The top wellness predictions for 2017 are out!  The last year has seen a lot of weird and some wonderful nutrition trends, find out what the next year has to offer...

Fighting inflammation

Inflammation fighting food is rapidly becoming a major healthy priority and for very good reason; inflammation has been linked to heart disease, bloating and some cancers.  Research into inflammation fighting foods is continuing and growing.

The latest trend for inflammation-fighting ingredients was that of turmeric, from turmeric teas to turmeric lattes.  Ginger tea is also on the rise.

Many people see gluten, grains and dairy as inflammatory ingredients and are avoiding these.  Substitutes for these are zucchini noodles, nut milks and vegan cheese.  It is very to speak to a health professional if you want to omit any ingredients from your diet.

Plant Protein

Gone are the days when the idea that protein must come from an animal.  Rice, pea and hemp powder proteins are popping up everywhere from smoothies to nutrition bars.

The trend in 2017 will see those who care about their health, sustainability as well as animal welfare an opportunity to eat plant-based proteins in the traditional dishes they love and adore.

Plant protein is no longer a niche market for vegans or athletes, it is for the wider community. Research shows that meatless Mondays are on the rise.

Power smoothies

Breakfast smoothies are now the new rage and getting bigger and better.  You can throw anything in the blender.  All you need are top notch ingredients and a good blender.  Kale, frozen bananas, berries, protein powder, maca powder, cacao, spinach, peanut butter are just some of the ingredients you can throw into your blender for an all in one meal. 


Water is the new black.  Forget about those juices and soft drinks as water is taking over the health hype.  Water with slices of lemon to lime, to a few drops of stevia are being added to that cold glass of water to replace the sugar-coated drink alternatives.

Wellness inspiration of the week

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills… There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind… So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself. — MARCUS AURELIUS
