Tis’ that time of year again! Every year since it’s inception, the crack team at ActiveBeat.com has gotten together as the end of the year draws near to discuss the big, and often strange and surprising, health food trends expected in the new year. To be clear, we haven’t tested many of these ourselves, and the verdict is still out on a lot of these so called food trends, but it’s fun to try and guess what’ll be hot in the new year.
So if you’re up for it folks, hop aboard the superfood train on route to our wonderful and weird health and wellness predictions for 2017…
1. Omega-3s from Seaweed
Yes, you heard it first from us (via Yoga Magazine) that the newest and coolest omega-3 fatty acid source will be had from algae. YUM!
With more and more individuals opting for vegetarian and vegan lifestyles, a plant based omega 3 supply makes perfect sense. Really, anyone who won’t or can’t eat fish (due to an allergy) can now boost their essential fatty acid (DHA and EPA) intake via algae and algae supplements instead of from oily fish.
