5 New superfoods to watch

Keeping the world healthy starts with you

You can’t cure the world without keeping yourself healthy, so make sure and stay up-to-date on the newest health food trends. According to the internet, kale and coconut water are totally out and have been tossed aside to make room for a new wave of healthy ingredients. Get ready to see these five foods take over the health scene in 2018.  

  1. Peas

Long gone are the days where we dreaded finishing our peas, pushing them around our plate hoping Mom wouldn’t notice. Peas are packed with vitamins and can be eaten raw, steamed, mushy, or dried and crisped. Another power of peas: they’re considered hypoallergenic and are safe for people with allergies.

  1. Super powders

Forget wishing for superpowers and start wishing for super powders. Powders like matcha, turmeric, spirulina and maca root are becoming popular in everything from smoothies to baked goods. Super powders have tons of health benefits, from fighting inflammation to strengthening the immune system.

  1. Mushrooms

According to Whole Foods’ trend report, mushrooms will be all the rage for 2018. Varieties like reishi, chaga, cordyceps and lion’s mane are becoming popular in foods across categories, with bottled drinks, coffees, smoothies and teas paving the way. Mushroom broths are also super popular, but the mushroom trend isn’t limited to just food. Soaps, body care and hair care are making major waves in the functional mushroom market as well.

  1. Root-to-stem recipes

Root-to-stem recipes use every part of the plant to help eliminate the food waste problem. Parts of the plant you would normally throw out, like watermelon rinds or broccoli stems, now have a place in more dishes than ever before.

  1. Pink pineapples

Next year, shades of pink and purple will be taking over the food scene. Pink pineapples are made with lycopene, which gives the fruit its pink color and may even help prevent cancer. Pink pineapples are said to be sweeter and less acidic than the average pineapple, making them the perfect snack.
