Food Trends For The New Year

While some food trends stick, most come and go. With the start of the New Year, we are sure to see an insurgence of new food trends for us to try. Here are some food trend predictions for the New Year from dieticians.

The Keto Diet
Keto foods we introduced in 2018 and we can only expect keto-friendly products to grow into 2019. While many have adopted, or may consider, the keto diet, others find it hard to follow completely, thus, we are likely to see more modified keto diets.

Less Sugar
Sugar intake is still a major concern for many as added sugars are closely associated with diet-related chronic diseases like obesity. Manufacturers will try find ways to reduce sugar and incorporate more natural ingredients into their products, but this will continue to be a challenge as sugars play a variety of roles in processed foods aside from sweetness.

Non-Dairy Milk
Plant-based milks will continue to be a popular dairy alternative. But not all non-dairy milks are created equally. Be sure to check labels carefully to choose those that are excellent sources of calcium and vitamins D and E. And aside from popular choices like almond milk, oat milk will likely be on the rise. Compared to other alternatives, oat milk is higher in heart-healthy fiber and satiating protein.

Digital Food Shopping Carts
What happens when you combine online shopping and grocery shopping? Ultimate convenience. Online grocery shopping saves you the time of browsing aisles for your groceries and makes meals easier. You can order via computer or smart phone, browsing and clicking on the items you need. Then you can either have them prepared for pick up or get them delivered straight to your door.

Foods Cooked In Foil
We love to find ways to make cooking easier, and ‘food in a foil’ is just that. Foods cooked in foil help to enhance the infusion of flavor while making clean up a breeze. And thanks to the internet, these recipes and cooking ideas are readily available at our fingertips.

Plant-Based Eating
While not a new trend, it is continually on the rise. The different plant-based options we have available to us allows for more people to adopt a flexitarian diet. We are likely to see baked goods using cassava flour, healthier snacks such as dark chocolate-covered chickpeas, new nut butters like pumpkin seed butter, and alternative oils including pomegranate seed oil and algae oil.

Are you ready to say goodbye to 2014 and start fresh in 2015? So are we. To ensure you have a great New Year, you may want to indulge in these lucky foods on New Year’s Eve.

Greens
They are the color of money, and are said to represent the currency. Lucky for you, they are easy to prepare and good for you. So for your health and prosperity, be sure to load up on your greens this Wednesday.

Fish
Maybe not what you expected, but fish are said to bring success, good fortune, and protect you from dangers. Serve up a steamed, fried or baked fish for your guests, or incorporate fish into your appetizers in a spread for crackers. However you decide to do it, enjoy and hope for the best in 2015.

Fruit
The Spanish tradition is to eat 12 grapes at midnight, one at each chime, representing the 12 months of the New Year. Successful completion of this task shall result in good luck in the New Year. Other lucky fruits include the pomegranate, with its richly colored red seeds representing wealth in the coming year. For those attempting to start a family, a sweet fig is said to signify fertility.

Grains symbolize health and long life, so be sure to load up. Whether it’s a healthy quinoa dish or a circular cake (the round shape is a sign of the year coming full circle), enjoy your food with family, friends, and loved ones.
