Health Trends of 2019

Every year, new health trends emerge and become an important part of health culture. In 2018, we saw the emergence of alternative milk substitutes, group fitness, wellness beverages, and activity trackers.

Now, around half way through 2019 we see these emerging health trends:

Eco-Friendly Packaging

This trend has been growing with reusable and paper straws to help the environment, but it’s growing in 2019. These eco-friendly packages will be replacing single-use packaging in the food industry and in grocery stores. You will start to see more compostable and reusable packaging. Some ideas of eco-friendly packaging is biodegradable bags, compostable cups, plates and cutlery and reusable boxes and bags.

Plant-based Vegan and Vegetarian Meals

In 2019, you will see a rise in the amount of plant-based foods in grocery stores, restaurants and fast food restaurants. One major event that has already happened in 2019 is that Burger King released its Impossible Whopper in the United States. This is the vegetarian option of their classic Whopper Burger. More plant-based options for vegetarians and vegans are emerging on the market. In studies, looking at plant-based diets, it has shown that eating a plant-based diet can help reduce blood pressure, treating diabetes, and improve cholesterol levels. You will see more options of these plant-based foods in 2019.

Healthy Snack Foods

In 2019, you will see more of your favourite snacks get a healthier twist. This has been a growing trend since 2018, but in 2019 you will see more and more options of healthier snacks. An example of one of these healthier snacks is organic potato chips cooked in coconut oil. You will also see a rise in the amount of refrigerated healthy snacks. Refrigerated protein bars, bottled smoothies, yogurt, hummus and more are going to be some of the new upgraded snacks you will see start to hit the market.

Online and Home Workouts

This trend allows you to get personal training from the comfort of your home. Gyms and fitness studios can be seen as intimidating situations, so people are turning to at home and online workouts. An example of this trend is the rise in purchases of at home workout machines like the Peloton or The Mirror workout machine.

Food Intolerance Testing

This trend has been around, but is growing in popularity as at home food sensitivity testing is growing. Food sensitivity and allergies have been confused with each other. If you are food sensitive to something, you can still eat it in moderation. Many at home tests can tell you these sensitivities.
