What will our dinner plates look like in the year 2050? As you can see from the list of edibles we gathered for you, the answer is, "More Jetsons, less Flintstones." That's because as the population continues to climb—scientists expect that we'll be 9 billion strong by the year 2050—we'll have less clean water and arable land per person than today. We simply won’t be able to afford to eat the way we do now.

While some of these items are a new take on familiar favorites, others require some serious lateral thinking before chowing down on them. But make no mistake: Our future depends upon rethinking what we consume.
