Western foodie trends are similar to those found in Malaysia in a number of ways. In both places, eating out is a bad habit many people are looking to change. Further, to get the most from their all around eating habits, people are looking to what they drink. If you’re trying to change your image, looking for healthy alternatives in Western diet trends couldn’t be a better place to start. Diet may not be the most popular word but it’s important to be mindful of what you put in your body, especially when personal training.
Whether you’re looking for the latest trends for a fresh challenge or to improve your health, this list has you covered.
Choose Meal Prep Instead of Fast Food
The first trend we’re focusing on is meal prep. Recently, a number of businesses have upped their game by offering easy; step-by-step make at home meal kits. This allows busy individuals and families to make the most of their time while enjoying a nutritious meal. Not only that but with frequent deliveries, you can use fresh ingredients daily. That means you never have to throw out spoiled food again.
You can compare this trend of ready to cook meals to Malaysia’s fast food culture. Everyone wants convenience. By following this diet trend, you don’t have to sacrifice your health to save time. In fact, by using the instructions provided in a meal kit, your skills grow. You might not need those skills now, but they may come in handy in the future. Being able to cook good food, from a variety of cultures can serve you well your entire life.
With all of these benefits, it’s no wonder that meal prep services and kits are catching on so fast. Not only that but many meal prep services will cater to the latest diet trends. That means you will always be ahead of the latest wave and health innovation.
Choose a Better Beverage for Better Health
Tea is a part of Malaysian culture. Now, in the Western world, tea is having a bit of a renaissance. More and more people are discovering the delicious benefits of tea every single day. That leads to new companies with new tea blends. Though traditional blends may serve you well for health reasons, having something to treat your taste buds to can be fun.
Dropping cola in exchange for another flavored beverage, including tea, is on trend. Fruit infused water is another option–as is partaking in a juice cleanse or fast. Ingredients for green smoothies seem to be on everyone’s shopping list.
Flexitarian and Vegan Diets – Traditional or Modern
The latest diet trends appeal to everyone in the sense that they are so broad. Sure, the ketogenic diet focuses fats while the Mediterranean diet focuses on fish and whole grains. Neither of these diets disagrees with the fact that by choosing a diet rich in plant-based foods is healthy.
Relishing in plant based foods is overall a smart choice. Flexitarian means to be vegetarian much of the time but still be flexible enough to eat meat on special occasions and even a few times a week. This label allows flexitarians to maintain a healthy diet without restricting themselves completely. Given the number of vegan-friendly traditional dishes offered in Malaysia, becoming a flexitarian shouldn’t be too difficult.
If you go a step further, you can try on veganism. By partaking of no animal products (no meat, eggs, or dairy), you can challenge yourself to take on one of the healthiest diets around. The vegan diet is so healthful that you are much less likely to be overweight on it even if you only eat out. Nowadays, vegan bakeries and meal prep services have made going vegan as painless as possible.
You Don’t Have to Look Far to Be On Trend
Many of these diet trends aren’t new per se. Examples of them may even be found deeply rooted in Malaysian culture. This is proof that staying truly healthy doesn’t have to be complicated. Even the most modern trends all circle back to the same things: Simple is better. If that means you need to have meal kits delivered, so you never feel stressed about making up a menu, do that.
If you feel adventurous and want to try a dozen new types of tea every week, go ahead. The same can go for new fruits or vegetables. You could challenge yourself to create a handful of vegan recipes one week rather than eating out at that new fast food restaurant. There are plenty of options you can use to take advantage of the healthy, Western trends listed above. Time and imagination are your only limitations.
