Good news for fungus lovers: Pinterest has released its 100 Pinterest trends for 2019, and topping the food section are none other than mushrooms.

The report, which is based on the volume of searches per keyword term over the past six months, is full of exciting foodstuffs, from oxtail to jam to chayote, an apple-sized member of the squash family.

Without further ado—can we get a drumroll on a well-baked bread boule, please?—here are Pinterest's top 10 food trend predictions for 2019:

1. The mighty mushroom

According to Pinterest, "nutrient-packed mushrooms are springing up everywhere from coffee drinks to chocolate bars," with searches for "mushroom recipes" up 64%.

2. Inspired infusions

The report predicts a continued interest in infused waters and other non-alcoholic drinks in 2019—like, those with digestive and/or anti-inflammatory benefits—noting that searches for "ginger water" are up 353%.

3. Move over almond milk

Apparently, we're not the only ones swooning over alt-milks. Pinterest says searches for "oat milk" are up 186%.

4. Recipes you knead

Searches for "baking bread" have increased by 413%, says the report, which bodes very well for us (hi carbs, love you!).

5. Going pegan

According to Pinterest, searches for "eating pegan"—aka, part paleo, part vegan—are up by 337%.

6. Amazing graze

Pinterest predicts that family-style feasts—which users search for as "grazing tables," up by 163%—will be a focus in 2019.

7. Din tin tin

"Foil pack dinner recipes are perfect for busy cooks: Low-prep, low-mess, super flavorful," says the report. Searches for "foil pack dinners" have increased by 209%.

8. Pin the oxtail

Oxtail made the cut for Pinterest's next-year-trend predictions, after searches for "oxtail recipes" rose by 209%.

9. Jam on it

Pinterest users have been searching for "homemade jam" in droves—it's up 829%—which means we'll have something to slather all over our 2019-trending bread.

Reference Din Tin Tin: I'm pretty sure I contributed to at least 64.9% of those searched. My current job requires me to cook over a campfire about 10 days a month, and I have about 89 foil pack recipes saved on my Pinterest.
