I can not believe 2016 is almost over.This, of course, had a great year. Food wise, we saw all the cauliflower, avocado toasts begin Pitter from (although it is still popular), donut shops to take over, and smoothie cups everywhere. So that for 2017? I asked the editors of EatingWell that healthy eating trends they see on the horizon over the next year. That is what we expect will be hot in the next year.
1. Bean Paste
Although 2016 was a year of momentum, the beans will be even more in 2017. We have tried grain pasta beans (made only from bean flour), which is really high in protein and fiber. Expect to see a lot of them on the shelves this year -All of Edamame chickpea pasta fusilli up to the elbows and black Lentil Rotini beans.
While the fermented products were particularly big in 2016, we believe that it will only continue to get more. Gut health is a hot topic and people eat sauerkraut, kimchi and other fermented vegetables more than ever. Expect to see more fermented items at the grocery store and on the menu.

3. Veggie Chips
Forget vegetarian snacks, which are unlikely to have any – any real vegetables in them. We have seen many companies producing veggie chips with only vegetables, butter and a little salt. From beets in the stool, we believe that these vegetable snacks will appear on the shelves next to you. You can also make your own cabbage, Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes and beetroot crisps at home with these healthy recipes .
Seaweed from the low in calories and high in nutrients, so we are glad to see all the more and more food. You can buy packaged snacks from seaweed, enjoy it to the land by night, and sprinkle it on top of a bowl of grain, like the seared tuna Tataki Quinoa Bowl .
5. Alternative Sugars
We’ve seen more and more products have alternatives to white sugar as sugar, and sugar coconut date. Each of them has its own unique flavor profile. We hope that manufacturers pass on these sugars also use less. Too much of any sugar is not good for your blood sugar levels, heart or waist.
6. Inventive Jerky
Protein C is a nutrient duty increasingly packaged snacks available that provide protein. While we appreciate the beef jerky for conent with high protein content and a simple list of ingredients (just keep an eye on sodium), we see grass-fed options, lamb and dried seafood dried inflow (mostly salmon). Just like beef jerky, check the sodium that you are not going overboard.
7. Bone Broth
While bone broth has been around, we do not think that it is still at its peak. More and more companies are stocking grocery store shelves with bone soup and you can even buy it in the cafes and bars across the country juice. He claims that bone broth captures everything from leaky gut to the formation of wrinkles is not supported by science, but it still can be part of a healthy diet.
Turmeric spice was climbing the charts in 2016, but this healthy seasoning is not going anywhere, 2017. Turmeric is often found in Indian recipes and contains curcumin, a super-healthy compound ( ). Expect to see more turmeric spiced drinks and dinners, as well as turmeric, is showing more and more recipes.
9. vegan food
Power to the plant-based is becoming more and more fashionable, and not in vain. Abstinence from meat, dairy products and eggs can help you lose weight, have a healthy heart and live longer. And if you can not imagine my life without cheese or meat, you can still take part-time vegetarian diet and eat more plants. We think that we will see more vegan products on the shelves in grocery stores this year, but fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts and whole grains are healthy vegan staples to eat more.
10. Grain Bowls
Cereal bowls are not new for 2017, but this is one healthy way of eating we do not think will go away. Cereal bowls begin with whole grain layer on lots of vegetables, protein and a delicious sauce-flavor possibilities are endless. These bowls make it easy to cater to different tastes and diets (from vegan to diabetes-friendly), because each adds that they want. Grain bowl usually can be targeted in advance, so they are perfect for lunches and dinners weeknight. Give these healthy recipes a bowl of grain try this year.
