There is no doubt that 2020 was a year filled with turbulence and uncertainty. The pandemic was a crisis that presented all of us with a unique set of challenges. However, health was at the forefront of our minds, media and social interactions. Being able to stay healthy became a goal that each of us had in common. What does 2021 have in store? None of us knows yet, but here are the 2021 nutrition trends you need to know.
The pandemic highlighted in particular the food shortages and insecurity that came about due to the panic buying of supermarket essentials. In 2021, we will need to work together to ensure that these shortages do not happen again and there will be a big move to adopt a more sustainable method of eating such as:
- Growing your own herbs, fruits and vegetables. Being able to source produce from your own yard yields a sense of reward and is also a fun task for the entire family.
- Adopting a plant-based diet. With more of us looking for more sustainable ways of eating, choosing to eat more plant-based meals is a key trend of 2021.
Knowing where your food comes from and the safety and nutrition of its sources has been a trending topic in the past few years. Choosing to purchase products that are made locally with natural ingredients will not only help boost the economy but also your health.
When it comes to information, you don’t need to look further than your local supermarket to realise that consumers are overloaded. Being able to understand what you are reading as well as why you are choosing to eat a particular food will be a key focus of 2021.
Our range of Bindi products provides a clean and natural source of energy and nutrition. No matter what your needs, you will be able to find a product suited to you.
Sugar Free Nutrition:
Another trend that has been around in recent years; sugar-free nutrition, will continues to be a strong health trend in 2021. The negative health effects of sugar have been well documented. Overall a shift to lower sugar products and more natural sweeteners remains a key focus.
Here at Bindi Nutrition, we have created a range of products that are sugar-free. Our range is designed for athletes and fitness enthusiasts to enhance their performance and recovery, without the harmful effects of added sugars which are prevalent in so many more traditional sports nutrition brands.
2021 will continue the sugar-free movement.
Low carb, flexitarian, sugar-free, keto diet; there are all terms that have been developed or focused on in recent years. Personalised nutrition is when you are given a plan that outlines your own needs and gives you a list of foods to include and avoid. Having a personalised plan is beneficial to help you reach your goals and improve your health.
Focusing on individual nutrition is a trend that has been soaring in popularity in recent years and will continue to explode in 2021 as people turn to experts for a personalised plan.
Adaptogens are non-toxic plants and herbs which can help your body adapt to life’s challenges – and this year has thrown plenty of them our way. These herbs aid our bodies in reacting to or recovering from both short- and long-term physical or mental stress. Some also boost immunity and overall well-being and each adaptogen has a different effect on the body, so the choice of which one to take will depend on the result you seek. For example, if you’re both frazzled and fried, ashwagandha such as in our Bindi Hot Chocolate might calm and relax you. Utilising a unique combination of adaptogens which are personalised to your needs will be popular in 2021.
2021 will be a year where the focus will be primarily on staying healthy in a post pandemic world. Nutrition trends will focus on sustainability, education, sugar-free and personal plans. These trends will be at the forefront of 2021 and will shape the next generation of nutrition trends. At Bindi Nutrition we are so proud to lead the way with our clean and natural, Australian made nutrition products.
