It can be challenging to prepare a healthy weekly food plan for yourself. Many health buffs want their meals both nutritious and flavorful.

American supermarket chain Whole Foods, which specializes in healthier food and snack options, has predicted interesting and bizarre food trends for this year. Stock up on the following organic products online now, before the rise of these new flavors!




The trend: Floral flavors

Try: Sekaya Botanic Infusion Hibiscus Petals

Lavender, hibiscus, and elderflower flavors are coming in a big way this year. Using flowers is a unique and aromatic approach to bringing refreshing sweetness into drinks and snacks, in place of sugar and artificial flavoring.
Try this Sekaya’s infusion which uses natural hibiscus petals and other ingredients to create a warm, relaxing cup of tea.

The trend: Mushrooms

Mushrooms naturally boost the immune system and act as antioxidants for the body. They’re often used as a protein-rich meat replacement, like these organic burger patties made entirely out of mushrooms!

Also watch out for beverage applications of mushrooms this year, as Whole Foods predicts cocoa, chocolate, and coffee pairings to be all the rage this year.

The trend: Super powders

Try: Premium Matcha Green Tea Powder (100g)

 Matcha, maca root, and cacao powders are predictably going into more and more beverages. Whole Foods tells us to expect vegetable powders made from kale, spirulina, and other herbs like turmeric.

 The trend: Puffed and popped snacks

Try: California Crunch Cassava Chips

We can also look forward to crunchy snacks! Chefs and food experts have developed methods of cooking and combining ingredients in ways that are ultimately more healthy than traditionally deep-fried chips.

Companies like California Crunch have started rolling out puffed snacks with ingredients such as seaweed, cassava, parsnips, and more.
