A list of this year’s most trendy superfoods

If your health journey has expanded to your diet, this blog is definitely for you! You’ve probably heard all about superfoods like acai, kale, and avocados, and what makes them so powerful. But did you know there are some lesser-known trends in superfoods that are all the buzz this year?

Here are just 5 superfood trends to be on the lookout for!

  1. Macadamia Nuts
    We’ve all heard about the brainpower of walnuts and the protein benefits of almonds, but you might not have heard about the ‘good fats’ of macadamia nuts! ‘Good fats’ are the cleaner, plant-based fats in superfoods like avocados. The ‘good fats’ in macadamias provide a rich source of the Omega fatty acids needed for many essential health functions. And while some nuts contain these good fats, macadamias do so with fewer carbs and sugars, and more copper, magnesium, and phosphorus. It’s the nutrient density that keeps you fuller longer!
  2. Berries
    Raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, and a variety of others are not only colorful and delicious. They also provide tons of antioxidants–the molecules in food and supplements that help fight free radicals from damaging our body’s internal defense systems. Berries host tremendous sources of Vitamin C and K1 as well as manganese, all of which are powerful antioxidants that can help improve blood sugar, fight inflammation, and even protect your skin.
  3. Fermented Foods
    As much as we may try to eat a well-balanced diet, our bodies still need help digesting the food we eat. And rightfully so! Your gut health can have a serious impact on all areas of your life. That’s why it’s so important to incorporate fermented foods into your diet. Fermented foods like yogurt, kimchi, and kombucha are considered superfoods because of how well they promote good bacteria in our guts. This bacteria not only aids in digestion but supports a healthy immune system.
  4. Green tea
    Here’s one that our ancestors may have gotten right from the beginning! For thousands of years, green tea has been celebrated for its incredible anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. The antioxidants and caffeine present in green tea leaves help support a positive metabolism meaning green tea is excellent for those trying to regulate their weight or increase fat burning.
  5. Seeds
    A powerful and versatile superfood we should all try to add a little more. Chia, flax, hemp, and pumpkin seeds–just to name a few– all provide added protein, fiber, and minerals that aid in fighting disease and reducing the risk of certain long-term illnesses. While they may be small, when it comes to nutrients, they are mighty.
