Since the start of social media, food has become a trending topic whether its taking pictures of delicious meals or posting about restaurants that find new, innovative ways to operate. “Foodies” has become a word to describe people overly obsessed with food, and eating has turned into a hobby not just a life necessity. There’s dozens of eating preferences like vegetarian, fruitarian, gluten free, dairy free, and vegan that are now followed by people with and without any of these food intolerances.
