Do you find it hard to keep up with the latest food trends? What's in and what's out changes often, but there are 3 food trends that are here to stay.
1. Organic and Fresh
More and more people are moving away from processed, packaged food. As information about where food comes from and how it's made becomes increasingly available, you should consider joining the organic trend. The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) sets strict standards that determine whether a product is organic or not. Going organic means that you can have peace of mind knowing that your food is safe from dangerous pesticides, antibiotics, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).1 Buy products, such as vegetables and fruits, which are in season. If you're looking for convenience, many markets offer prepared foods that are fresh.
Supporting local communities has become a growing part of the United States economy. CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) are particularly popular as members, or shareholders, cover the upfront cost for the local farm and in return you receive a portion of the produce throughout the season.2 Farmers' markets are also a great way to buy fresh, local food, while supporting your community.
Food is considered a superfood when it's packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals in a single serving. The long list of health benefits that superfoods offer means that it's a trend worth embracing. Superfoods include mixed berries, nuts, kidney beans, quinoa, kale, and dark chocolate - just to name a few. Berries, especially blueberries, cranberries, and açaí, are full of antioxidants and anti-aging benefits. And, just an ounce a day of nuts like almonds, walnuts, or pistachios gives your body protein, heart-healthy fats, fiber, and antioxidants.3
As scientists and health professionals learn more about what you should and shouldn't put in your body, healthy food trends gain popularity.
