These Were The Top 10 Healthy Food Trends Of 2017
While we’re excited to be looking forward at what trends are up and coming for 2018, it’s also fun to look back on the new foods that permeated wellness culture over the past year. We asked some of the best R.D.s and wellness experts in the country to share their favorite trend of the year. Here are their picks:
1. CBD-infused chocolate.
I loved the trend of CBD-infused foods, especially chocolate. CBD is becoming more mainstream, and its powerful anti-inflammatory properties turn an ordinary “treat” into something functional.
Try the trend: We love this super-calming CBD-infused hot chocolate.
2. Mindful eating.
My favorite trend of 2017 was that mindful eating became important and “cool.” While eating mindfully is mental, it can have real physical effects and can help people lose weight and achieve their health and wellness goals. I just hope that this is a trend that’s here to stay because it is such an important component of achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Try the trend: Do this meditation before your next meal to get in touch with your body.
I was super excited about collagen peptides this year. I really love the versatility of this protein powder, not to mention that it helps to improve gut health and the integrity of hair, skin, and nails. My favorite factor is that it’s virtually taste-free, so it’s undetectable in smoothies, drinks, soups, tea, and more!
