The Toast with the Most
Packed with nutrient-dense vitamins, minerals and healthy fats, avocados have become the star spread on today’s trending toast. Healthy, indulgent and visually stunning, avocado toast (toasted bread topped with a mash of avocado and lemon or lime juice) is the go-to canvas for health-conscious foodies. Get creative with toppers such as smoked salmon, red onion and cucumbers; ricotta cheese, pine nuts and chives; or shrimp, cherry tomatoes and basil pesto.
Bowls are Booming
From smoothie and breakfast to quinoa and Buddha, bowls have become a popular platform for creating one easy meal containing an array of nutrients. Bowl meals usually include a combination of grains, greens, vibrant veggies and protein such as beans, meats or eggs. Regardless of which type of bowl you create, it will supply you with the nutrients and energy you need, along with delicious flavors!
Beverages with Benefits
Tasty beverages that cater to health and wellness and benefit the body are on-trend. Kombucha, a fizzy, fermented, chilled tea, is well known for its probiotic content and beneficial bacteria. Popular flavors include mango-lemon, ginger-berry and pumpkin spice. Cold pressed juices and homemade smoothies also pack an array of nutrient-dense ingredients and can be made with a variety of flavor combinations.
The Power of Plant-Based
More people are shifting to plant-based eating styles to reduce meat consumption, support the environment and embrace healthy choices. Plant-based diets include pantry staples such as seeds, nuts, legumes and whole grains, as well as fruits and vegetables. There are also new products that cater to this eating style such as nut-based cheeses, plant-based burgers and more. At select locations, check out Martin’s plant-based brands including Hillary’s, Beyond Meat, Dr. Praeger’s, Ripple, Gardein, Morning Star Farms and Boca.
Put an Egg on it
Sunny side up, poached, hard-boiled or baked, eggs are a kitchen staple that is breaking out of the boundaries of breakfast. Adding an egg topper to meals throughout the day adds flavor, diversifies texture and increases protein content. Try eggs atop avocado toast, burgers, pizza, pasta or pork.
