In 2020, we predict you will see food trends leaning away from indulgence and into a more health-minded area, and with promises like better gut health and greater nutrient-density, adding these so-called healthful foods to your diet might seem like a no-brainer. But not all of the dishes, ingredients, proteins, and vitamins are created equal. Some of those foods make grandiose claims, lose their nutritional value in the way they’re created, or are more popular than they’re good for you (or even each of the above).


You are not the only one. Approximately 66% per cent of millennials stated they are making a conscious attempt to decrease their alcohol intake, based on Nielsen research. Firms like Curious Elixirs are leaning into the trend with booze-free cocktails.
