Healthy eating trend in 2020

Healthy eating trends are changing very fast as we become more aware of the nutritional value of authentic natural foods. Like everything else, food has fashion. Like all other fashions, this is the first minority change, but what they are doing today could be mainstream in the next couple of decades.

Most people in the Western world are now eating huge amounts of unprocessed processed foods and unhealthy prepared foods, a reaction against which has already begun. If the current healthy eating trend continues, today’s ‘Cranks’, ‘Food-Wadis’ and ‘Countryrian’ may be the joe soaps of the future.

Growing in popularity, the current trend of the most attractive healthy eating is:

  • Organic
  • Vegetarian
  • Veganism
  • Raw food
  • Juicing
  • Growing up on your own

Healthy eating habits: Organic

Organic food is now much wider than it was ten or twenty years ago and the range of organic food has greatly improved. When organic ketchup appears on the shelves of your local supermarket, it means the market has taken a grassroots trend and understands that it should make money from it.

Organic food to stay here. The real challenge now is to ensure that only the educated class and those who don't have to worry about the price of their food can access it.

In contrast to food-industry promotion, land used in organic food production can be just as productive and efficient as chemical and auxiliary crops and GM food land.

With the current food crisis threat in the world, we should be clear about this ---- GM food and non-organic food cannot be produced in large quantities from the same piece of land. Organic food is more labor-intensive, but not more land-intensive. So, at a time when we need to make the best use of the earth's resources, organic food is the best way to do it because it provides yields without harming our ecosystem, and it'd be helpful to our health!

Healthy eating habits: Vegetarian

Okay, I have to admit a bias here --- I've been a vegetarian almost all my adult life and I have a pretty healthy daughter who never cut a piece of meat with her mouth.

How I started walking alone, how things have changed for vegetarians! But it can be a bit lonely from time to time and restaurants can improve their vegetarian options.

Chefs like Alice Waters and Dennis Cotter have shown that there are things like vegetarian hot meals. So restorers, take note, please!

Using vegetarianism is one of the best ways you can reduce your carbon footprint. Vegetarians are also a great contributor to the amount of food that each of us can provide to share the planet's resources more efficiently.

This is because meat production produces very inefficient use of land as well as significant greenhouse gases.

And it’s one of the best things you can do to improve your own health and longevity. 

Healthy eating habits: Veganism

I know healthy, most people of all ages are those who eat vegetarian food. I think a lot of people are alienated by the notion of veganism because many vegans are so ideological and evangelical about their own personal food choices.

Because of this, people react against it and do not show kindness to the health benefits, environment-benefits and other animals included in this lifestyle choice.

 They mistakenly associate it with extremism, which they fear. Vegetarians, however, are no more extreme than any other dietary choice and are best judged on their own merits rather than the baggage it carries.

If vegetarianism is good for the planet, you can guess it, vegetarians are even more so! I think a great way to start being a responsible environmentalist in the world is to have at least one vegetarian day a week and a vegan day for everyone, perhaps? .... just an idea.

The human digestive system is not designed for the food of all animals that we have become accustomed to eating. By using less of them, we will also make our own health energy.

Healthy eating habits: Raw foods

I suffered from horrible half-life throughout my childhood. At one point in my last adolescence, I could no longer bear it and went in search of a cure. In the end, this journey led me on the Stone Age diet led yes, what Tine said --- exactly what our Stone Age ancestors ate before the discovery of human fire --- everything was raw.

I saved my Stone Age for the whole summer. But I have to admit, it was very difficult and very annoying! I don't know if it was a complete coincidence, but whatever effect this regime had on me, my hifiber never came back and I've been released ever since. So for me it was worth it.

Food-pioneers, starting a raw food diet today, have far more options than I do. New raw food recipes have been invented by the pioneers of raw food with great creativity. Raw foods no longer have to be annoying, mixed, tasteless or uncomfortable. Raw food kitchens are now being enriched as an experiment in raw-food with interesting new combinations. This is the main edge of the culinary industry at the moment because raw food recipes are creating a new path in food creativity. Raw food is Nobel Novel cooking!

As raw foods are fast becoming popular, there are now many kitchen gadgets available to make the raw food diet delicious and sustainable. If they were available to me, on my Stone Age diet, I would still be eating raw today. More and more, I found that I was attracted to eating raw food again, as I learned more about this interesting and evolving cuisine.

Healthy eating habits: Juicing

Juicing is a very popular, healthy eating trend that has real benefits and is not just a habit like other food trends. Juicing is an essential part of any healthy diet because it can give us fantastic amounts of vitamins, enzymes and other micro nutrients. You can create the most amazing combinations when you are creative with your juicer recipes. Fresh juices made in a good machine with fresh, organic ingredients, which keep the nutrients intact, health benefits that are actually good for us - they really help to keep us well and save us from disease. I suggest that every kitchen should have a good juicer for daily use.

Healthy eating habits: Growing up on your own

About a year ago, on the street where I grew up, in the suburbs of Plump Upmarket, there was a front garden that stood out from the rest ---- it was full of vegetables and fruits of all colors and sizes. They weren’t in clean cleanliness, like my neighborhood neighbors put vegetable patches in their back garden. The grains of this shy, front-garden felt a lot of chaos and because of this I always thought there was an unusual beauty in this garden.

The woman who owned the house was a local African. To him, in front of his house, it is perfectly normal to use his patch land to raise some food. Although economically, he did not need to raise his own diet, because they were a couple of physicians in comfort, he could not lose his connection with the way he was in our country. It was his duty to make good use of the land which was deep in his mentality.

An environmental, environmental responsibility that we have lost in the Western world. "Why hide the food in the back and try and put a manicure lawn in front. The food is beautiful!" He would say.

He certainly was. And there were other benefits besides the aesthetics of his front garden. It was less destructive to the environment than perfect lawns --- it was surrounded --- maintained with free chemical seeds and frequent gasoline lawn-glass gallons.

I remember him now, shaking into the purple flowers of the artichoke flower, as many of my friends and colleagues follow the healthy eating trend and transform their lawns into food-gardens after about 15 years. Our African neighbor was before the curve, but now we’re all catching up!

If you can’t believe where your food is coming from, what better way than to grow yourself? What good is a web site if it simply "blends in" with everything else out there?

If all of our planetary sources need to be redundant, what better way could there be than to use the planet's own tiny patch to feed us? In the 21st century, your own growth is the way to go!
