The wellness forecast for 2016 is here! Take a look at top 5 healthy eating trends for this year.

Fermented foods
Gut bacteria are now being considered the most important thing when it comes to our overall health, so it’s no surprise that we could benefit immensely by adding fermented foods into our diets.

Kefir, miso paste, kombucha, sauerkraut, etc. are all healthy and a budget-friendly choice for this year, so get on the train!

Carbs are back
Yes, the day has come. Bread is about to get a revival this year, though the gluten-free craze is about to stay. So say hello to a family of new supergrains: farro, kamu and amaranth, and welcome back your beloved rice and oats.

This trend will only go bigger in 2016: more and more home kitchens and restaurants are looking for ways to minimize food waste. “Ugly” fruits and vegetables will finally get their chance, not only in grocery stores but in fancy restaurants as well.

Also, reinventing leftovers is not only a great wallet-friendly idea, but the one which will minimize food waste the most.

Plant-based diet is not going anywhere
Great news for vegans and vegetarians: kale chips are bringing their less-famous cousins on the stage – lentil chips, bean chips, rice chips and many others.

Also, nut milks are finally getting the attention they deserve. Thanks to lactose intolerance more people are drinking nut milks than ever before.

Seaweed
Seawead is the new superfood. It’s packed with fiber, good fats and iodine, which is great news for your thyroid hormone. You can substitute it for traditional sodium salt because it can help lower blood pressure, or use granulated seaweed instead of flour!
