What does 2017 have in store for us in terms of healthy eating? Here are some of the trendy food items we should be eating in 2017 –
If 2016 was the year of the pulse, 2017 is going to be the year of the bean, with bean pastas becoming ever more popular. Grain-free pasta is high in fibre and protein. Expect to see lentil elbows, chickpea fusilli and endamame spaghetti fill the supermarket shelves.
Fermented vegetables were a hit in 2016, and this trend will continue into 2017. People were indulging in sauerkraut and kimchi amongst other fermented veggies in an effort to improve gut health.
Veggie chips will make an impact in 2017. These are snack bights using vegetables, oil and vinegar. Kale, Brussels sprouts and sweet potato are just some of the vegetables you can make into this snack.
Seaweed is a healthy food, being low in calories and high in nutrients. Packaged seaweed is available and can be used with sushi as well as sprinkled onto other things such as grain bowls.
Bone broth will likely continue to grow in popularity in 2017. There are claims it can reduce wrinkles as well as helping gut health, but these are, as yet, not backed by any scientific evidence. That said, it is undoubtedly a healthy food product to try in 2017.
Turmeric has long been a staple in all sorts of Indian food, but nowadays it is being used more and more in other cuisines and foods. It contains circumin which is a super-healthy compound and can be used in both food and drinks.
Vegan food has been popular for a long time now, but it’s expected it will become even more popular in 2017. And for those of us not quite ready to go full-vegan, the option of being a part-time vegan is still a healthy one.
Grain bowls will be an even bigger staple in 2017. Starting with a grain, added on top some vegetables, a protein and a delicious sauce and you have both a delicious and a healthy meal.
Those are just a selection of the healthy food trends we are going to see in 2017. If you would like to know more about these, and other healthy food related items, take a look at Living Well.
