There are all sorts of milk alternatives available on the market including soy, almond, coconut and rice milk. Oat milk has also emerged as a dairy-free alternative. This type of milk gives those that are vegan or lactose intolerant another type of plant-based milk that they can enjoy. Oat yogurt and oat ice cream have also hit the store shelves recently.
Plant-based diets have been around for quite some time. However, veganism seemed to gain a lot of momentum in 2019. This is in part due to a lot of restaurants offering plant-based options. These options include vegan burgers at Burger King and vegan sausage at Dunkin’ Donuts. Even Disneyland will be offering vegan options this year.
The Ketogenic Diet
Every year it seems like there is some new diet that becomes the latest diet craze. The ketogenic diet has become 2019’s diet craze thanks to numerous celebrities , like Vanessa Hudgens, who have jumped on the keto bandwagon. How the ketogenic diet works is that dieters consume less than 50 grams of carbs each day. This allows them to enter into ketosis. When they are in this state, they will burn fat at a quicker rate.
