Purple is in!
One trend that we found to be common in the different sources is; purple colour is going to be in! Surprised as it is not about the fashion but about the food? But this is what we have found from the different resources. All that is purple in colour is in, like purple cabbage, purple carrots, purple potatoes, a bowl of blueberry acai and purple smoothies (having blue berries and bananas). This would be helpful from the health point of view also. The purple vegetables have the antioxidants like anthocyanin and the different other nutrients.

Another interesting trend that we found; is the trend of tacos. According to BBC good food in this year hyper-regional food will be trending. Authenticity will be the first choice of the people, there are different recipes for the tacos but if you are the fan of authentic Mexican taste then you can add the typical Mexican flavours to it.
2017 is expected to be more inclined towards the healthy non-alcoholic beverages. Forbes has recommended the combination of the fruits and the flowers for adding the flavours to the different beverages.

Cold pressed juices, charcoal activated water and mocktails can be used instead of the alcoholic drinks.

Get ready for a twist in your breakfast! It is expected that in 2017 the texture of the breakfast will be changed. You will be eating something crunchy for the breakfast may be the fried chicken. So you should prepare yourself for such breakfasts as it is possible that you would not be offered with the soft and smooth breakfast such as the scrambled egg or the oatmeal.
Switching to healthier snacks
Snacks cannot be eliminated from the list, but they can be moved to the healthier snacks. Get something healthy for your snacks like the zucchini chips or baked potato chips. It is recommended that you should cut down the sugar content and increase the protein intake in the form of the healthy snacks. Instead of relying on the packed snacks; take your own homemade snacks with you. You can create your own bites by making small chicken rolls or stuffing the pita bread with chicken and cucumber or make a small cup of the yoghurt, healthy fruits and the nuts. Instead of using the fried snacks prefer to bake them.
