Looking and eating healthy will never go out of style. But, what exactly does a healthy diet mean? No matter how complicated it might seem, leading a healthy lifestyle is fun and easy. Therefore, let’s take a closer look into the healthiest lifestyle trends that are going to be major in 2019 and you tell us what you think.
Strawberry Banana and Chia Seed Smoothie
The title already made our mouth water, so let’s start. Strawberries are known for boosting immunity, fighting bad cholesterol, regulating blood pressure and promoting eye health whereas bananas help you improve digestive health, give you energy, and are simply yummy. Chia seeds are loaded with nutrients and are consumed by many people around the globe who advocate a healthy lifestyle. For those who love both of these fruits, this creamy and sweet smoothie is the most perfect way to start your day. All you need is one cup of frozen strawberries, one fresh or frozen banana, one tablespoon of chia seeds and a cup of non-dairy milk of your preference. It’s made in less than five minutes, and not only does it look delicious, but it also tastes heavenly. Plus, it’s gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. You can also try a strawberry banana chia seed pudding from the same combination of ingredients, which is super delish as well.
Keeping It Both Healthy and Tasty
The healthy food trend is definitely here to stay, and it isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Preparing healthy food doesn’t always mean we must sacrifice the great and rich taste of our meals. Also, there’s an online service that provides a wide range of savory healthy food whenever you’re busy or too lazy to cook. The service also ensures that your meals are nutritionally balanced and perfectly portioned.
You Can Eat a Healthy Rainbow, Too
We’ve seen those sprinkled rainbow explosion cakes taking center stage at every child’s birthday party, but let’s talk about brightly colored baked goods with natural dyes. You can easily color the food at home with fruits and veggies you already have in your kitchen. Use beets for the pink dye and blackberries for a lavender hue. For the perfect light pink or red, use cherries, spinach or kale for green, blueberries for the light blue, and turmeric for the mellow yellow. So long chemical dyes, and hello natural food coloring!
No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake
This refreshing, raw treat will make you crave for more once you’re done with the last piece. This cake is made with cashew as its base, and a mixture of blueberries, plain Greek yogurt and vanilla extract for the filling. It tastes just as it sounds – incredibly yummy!
Art in a Jar
Fruit-infused water is the ultimate detox beverage for those who aren’t keen on drinking plain water. Drinking infused water makes you feel energized, keeps you healthy and helps you with weight loss. You could use any fruit combo you like, and it’s best to leave infused water in the refrigerator overnight so the flavors are actually infused. This life-changing recipe is great for every day, not only for the hot summer months. Refreshing, simple and delicious. If you take this water on the go in a bigger jar, not only are you staying hydrated but you also get to eat the yummy snacks that stayed on the bottom.
What if we told you that you don’t have to kill an animal in order to get meat? Fake meat is growing in popularity and it actually comes from a plant. The worldwide-famous burgers that are made with this meat alternative smell like meat, look like meat, taste like meat and they are called Impossible Burgers. Those who have tried it said it’s no different from eating a beef burger.
Hemp milk is the newbie on the block and it’s a plant-based alternative to cow’s milk. Made from whole hemp seeds, this healthy drink is rich in minerals, healthy fats, and high-quality plant protein. It can be used for coffee, cereal or smoothies. Will hemp milk be the new oat milk of 2019? We’ll have to wait and see.
Popsicle Game Is Getting Even Bigger
There’s no such feeling as enjoying homemade fruit popsicles while beating the summer heat. No refined sugar, no artificial flavors or anything that’s against the rules of healthy eating. Frozen fruit popsicles beat out many of the dye-filled and sugary treats that you’ll find in a local store, and they are super delish and nourishing.
By taking these healthy trending tips into account, you’ll be on the right path to staying healthy and nourished with the carefully selected diet.
