Top Healthy Plant-Based Food Trends for 2017

Health and wellness experts agree eating our veggies is good for everyone.  Although the vegan lifestyle has been around for many years, researchers have predicted a further expansion of vegetarian, vegan and other plant-focused interest in 2017. “The power of plants” is one of 6 key trends for 2017’s food and drink categories and according to Dr. Oz, the vegan diet will be the “single biggest movement of 2017.”

Plant-based foods are trending in 2017 especially popular with health-conscious consumers and athletes are plant-based proteins which have been heralded as “sustainable, affordable and nutritious.” With plant-based proteins you get antioxidants, fiber, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals on top of protein. Researchers have also found that plant-based diets are associated with reduced risk of certain health conditions like hypertension, and obesity.

Plants that are high in protein like peas, spinach and kale also have another thing in common, Chlorophyll. That’s right, the thing that gives these plants their color has been touted as a “superfood” providing a number of health benefits. According to a study by the University of Oregon’s Linus Pauling Institute, Chlorophyll has been found to be helpful with everything from eye and skin health, to proper blood clotting. The powerful antioxidant and cleansing properties of Chlorophyll have made it a favorite amongst leading wellness experts and healthy active consumers.

So why not add a deliciously refreshing chlorophyll-rich drink to your next meal? Verday Chlorophyll Water represents an exciting new category of healthy beverage that provides the antioxidant and detoxifying benefits of a green juice with 0 calories, 0 diet sweeteners, 0 preservatives. Available in Blueberry, Watermelon, Coconut, Cucumber and Lemongrass Ginger flavors, each bottle of Verday is packed with 100mg of Chlorophyll; more than 2 shots of wheatgrass, 4 cups of spinach or 12 cups of arugula.
