Healthy Eating Trends
There are always trends in eating that people call healthy but while some are healthy, some arent. However, regardless of whether youre a proponent of a plant-based diet or a keto diet, they do have some things in common. Lets look at these commonalities that point to the real trends.
Eat Less or No Sugar
Regardless of which diet you choose, they all ask you to eat less added sugar – especially table sugar or white sugar. Most people are using “raw” sugar cane, honey, or maple syrup and even agave instead of white sugar, and in small quantities.
The idea of giving up other beverages for water is a healthy one that is sticking. To cope with this, youll see a lot of infused water recipes and probably even a lot of infused tea recipes that will help.
Drinking Non-Dairy Milks
From oat milk to pea milk, there are tons of choices for non-dairy milks that you can use on your cereal, in smoothies, and in cooking. Try different types of milk for new flavors and textures that youll end up loving.
Getting More Omega 3s
Everyone knows that omega 3 is needed to ward off illness and to improve heart health, but you no longer need to get it from fish oil. You can also get omega 3s from hemp seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, walnuts, and soybeans. In fact, chia seeds offer more omega 3s per serving than mackerel.
Taking other food and drinks like water, tea, ice cream, and more and infusing them with supplements is another way to add to your healthy eating goals. Whether your food is infused with ginger, CBD, lavender, turmeric or something else, its going to be good.
Gut health is an important health concern which is in the news often. Eating probiotic food like kimchi, sauerkraut, and other fermented food is great for rebuilding gut health. Some research suggests you should eat one fourth a cup of fermented food every day.
Science has proven that turmeric has many benefits. This includes being an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, and it may even prevent symptoms of depression, arthritis and cut down on heart disease. Eat at least 500 to 1000 mg per day; there is 200 mg in one teaspoon of turmeric. Try Wellandfull.coms Golden Milk recipe. (https://wellandfull.com/2018/07/spiced-vegan-golden-milk/)
Eating Fewer Added Fats
This is not to say you should not eat fat. But health-wise, people are getting away from adding fat and eating food that already has fat. For example, using avocado on your toast is a better way to get fat than putting on butter.
The old super-sweet and overly indulgent sweets are going out. Today, people like to eat desserts that are delicious yet healthy. In the summer its easy because of all the fruit and berries available.
These healthy eating trends will be in style and will not go back out of style. After a summer of eating healthily, you wont want to go back to eating unhealthily all the time.
