  • Greasy or high-fat foods cause distress?
  • Inflammation on the body or joints?
If you are experiencing any of these situations, then why not try some of these new food trends for the new year as a start to your resolution.

The start of the new year is filled with healthy resolutions. The top new items that are considered the best, but it is also the time where people will reflect on what they have been through in the year before the new year starts. Some of them are good, while others are bad; however, it does not stop people from seeing what they can do better by moving forward. When it comes to being healthier for the new year, gyms are being flooded with new members to try and be healthier.

Since many people try to get back to a regular exercise routine, at least, many diets and detox programs are being advertised on T.V. and flying out of the shelves. As many people are trying to get rid of the "holiday weight" and start the new year being healthy. So, what does 2020 have in stores to make sure that many people who are trying to eat healthier, by taking a look at the different types of food and diet trends that made to the list for the new year.


In the 2019 Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo, nutritionist Janet Helm wrote about some of the topics that were presented in the conference, which include detoxes, personalized nutrition, ketogenic diets, and CBD oil and its products. In another article about the food trends for 2020, acknowledge that keto-oriented products and different menu options have been experiencing a considerable surge being popular as people started to embrace a low carb lifestyle in their nutrition and diet. Surprisingly this goes hand in hand with what Helm was predicting as low carb products like crumbs and croutons will become popular in the new year.

Alternative Flours

Besides the low carb coatings and crumbs, there is another food product that has exploded in popularity in the last few years and shows no signs of stopping. Alternative flours have started to gain a reputation for anyone who may have food intolerances or sensitivities or if they are trying to pay more attention to their carb intake. Alternative flours are made from nuts, seeds, non-gluten grains, and cauliflower that have found their way into the shelves of grocery stores and whole food stores as well.

Bone Broth and Collagen

Another food trend that is receiving attention is bone broth and collagen powder. These two popular foods still occupy the hearts of the consumers as they provide the beneficial potential for supporting healthy skin and joints. With collagen powder, it can be added to smoothies, coffee, and tea to make the skin supple and healthy. While with bone broth, it can provide many health benefits to the body. Both of these food items have collagen peptides that the human body needs for healthy, glowing skin. There is evidence that bone broth has been used as a valued component for many different culinary traditions for any food dishes.

Mushrooms and Plant-Based Alternatives

For a healthy immune system, many consumers are eating mushrooms since they have beneficial immune properties that the body needs. Since all the “old” healthy foods are coming back to be new again this year, it is essential to incorporate them into recipes. Mushrooms have been used as medicine for thousands of years.

With all the food trends that have been popping up for the new year, it would be impossible not to recognize the growing presence of plant-based food alternatives to many meat products. Even though these are healthier options for anyone who choose to avoid animal products, the marketing messages may be misleading for anyone who sees an advertisement for plant-based products. According to the information that was found in the EPA, it stated that greenhouse gas emissions are about nine percent in the total amount of US greenhouse gas emissions in the agricultural sectors.

Additionally, the evidence shows that adequately managed ruminant animals can reduce the atmosphere's carbon footprint rather than contributing to it. Looking at both the environmental and the nutritional aspects of both plant-based products and animal products are still being the subjects of a vast heated debate.


With all these new food trends coming into the new year, it is essential to know that they all have beneficial properties that are excellent for the body. With many people aiming to be a little bit healthier in the new year, adding these food products into their diets can help them achieve a healthier version of themselves. Some products are here to help support the entire body and provide an excellent formula for the intestines, the gastrointestinal, the sugar metabolism, and the metabolic system.
