Trends come and go, but the best kinds of trends are those which also happen to be healthy. As the health and wellness industry becomes more popular, people are becoming more health conscious and part of living a healthy lifestyle is eating well. If there’s one thing that eating healthily has proven is that it doesn’t have to be boring. As a matter of fact, some of people’s favourite dishes are actually ones that are also nutritious!

So, what are the healthy food trends everyone loves?

 

Hummus

Who doesn’t love hummus? This middle-eastern dish is a delicious starter that can’t go wrong. For the hummus lovers, you’ll be glad to hear that it’s actually very healthy. The star ingredient, chickpeas, are a great source of minerals such as iron, zinc, folate, manganese and copper as well as plant-based protein and fiber. All the other ingredients used are also very beneficial for your health like lemon, garlic, olive oil and cumin. Of course, there’s a difference between store bought and homemade hummus, the latter being the healthy option as its all natural ingredients whilst the former contains additives. It’s really easy to make at home, simply add all the ingredients into a blender or food processor, chop some vegetables like carrots or cucumbers à la julienne as a replacement to chips and then serve!

 

Guacamole

Avocados have become very popular in the last couple of years. Whether it’s on toast, in smoothies or in a classic guacamole, it’s usually always a crowd pleasure. Guacamole is another classic dip that everyone loves, and like hummus, it also happens to be good for you. Avocado, lime, onion, coriander and chili are the ingredients that make a delicious guacamole. It’s full of healthy fats (brilliant for beautiful hair), fiber, vitamins and minerals. It’s also very easy to make at home and a delicious snack to take on the go. Try our delicious tomato-free guacamole! 

 

Smoothie bowls

Smoothie bowls are the more attractive and appealing cousin of normal smoothies. You can tailor them however you like by choosing your toppings or the color of the smoothie depending on the fruit and vegetables you add. It’s also a more filling version as it has a thicker consistency and you can add many different toppings, from granola, seeds, coconut flakes, cacao nibs and nut butters. There’s a reason why these rainbow coloured smoothie bowls are all over news feeds, they’re delicious and a healthy breakfast!

 

Why not try making these at home? They’re very easy to make and they’re delicious!
