From anxiety to dry skin, insomnia to bloating, food can be a defining factor in the difference to your health.
In 2017, we have seen the rise of the purple veg, from purple cabbage to purple potatoes. These veggies have been said to be ‘full of potent nutrients and antioxidants like anthocyanin‘. Purple potatoes for example, have four times as many antioxidants as normal white spuds, while purple cabbage has twice the amount of polyphenols as green cabbage, which help prevent degenerative and cardiovascular diseases
More than ever, coconut is becoming an integral part of 2017 diets. But forget coconut oil and water, Wholefoods Market have revealed that ‘coconut flour tortillas, coconut sugar aminos and more unexpected coconut-based products are on the rise. Virtually every component of this versatile fruit-nut-seed (coconuts qualify for all three!) is being used in new applications. The sap is turned into coconut sugar as an alternative to refined sweeteners; the oil is used in a growing list of natural beauty products; and the white flesh of the coconut is now in flours, tortillas, chips, ice creams, butters and more.’
