Most Popular Healthy Foods Of 2017

Share

Every year, certain ingredients and dishes emerge as trendy “must-haves”—even if it’s something we’ve been eating for centuries. Just a few years ago, for example, no one had even heard of quinoa (which has been around for at least 5,000 years), and now not a day goes by when we don’t see it on a menu.

These Foods & Aren’t Just Being Whipped Up By Chefs Or Served In Popular Restaurants

They’ve become mainstream amongst home cooks across America, and thousands of eaters are also ordering them through delivery services. UberEATS has seen a surge in fresh, nutritious delivery orders (so long, pizza and burgers), so they compiled a list of the top 20 healthy food trends for 2017. The data is based on UberEATS order patterns so far this year.

Unsurprisingly, avocado is at the top of the list—it seems this trend is here to stay. According to their data, the fruit is the most popular healthy food in more than 16 cities across the country. Kale has dropped to number 8 on the list, making way for poke (a Hawaiian raw fish salad), edamame, radishes, and pickles. Bulgur and brown rice have replaced quinoa as the resident grains/seeds in the top 20.

The fact that tofu rounds out the top 10 is a nod to people re-thinking the amount of meat they consume—and how it appears on their plates. More and more, in home kitchens, restaurants, and new cookbooks, we’re seeing veggies take center stage with meat as a side, or a garnish. Check out the full list below, and use it as an opportunity to try out some new healthy ingredients this year.
