Every year welcomes its newest batch of weird food trends circulating on healthy Instagram pages, and this year has been no different. From vegetable coffee to fermented soups, there is a lot that we don’t like the sound of, but are apparently great for you. Here are some of the health and wellness food trends taking 2018 by storm.

1. Moringa

The moringa tree is being hailed as a superfood because of the sheer amount of nutrients within it. We’re talking vitamin C, A, iron, and zinc. Available in the likes of tablets, teas, and a ton more foody¬†bits. Benefits have been said to include lowering cholesterol and inflammation, so this healthy trend is worth a try.

2. Essential Oil Recipes

Essential oils in food are essentially used as flavouring agents, but they provide a great source of wellness too. Lavender, peppermint, ginger and cardamom are all oils that can be used in recipes, to give a few examples. Just make sure to use a recipe, as some oils can be slightly on the less healthy side if too much is used.
