People are going more and more organic in the way they eat, drink, dress, and live their lives in general. They’ve started talking about mental health problems, traumatic experiences, and how to deal with them. It seems year 2019 will be even more action-packed in the health department. Here are 10 awesome health trends you should follow in 2019.
Ghee in your coffee
The benefits of eating ghee are endless, that’s why it’s the number one superfood in Ayurveda. Even if you aren’t familiar with pure ghee, make sure you add a spoon of it to your morning coffee. This will help your body metabolize carbs, improving your metabolism and promoting weight-loss as a result. Ghee is also the source of vitamins A, D, and E, Omega-9s, Omgega-3s, and fatty acids.
More oat milk
Oat milk was one of the biggest new trends of 2018, but it’s not over yet. Expect to see even more oat milk and products made with it. What makes this type of alternative milk so popular is the fact that it’s really similar to dairy milk in taste. You can use it in cooking and baking instead of cow milk.
Ayurveda is making a comeback
Not that this ancient ‘knowledge of life’ went away somewhere, but the modern eastern society is rediscovering this amazing health system only now. Ayurveda has been around for 5,000 years and it has knowledge about all kinds of health issues and how to treat them. Healthy foods, herbs, special massage techniques, spices, diets – it can teach you all of it! Ayurveda focuses on the mind-body connection, which will be a huge theme of year 2019.
Tahini is a type of nut butter made from sesame seeds. It’s been known in the Middle East for thousands of years, but the rest of the world is only starting to recognize the amazing health benefits and taste palette of this simple nut butter. It tastes great paired with hummus, but can also be used in baked goods and smoothies for an extra energy boost.
Ice creams will go bananaz
How about some extra sweet Turkish ice cream or super healthy avocado popsicles? It sounds delicious and tastes even more heavenly. Year 2019 will go crazy with frozen treats and new yummy flavours like the much anticipated hummus ice cream.
More sea snacks
Algae ingredients will go big this year. Be prepared to try some yummy plant-based tuna, crispy seaweed chips, and even water lily seeds. Don’t be surprised to see actual seaweed butter on the shelves in 2019 – nothing is impossible right now!
Moringa is the new coffee
If you feel like getting off coffee, but need the same energizing effect – this year moringa will come to your rescue. This plant has been known in India for centuries and has some powerful medicinal properties apart from being energizing and yummy. Packed with magnesium, potassium, and vitamin C, it will give you the necessary energy boost in the morning.
‘Good’ fat is something that’s been recognized as an essential part of any healthy diet, that’s why 2019 is all about snacks that include those good fats. We’re talking about yummy things like peanut butter (and other kinds of nut butters), coconut oil, and avocados just to name the few.
As more and more people are getting off sugar-loaded sodas and juices, we will see more functional water sold in the stores. This is water that is infused with minerals, vitamins, fruits, and herbs for some extra health benefits. There are also easy fruit and herb water recipes you can try yourself!
The Keto diet is still big
This low carb diet trend bloomed at the end of 2018 and it continues to get more followers as we speak. It’s one of the most efficient ways to lose weight, although requires some getting used to. The trick is to make your body burn fat instead of sugar for energy supply. This means you’ll have to forget about sweets, chocolates, and basically everything that contains sugar.
