The 2019 Healthy Food Trends
You Should Know - Part 2

More foods and health trends, for better health and nutrition

While healthy food trends change from year to year, fresh fruit has always been
a staple of good nutrition and reliable source of vitamins and minerals.

Last year was amazing for all of us who are adventurous about food. We had everything from mushroom powders that have fantastic medicinal properties, to matcha, which is a healthy green tea powder used as a coffee alternative. And of course, who could forget the edible flowers. Also, another big thing about last year is that transparency in food labeling became much more popular. Consumers now are more aware of what they're eating and at which price, and that definitely is a good thing. However, the health food industry is constantly evolving and therefore changing. And that is a good thing because every year we get something new and exciting. Because of these reasons, we have a list of the 2019 healthy-food trends that you should know about.

Eco-Friendly Packaging

The environment is a big deal in 2019. So it’s no wonder that eco-friendly packaging has exploded this year. The thing here is that healthy food packaging is made from compostable materials. Most used materials are recyclable straws, and believe it or not, beeswax. Many companies have decided to work on making their packaging environmentally friendly, or at least friendlier. And this all happened because of customer demand which is fantastic news.

Many reusable solutions have popped out in 2019 too. There are now Stasher sandwich bags that replace the old ones. Also, many manufacturers turned to paper because it is much more friendly for the planet.

You may be surprised to hear, depending on where you live, that stainless steel, silicone, and glass straws are replacing the old plastic ones. Some cities and even countries have completely banned the use of plastic straws. And nowadays, many grocery shoppers choose to bring their own bags when shopping.

Baking bread is one of the 2019 healthy-food trends

For years now many people prone to healthy living avoided bread because of fears of consuming gluten and empty calories. However, things are changing. Google says that the search ''how to bake bread'' has reached its historical maximum this year. The last time it peaked nearly as high was back in 2004. Keto bread wins on all fronts, but gluten-free cloud bread is a close second. The third one is all-time favorite garlic bread, and there's no surprise there. It is worth mentioning that sourdough bread has risen in popularity significantly since it reduces gluten to a bare minimum.

Oat milk is the new almond milk

You have definitely heard about non-dairy kinds of milk, like almond and coconut. They have been incredibly popular in the past few years. However, now there's oat milk and it is one of the 2019 healthy-food trends. It is completely allergen-free and cafes love it because it foams up really nice for cappuccinos and lattes.

There are several brands of oat milk, but the biggest ones at the moment are Oatly, from Sweden, and Quaker. This milk is pretty low in calories when compared to other non-dairy kinds of milk. It also has a high carbohydrate content, so if you are trying to go low on carbs, this one isn't for you.

There's a new kind of probiotics – Prebiotics

If you have kids and if you have ever been in a stressful situation with them, as for instance, you had to move in a hurry, you must know that probiotics are an essential part of everything you need to prepare kids for the move. The reasons are simple. A calm stomach means a happy trip and that is all that matters. Probiotics, found in fermented foods as yogurt and kimchi are of course good for adults too. Now, prebiotics seems to get more and more attention.

Prebiotics are the source of fuel for the good bacteria that helps with balancing our guts. They're found in the non-digestible foods. The best choices for consuming prebiotics are bananas, onions, pistachios, dandelion greens, and artichokes.

They assist good bacteria in the gut, leading to healthier digestive system.

CBD nowadays can be found in everything

As you probably know by now, marijuana use has become legal in many states. The byproduct of this is it taking its place in the kitchens of bars and restaurants all over the U.S. Now to clarify, cannabidiol or CBD comes from the cannabis plant but it doesn't contain any psychoactive properties. This means that you won't get high from eating something with CBD inside it. On the other hand, proponents have said that it makes you mellow, and it is proven to be helpful with anxiety, to a point. However, the full medicinal benefits of CBD have not yet been proven consistently in the studies.

If you are wondering where to find something like this, a New York City restaurant chain named by Chloe has a line of CBD snacks and sweets, and it is called Feelz. So there's a new way of staying healthy in NYC if you're adventurous enough. If New York is too far away for you, in Portland, the vegan cafe Harlow is offering CBD shots in any of their drinks for a $3 charge.

Tahini rises in popularity

Tahini is a paste made out of ground-up sesame seeds. Although it's centuries-old, it has taken off just recently as a rich addition to cookies and now is one of the 2019 healthy-food trends. For years this territory has been strongly under almond butter and things similar to it. However, customer interest in gluten-free food, as well as the paleo diet, have made a perfect spot for tahini to thrive.

This Mediterranean ingredient is very rich in minerals like potassium and magnesium. It also has high levels of protein and unsaturated fats. It is known for its creamy texture and it can be used in pretty much anything from salad dressings to vegan caramel sauces.

One of the most popular 2019 healthy food trends involves tahini paste, made of
grinded sesame seeds, rich in minerals and other valuable nutrients.

Grazing tables are becoming big

People usually think about grazing tables as a bad thing when they're trying to stick to a healthy diet. However, this is a new and fun way of looking at it. This is the only one of the 2019 healthy-food trends that originated in Australia, but it is spreading like wildfire. The thing is that you cover the table with pretty much everything. Meat, fruit, jams, olives, nuts, herbs, etc. Almost anything is okay. Then you bring your friends over and have a different and interesting dinner. It also offers a variety and colorful decorations can be really eye-catchy.
