Food Trends: Functional Foods

When people discuss their diets, they’re often likely to talk about adding foods than removing them. Specifically, there are high-performing foods known as “functional foods” that not only enhance the taste of most dishes, but add extra health benefits like improved energy.

This isn’t necessarily a new trend, but certain ingredients like apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, bitter melon, and avocado have become increasingly more popular due their functionality.

The key is finding ways to incorporate these ingredients into your everyday meal choices, but this doesn’t have to be a chore. Being Snack Geniuses, we don’t mind coming up with ways for you to keep up with the best of the latest food trends and make your taste buds happy in the process.

Take the high-performing avocado – it’s not just for guacamole. Our Avocado Toasties recipe is the perfect bite-sized option. It includes the breakfast staple eggs (which you can prepare to your tastes), our Original or Gluten-Free Pretzel Crisps®, and seasoned to perfection with salt and pepper.

Whether you serve it for breakfast or your next Sunday brunch, you won’t find a tastier way to enjoy the heart healthy benefits of avocado.
