A new wellness trend seems to emerge every day. Diets like the 5:2 diet and the Keto diet are popular trends that have added to the dynamic of the growing health and wellness industry. Now, as 2017 dawns, a few more exciting trends are shaping the wave of awareness for living and eating well.
If no two people are alike, why should there only be one way to diet? Companies are now making an extreme effort to take differentiated approaches when creating diet and meal preparation plans. Information about Habit reveals this company uses customer DNA to suggest optimized meal plans. The at-home nutrition test kit helps a person find out about their unique biology via blood samples and cheek swab tests that are analyzed with decision tree logic. The relationship between the result and metrics used is backed by years of scientific research. Talented chefs then create hand-crafted and high-quality meals that are tailored to your body’s ratio.
During 2016 chef Dan Barber began a movement to create awareness about food waste in the United States. Roughly 40 percent, or 70 billion pounds, of food in the US goes to waste every year. Barber’s movement, ‘wastED’, strives to create delicious and appetizing food out of the foods that are usually thrown away.
Another contribution to the food waste crisis is a store called Ugly Greens, a sister company to the NYC rooftop grower Gotham Greens. This market may not be as aesthetically pleasing as other stores, but they also sell their products for $1 less and bring awareness via packaging that most brands throw away perfectly good food.
For the remainder of 2017 health establishments will make their pricing more affordable and position their marketing toward everyday consumers. With so many diet and nutrition trends, the age of living well is set to continue evolving.
