As we all ring in the New Year, many of us will be making resolutions for healthier living. Whether it involves losing weight, exercising more or finally getting around to scheduling those doctors' appointments, health and wellness issues will continue to be a priority in 2020. To help you start out the new year right, here are three of the biggest health trends expected in 2020:
SWEET POTATO: THE NEW SUPERFOOD CRAZE
Cauliflower has been getting the star treatment in the world of healthy eating for a while, but 2020 might be the year of the sweet potato, according to experts. Despite most people associating it with holiday meals, it is actually one of the most nutritious vegetables and a good source of vitamins A, B and C.
MORE VEGAN OPTIONS AVAILABLE
While vegan and vegetarian options have come a long way, even more plant-based products are expected to hit the market in 2020, including seafood alternatives such as Tuno made from soy protein and seaweed and oat-based drinks from Chobani.
GROUP WORKOUTS REMAIN POPULAR
Fitness experts predict that many people will continue to prefer to work out in small groups. Personal connections along the fitness journey still will be important.
Working out with a group of friends is not only impactful for yourself but for others as well. Working out and fitness breaks down natural barriers and gets people to feel more comfortable and confident with one another.
