It’s all about eating right and healthy in order to gain the maximum from our bodies.
Eating right is something that everyone aims to achieve. We’ve seen many celebrities talking about eating right and choosing what’s best for the body. It has been always said, what we eat is what we are and the saying holds true. While every industry has geared up and invited new trends that will be driving the consumers crazy for the rest of the year, why should nutrition take a back seat? Nutritionists have been highlighting and bringing in our notice many new diets and products that have become cult favourites over a period of time. It is true that for a body that needs to look fit definitely should eat healthy and put in efforts. It was all about healthy bowl meals, apple cider vinegar and so much more for the consumers last year and its time again to bring out the trends that will rule the nutrition market for the year 2018.
Plant Based Protein
As chemicals are taking over everything, people are turning towards plant based protein. With their benefit of causing less inflammation plant based proteins are being chosen over by many athletes. The variety is huge which ranges between green peas to lentils to chick peas and a lot more. It has become a favourite of fitness enthusiasts because of its high rate of protein.
Sugar has been always showed thumbs down by nutritionists as it has been proven to be really harmful for the body and health but sweeteners are a must! Natural sweeteners which are healthy and do not compromise on the sweetness quotient are in rage. Stevia is in high demand and other options like dates are also a good choice to make. People who want to cut down on sugar and calories can go for these products and make the desired changes in their health and not taste.
Pseudo grains are in!
While whole grains seem to be the best to consume, the time taken to cook them is a lot more than required to wait for a hearty meal. Many food brands that are value healthy choices have come out with pseudo grains that are basically seeds. Buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth are some mind blowing products in this category. To add in the element of taste, various flavours are also being added to them in order to make people choose them more.
Preservative Free Convenience Food
Convenience is the need of the hour as no one has enough time to stand and finish a proper meal. Many brands are coming up with foods that are preservative free and convenient enough to carry around your busy schedule. Organic food is seeing more convenience and purity at the moment as it is being demanded a lot by consumers.
We have heard this term a lot of times. Gluten-free has been the trend for quite some time now. People who are gluten sensitive are more attracted towards products that are gluten free. Keeping this in mind, companies are producing food products that are full of good nutrients and free of gluten. Diets that contain vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, legumes and high quality proteins are considered as the ideal gluten free meal.
Nutrition is a need for people that need to be fulfilled. We come across many trends that are just fads but in the nutrition sector, it’s all about what benefits rather than what looks good. Nutritionists keep finding and also emphasising on the goodness of trends and that is how it all moves ahead.
