Look out because 2019 is coming in HOT and HEALTHY!!!
Here are a few of the latest foods trends:
1.) THE KETO DIET
No shocker here! The Keto diet was first introduced last year but its popularity continues to rise. The biggest difference this year is that we are seeing more modified Keto options because the original is so strict and many people had a hard time following it.
2.) LESS SUGAR
This has always been a concern for consumers because of obesity and companies will continue to use new technologies to reduce sugar in their products. Going for less and going for more natural products will still be the goal this year, but it will be a challenging task. I will be sure to keep you posted!
3.) NON-DAIRY MILK
Talk about hot trends! This one in particular has continued in 2019. Plant-based milks, especially almond milk is extremely versatile and has been incorporated into smoothies, soups, stews and more! Oat milk is also becoming a leader with its high fiber and protein.
4.) ONLINE GROCERY SHOPPING
Thanks to the internet you can improve the organization of food shopping and make mealtime less of a hassle in 2019. I have absolutely taken advantage of this hot new trend and have my groceries delivered! Being a Mom of three girls, running my own business and teaching fitness classes leaves me with very little time to do the “grocery shopping deal”.
5.) FOODS COOKED IN FOIL
Infuse the flavor and forget the fuss! With this hot new trend you can get great tasting food on the table quicker and clean up with ease.
6.) PLANT-BASED EATING
Healthy baking options and snacks are getting bigger this year with plant-based eating. You could see things such as cassava flour, dark chocolate-covered chickpeas, pumpkins seed butter, pomegranate seed oil and more!
7.) CELERY JUICE
This foodie trend give you energy, great for digestion and can help your skin look better! The secret is in the hydration!
8.) SMART COOKING APPLIANCES
Don’t stress about dinner! Slow cookers and instant pots improve flavor, save money, measure ingredients, and controls portions. What are you waiting for? Cook smarter and make your home life easier!
