6 Healthy Food Trends You Should Know About in 2018

Health News October 19, 2017

Many people will spend December 31st making promises to themselves. This is called the New Year’s resolution, and most resolutions, sad to say, are not kept past January. Most of these resolutions have to do with our health. We want to lose weight, we want to gain more muscle, walk further, run faster. Maybe with a little knowledge of what others seem to be eating that is healthy for their bodies, you will be inspired to eat a more healthy diet for yourself. Following health trends can really be helpful because you feel like you’re in a club and you don’t feel alone in making these changes.

Here are 6 health trends you should know about for 2018:

And you don’t have to wait until 2018 to start.

1. Ugly Fruit

Yes, that’s right. Some of the healthiest fruits and vegetables will not have the perfect coloring or the perfect shape because they are grown naturally and when you grow produce naturally without chemicals, they may not always be pretty but they will be good for you.

2. Cooking from root to stem

Cooking from root to stem is cooking the entire vegetable without throwing any of it away. So, for example, you would cook the whole broccoli from stalk to the florets. There are many nutrients in the parts of produce we tend to just toss in the trash. Greens can be cooked this way as well. Greens hold nutrients within the leaves and the stems. Sometimes the stems can be a little tough, but if you chop them up before cooking you can solve that problem.

3. Seaweed

Seaweed is the new green. This ocean produce has been proven to be one of the healthiest foods we can eat and for those who love that ocean taste of seafood and a bit of saltiness, seaweed may  just be up your alley. You can find it in just about any decent market these days and it’s not expensive to purchase. So get yourself some greens, the new green.

4. Veggie Burgers

Yes, there are a wide variety of veggie burgers on the market now and many taste like real beef, honestly. So if you’re new to the vegetarian diet, try out a few different brands and see which ones spark your taste buds and satisfy your appetite.

5. Jackfruit

Jackfruit may fall into the ugly produce category but it’s a delicious fruit that is often used in vegetarian dishes in place of pork. It has that texture and you can season it any way you like. This yummy fruit hails from Asia and is used there as a common dish. If you’re new to jackfruit, use it in a stirfry, that’s the easiest way to get used to the flavor and texture.

6. Subscription Meal Boxes

There are very healthy subscription meal boxes available now for those who don’t cook or are not sure how to prepare a healthy meal. These subscription boxes come in handy for busy people as well, who have too much on their plates already and just want to come home to a healthy meal.
