What is this “Acai bowl” everyone is talking about? Admit it, you asked yourself this question at some point in your life, unless you were born in Brazil! I think it is pretty crazy how everyone will suddenly start speaking about a health food product, and then you start seeing it everywhere. It becomes a trend.
Am I the only one… or does everyone drink sparkling water now? A few years ago you would go visit your friends, and they would offer you a soda or some alcohol, right? Well seltzer is now back in the race against the soda giants! Less sugar, more water! The United States has never consumed this much avocado, until this day.
Chickpeas, cauliflower, kale and many other healthy ailments are also making their way to the top. Samples like this goes on and on, but how are these food trends born? These so called ‘trends’ are inJluenced by a wide range of factors: famous chefs, health studies, diet trends and even fashion. “Healthy Food” is definitely the tendency of this decade.
Consumers are very health-conscious, swinging more towards “real” foods instead of lab-created pseudo foods. The “fast and easy” trend is slowing down and Jinally making room for “organic”, “local”, “no added sugar”, “dairy free”, etc. I have to say… it was about time!
We are finally waking up and realizing that eating bad, can end bad. After all, we are what we eat, right? But do we really know what we eat sometimes? Can you even pronounce all of the names of the ingredients in this bag of chips? Probably not! However… we all know that is not a good sign. I want to live as long as I can, without having to fight cardiac disease or cancer. By consciously putting in the effort to eat as healthy as possible, hopefully the odds will be in my favor. Not only is it excellent for my body long term, but I love how light and energized I feel after eating a delicious avocado toast from Belle Surf Cafe! Can you say the same after eating at a fast-food restaurant?
