumers are not only interested in healthy foods, plant-based eating, and wellness in general, but also “personalized nutrition,” a a term that could have been lifted from Chef Evans’ business card. “As a personalized dining company, we are excited that consumers are focused on eating for their health,” says Evans, who won the 2022 Best of Los Angeles Personal Chef Service Award in May. “Our mission has always been to provide fresh food and integral to our clients. It is important to remember that our health is individual, but it should include plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, etc., keeping processed foods to a minimum.
Not coincidentally, Evan’s personal chef business model is based on takeout, meal delivery, custom menus, and other innovative services that are now making their way into the mainstream. “Consumers are becoming more educated,” says an ADM spokesperson. And I think innovation is going to be extremely reinvigorated. There are so many opportunities to connect with consumers in new ways.”
Similarly, plant-based foods are poised to go from curiosity to mainstay among American consumers, twenty percent of whom “purchased their first plant-based protein products during the pandemic,” the study states. “And almost all, 92%, say they will continue to buy these products.”
With savvy consumers more concerned with healthy living, “We believe the savvy consumer will spend their money to make sure they know exactly what their body needs with nutritionists, dietitians and testing, and then supplement and nourish accordingly,” Evans said.
BIO: Tracy’s passion and interest in food began at the early age of eleven. Growing up, her family owned a well-known grocery business in Palo Alto, California for sixty-five years. Using the freshest ingredients, her mother and her grandmother taught her everything they knew about cooking and baking. It was then that she found her enthusiasm for preparing delicious and natural foods, and her enthusiasm for food began to blossom. In 2014, Tracy founded Set the Table Personal Chef Services to share her passion for food with others. Access Hollywood recently cast Tracy as her food stylist. When Tracy isn’t in the kitchen, you’ll find her exploring the great outdoors, going for walks, or tending to her garden. She enjoys Pilates and Gyrotonic Bodywork and she is always ready for her next deep tissue massage. Currently, she is learning to play the guitar and loves animals, so she enjoys visiting all of her clients’ furry friends.
