Wellness Food Trends

Following wellness food trends is a great way to start changing the way you eat, whether it’s to support your gym goals or just to better your health overall.

In 2023 wellness food trends are still very much alive and thriving. We are seeing more and more recipes that incorporate whole foods, greens, and spices. This can add extra nutrients or just make your food taste better.

With so many wellness food trends to keep track of, it can be hard to know what’s new and why it matters. Whether you’re looking for healthy foods or searching for new health ingredients for smoothies, we’ve got you covered with these trendy foods for 2023.

Gut Health

The food you eat can provide your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to be healthy and strong. But many people don’t take into account how important it is to eat foods that support your gut health.

Foods that have healthy probiotics have grown in popularity in the past year. These types of foods include yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, pickled vegetables, and the ever-popular drink, kombucha. 


Faux Meats

Plant-based meat alternatives have been around for a while, yet it’s still increasing in popularity. There are so many more choices to choose from. Options like soya ‘meat’, ‘bean-based patties’, and the Impossible Burger brand give vegetarians and vegans a source of options. 

It may sound strange, but lab-grown meat has become a popular alternative to avoid the environmental and ethical impact of cattle and chicken farming.

Scientists extract cells from an animal and then grow the meat. When you think about it, biologically it’s still the same meat, but no animals need to be harmed. Lab-grown meat provides the protein our bodies need and can avoid unwanted chemicals and antibiotics. 

Going Sober

Non-alcoholic drinks are a trend we’re seeing in 2023, particularly among younger consumers. In 2002 IFIC’s Food and Health Survey found that avoiding alcohol helps to increase energy and experience less fatigue. 

This is why mocktail trends are hitting shops and bars all around. Take a look at these mocktail drink recipes to try! 

Economical Eats

Food prices have soared in the past year, and unfortunately, we’re not seeing it go down any time soon. Most grocery prices have increased as much as 12% to 25% in some countries. 

This is why economic eating is trending in low-income households. Preparing meals at home, and making sure there’s no food waste is helping families save on costs. Turning to inexpensive proteins like canned beans, legumes, and tuna can help when you’re looking to maintain your health and wellness on a budget.
