A collection of the up and coming superfoods that will take the health world by storm in the new year! All the latest products and ingredients you need to be eating, cooking with, and including in your daily diet for optimal health and happiness.
With the new year upon us, everyone is starting to predict what foods, trends, products, and fitness fads will be HOT in the world of health and wellness. What new diet craze will sweep the nation? What new exercise class will be at every gym? What new celebrity will start be idolized in fitspo?
It’s all sort of frivolous as no one truly knows what will be popular in the future. Sure, there are trends and patterns that can give us hints, but aside from time travel…there’s just no real way of knowing. I myself usually don’t pay attention to these lists and just try to do my own thing when it comes my personal health and wellness. Just because something is popular in the main stream, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you and your body.
I thought it would be fun to ignore all the hyped up predictions and conjectures and instead curate my only little list of foods that I think ought to have some attention in the new year! Foods that I’ve started eating recently myself in the past year and have loved the results of incorporating them into my diet. From nuts and seeds to baking ingredients and seafood products, this list has a mix of everything and may just give you some great ideas on what you can add to your own diet in the new year to increase variety and nutrient density.
So with that, I give you 10 Superfoods to Eat in 2017….
