According to some of the health industry’s biggest experts and influencers, 2017 will see us ditching coconut oil and kale smoothies for fossil shell flour and sober socialising (yes, really). Keep scrolling to find out what other wellness trends are about to be EVERYWHERE.
Diatomaceous earth or fossil shell flour as it is commonly known is going to blow up in 2017. This raw plant based whole food is the secret to good gut health, shiny hair, strong nails and glowing skin. Think of it as an ingredient in your daily smoothie and you can add it to pancakes and make gut gummies out of it too! — Lee Holmes, nutritionist and Instagram star.
I think that more mainstream restaurants and eateries are going to start incorporating creatively healthy options on their menus, such as celeriac ‘mashed potatoes’, spiralized kinds of pasta, and cauliflower rice. — Alissandra Maffucci, Inspiralized founder.
After travelling to the USA and visiting Whole Foods and eating at local cafes I noticed the rise of avocado oil being used where coconut oil may have been used previously! I’ve since researched the benefits and it’s really [great] for lowering blood pressure and helping relieve arthritis and psoriasis. — Ally May Hayward, wellness and style blogger.
I think one of the biggest trends of 2017 will be shifting away from high-intensity workouts and towards lower intensity workouts (not too low, of course!) that focus equally on strengthening and toning. Many have experienced a burnout effect of going too hard at each and every workout which even leads to injury. A slightly lower intensity allows you to be more mindful of proper form and proper breathing, all while focusing on toning and shaping your best bod. — Anna Victoria, personal trainer and Instagram star.
The emphasis will be on foods that support gut health, namely fermented foods (like kombucha, kefir, and fermented vegetables) and also probiotics. — Jessica Sepel, Instagram influencer and nutritionist.
I’m starting to see people shift their drinking habits and move towards sober socialising. Brands like Kombrewcha (love their original flavour) are making it easy for people to be able to go out, have a good time and not suffer the consequences of hard liquor while also getting the many benefits of kombucha. I also really love Dirty Lemon‘s detox drink and have been seeing it pop up everywhere—the girls at the studio are always carrying theirs around.” — Vanessa Packer, ModelFit founder.
People are becoming more aware of where their food comes from and actually caring about locally-sourced produce. Plant-based diets support the rise of less processed foods and less meat — a lot of people have reported feeling better giving up meat too. Plant-based seems to be a U.S.-based trend too. — Jessica Sepel, Instagram influencer and nutritionist.
