While 2019 was all about kombucha, hemp seeds and ‘moon’ milk, all these products will give way to completely plant-based products, banana flour, legume paste and the most ancient cereals, said UK nutritionist Kristen Beck.
According to her, the key diet trend predictions of a healthy diet in 2020 will be vegetable proteins in particular and a completely vegetable diet in general, Daily Mail reported.
‘Without doubt the focus of 2020 will be our ongoing fascination with plant-based foods (particularly plant-based proteins) and a continued uptake and popularity of plant-based diets,’ Australian registered nutritionist, Kristen Beck, told FEMAIL. ‘Whether you decide to go completely vegan or just incorporate more plant-based meals into your diet (flexitarian) the vital importance plants in our diet both in terms of our health and the well-being of the planet will form the basis of our food and nutrition trends this year.’
According to the expert, today Western countries consume too much meat, and the negative side of this practice has become obvious. However, not all plant foods are healthy. Vegetables, fruits, beans, seeds and nuts, as well as a moderate amount of whole grains, benefit most.
