The Top 2017 Food Trends

The new year is an excellent time to cleanse and detox from the holiday season. With the health, world booming with so amazing products and foods, it’s time to throw out the junk food and start thinking smart about what you’re putting in your body.

Below are the top 2017 foods trends for you to give a try this year. 

Sprouting

Whether you purchase them at your local market or sprout them yourself, this is a trend everyone’s jumping on. Sprouts are low in calories and exceptionally high in nutrients. During the sprouting process, natural nutrients are released, which our bodies cannot typically access from the dried seed or grain, this allows for better absorption. Sprouts are also rich in digestion proteins, essential vitamins, and minerals.

Plant-based alternatives

Plant-based alternatives to common dairy products are taking over. From cheese to yogurt and many beverages, these plant-based alternatives are not only delicious but also a healthier option. And while coconut, almond, hemp, and soy still remain popular, there are now a number of new products available this year. These options are super creamy, flavorful and contain a wide range of nutrients from vitamins A, D, and E as well as calcium. They are also low in calories, lactose-free, contain no saturated fat or cholesterol.

Digestive enzymes

Digestive enzymes have a variety of benefits that aid in proper and efficient bowel movements and overall digestion health. These enzymes help break down certain parts of the food we eat, including carbohydrates, proteins, and fat. This process then helps our bodies better absorb nutrients, which reduces bloating, indigestion and the chance of ulcers from acid build up.

Naturally occurring enzymes found in food are often depleted so supplementation may be necessary depending on your diet.

Mushrooms

Mushrooms have been praised for centuries as part of the culinary and medicinal world. Mushrooms, specifically white and button are known for their many health benefits and powerful nutrients. They contain high levels of B-vitamins and minerals, including selenium and copper. 2017 is thought to bring on a number of mushrooms supplements and products. A number of mushroom types are believed to have anti-inflammatory benefits as well as potent immune boosting properties.

Smart carbs

2017 is also believed to bring on a number exciting new healthy, carb options made out of fiber-rich beans, which will greatly improve digestion, energy levels, and brain function. Smart carbs will allow the body time to break down these foods and better absorb them.
