What could we be eating 100 years from now besides bugs, lab-grown meat and algae?

The same stuff we always eat, just in the future? There's trends with food too, so maybe some foods will be more popular than others in the future, and maybe people will invent new foods.

I'd guess the food is going to be optimized for being healthy and nutritious, while a BCI-based AR system makes it taste like anything people feel like.

If you're wrong, how would you know it?

     More emphasis will be placed on meat, fruit and vegetables, but not necessarily on those traditional types. Consumption of dairy, grains and processed sugar will generally decline in North America and Europe as their negative effects on the brain and immune system become more well-known. Drinking the milk from the tits of another species well into adulthood is not natural for the human body. Dairy is most consumed in North America, Europe and Australia. It’s especially not good in the long-term as it contributes to mental illness and many of the most common autoimmune diseases. 
 
     Synthetic food will eventually dominant the market, with dramatically increased shelf-life, a high density of nutrients, and increased arousal of tastebuds. Lab-grown meat will become widespread, so there will be less livestock and the use of slaughterhouses. New techniques in genetic modification and extensive cross-breeding will result in a multitude of new types of fruits and vegetables. Markets will be less reliant on crops shipped in from foreign climates as food will become easier to grow locally.  
 
     The increase in synthetic food will change large scale farming enterprises. Traditional farming techniques will increasingly be phased out, with less livestock and physical space needed to grow food. Urban areas will increasingly grow their own crops. In addition, automation will replace most of the jobs held by farmers.

while we will all have traditional foods we favor for a long time (there is a reason why farmers in the 1800s and 2000s both produce cabbages, apples, eggs, meat and dairy), there will be changes in how we relate to food as costs and environmental effect influence the food supplies.

 

when we go through the next economic depression you will see a boom in cheap energy bars style complete nutrional foods for one or two meals a day, while cheap garbage like cup o noodles, and fast food will make up the other meal each day.

 

In war that runs for more than 7 years you will see aspects of the old sci-fi staple of meals in pill form. with something like dog biscuits for something to chew on and provide calories past the nutrition factor.

 

and when we start to get our shit together as a species we will see vertical farming of crops, lab grown meat eggs and dairy, and farmed insects in warehouses.

 

But it won't seem as bleak as that all sounds because the art/science of molecular gastronomy and chemistry will change the experience of flavor and texture completely to tap into an experience that will create enjoyment, happiness, nostalgia, etc.

Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.
