Healthy eating has made considerable strides in the past few years, as eating clean is not only good for you; it’s cool to do, which is precisely why brands are continually creating unique ways to make healthy eating fun. There are so many different types of protein bars, coffee drinks, and yogurts out there. You could spend an hour browsing those alone in the grocery store. And if the healthy eating trend continues to advance, the numbers of brands will continue to as well.
These are the healthy food brands we’re expecting to see a lot in the upcoming year:
Rice, made from vegetables. So you can get your servings of carbs and veggies all in one. With diets like keto taking the health world by storm, it’s no surprise a carb-less rice dish would make an appearance. RightRice is made of lentil flour, chickpea flour, and vegetable powders and is high protein but low carb.
You’ve probably heard of Perfect Bars, which are delicious whole-food protein bars made with clean ingredients, but now you can expect to see Perfect Snacks. The ideal healthy sweet treat, Perfect Snacks come in a variety of flavors, from milk chocolate to dark chocolate coconut.
Because the world was waiting for a healthy version of beef jerky, but with a twist: it’s plant-based. This year, Krave is releasing plant-based jerky and pork rings in two flavors, smoked chipotle and Korean BBQ, so vegetarians and meat-eaters alike can enjoy that glory that is jerky.
Chickpea pasta that’s low in carb but high in protein and tastes eerily similar to the real thing. Made up of 90 percent chickpeas, Banza is excellent for those trying to eat fewer carbs or just want a twist on their regular pasta dish. Beyond just pasta, Banza now offers mac and cheese, lasagna, and rice.
Don’t worry. Beyond Meat isn’t going anywhere in 2020. In fact, it’s just getting started. Beyond Meat took the plant-based world by storm with its revolutionary product that changed the game as we know it. Now available in many fast-food chains like Dunkin’ Donuts, Beyond Meat has a lot of room to grow.
Oat milk coffee? Say less. I’m already on my way to the grocery store. Van Leeuwen recently came out with vegan oat-milk based ice cream in flavors like Honeycomb, Salted Caramel, and Choc Chip Cookie Dough.
If eating cereal for every meal wasn’t a highlight of your childhood, you’re lying. But what if you could enjoy cereal for dinner as you did as a kid, but it was healthy? Magic Spoon is just that. With 12g of protein and 3g net carbs, the option for eating cereal for dinner as an adult still very well stands.
Made from coconut milk, adaptogens, and ethically-sourced ingredients, REBBL drinks are plant-based, organic, and amazing. Flavors include Vanilla Spice, Mint Chip, and Reishi Chocolate.
