“(Millennials) want what they call ‘clean’ food. What they really mean is that they want ‘real’ food,” To get you started, a website that reaches nearly 83 per cent of millennials show us 5 clean foods to eat as millennials.
1. Avocado toast can make for a nutritious breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. Avocados are a good source of monounsaturated fatty acids, which are heart-healthy and serve as a good fat replacement for butter. The fruit (yes, avocados are fruit) also contains 10 to 11 grams of fibre per avocado.
2. Cauliflower is a vegetable common to many household crispers that have taken on a new popularity as a carb replacement in the form of cauliflower crust and rice. These are lower in calories and carbohydrates than their starchy meaty counterparts and, obviously, work for vegans and vegetarians.
3. Kale has been a darling of leafy green lovers for years now. It provides nutrients that are important for healthy bones, heart, brain and gut. Millennials have transformed the ingredient into kale chips, burrito wraps, and juice — another great way to cut the carbs.
4. Matcha is made from steamed green tea leaves that are ground into a powder that can make elegant drinks, baked goods or creamy desserts. The benefits of green tea are legend but “matcha kicks it up a notch” due to its processing techniques.
5. Oat milk is made from whole grain oats blended with water. It has more fibre than any milk product and is dairy-free. You may find it as a “milk” option at the trendiest of coffee shops. It is fortified with vitamin D and calcium, all important nutrients for older adults to monitor.
