With all the discoveries in the health and wellness field, thereโ€™s always something new going on.

That means that 2017 is a new year full of great new health trends.

If you love eating, and really, who doesnโ€™t, you are going to be happy to try all of these trends.

Donโ€™t forget to let me know which of these you are most excited about.

1. Put Pulses on Your Menu

Put Pulses on Your Menu

This might sound like something you make in the blender, but pulses are actually the seeds of dried crops.2

Examples include beans, lentils, peas and garbanzo beans.

So why are they so healthy?

Because they are packed with protein, fiber and a bunch of other nutrients your body needs for good health.

Look for pulses sold as gluten-free flour or just eat them in their natural state.

Theyโ€™re good any way you prepare them!

2. Ancient Grains Are Making a Comeback

Ancient Grains Are Making a Comeback

Some things are better left in the past (tight rolled jeans, Iโ€™m looking at you), but certain ancient grains are welcome to come back anytime.2

Thatโ€™s because they are healthy and easy to prepare many different meals with.

Think farro, millet, amaranth and bulgur.

Many ancient grains are great picks for a gluten-free diet and you can eat many of them hot or cold, making them a great versatile choice for a healthy meal plan.2

3. People Are Eating Full Fat Foods Again

People Are Eating Full Fat Foods Again

For many decades now, weโ€™ve been told that the full fat versions of our favorite foods are big time no-nos.

That includes yogurt, avocado and nuts, as well as tons of other things.

New research is linking these foods to a healthy heart and a smaller waistline.

The trick is eating them in small portions and rounding them out with lower calorie fare, such as fresh fruits and veggies and lean protein.
