1. The top 10 food and restaurant trends of 2016 according to Forbes Magazine are pretty awesome! My three favorites are coconut everything, meal kits and turmeric. Coconut is one of my favorite flavors and I love adding unsweetened coconut shavings whenever possible. Meal kits are something I finally tried! HelloFresh was awesome when I tried it for the first time a few months ago. Turmeric is another flavor that I’ve been adding to eggs and veggies and protein dishes. It’s an earthy spice that can help fight inflammation. Check out the food trends for yourself!

2. Do you think fitness checks should be done at your annual doctors appointment? New research was done that found that aerobic fitness (think cardio) was a good measure of general health and heart health. While other risk factors remain important fitness levels may be a good indicator of poor health. Personally, I think it’s an interesting idea that could gain some traction if more research is done. Thoughts?
3. Snacking is my favorite part of the day. It seems that our millennial generation has conjured up gourmet snacking. Traditional snacks such as snack cakes, chips, pretzels, etc. are less popular than healthier, gourmet snack options these days. I always opt for something creative and nontraditional when it comes to snacking because I want to look forward to my snack and be able to savor it. What’s your favorite gourmet snack?
