Top 10 foods trends for 2017

Nutrition NewsWho doesn’t love learning about new food trends – we sure do! Recently, HuffPost Living Canada came out with a list of their top 10 food trends for the year. Using the theme “never say never,” there are a number of interesting trends that made this year’s list. We love that peanuts can fit into almost every category. Their versatility, healthy fat content and plant-based diet qualities make them a crowd-pleaser for 2017.

Here are few ways that peanuts and peanut butter can be incorporated into the new food trends:

All meals come from a bowl – Add peanuts as a smoothie bowl topper for extra crunch and protein.

Goodbye juicing, souping is taking over! – A dollop of peanut butter in soup takes the flavour up a notch.

Fat is not the enemy – Heart-healthy, unsaturated fat, protein, vitamins and minerals – need we say more?

Doner kebob is taking over Los Angeles – Peanut butter-based sauces and marinades can jazz up lamb, chicken, veal or pork. Check out our Thai Flank Steak Kebobs.

Plant-based eating is on the rise – Peanuts + plant-based eating = healthy people, healthy environment.
