Anyone who pays attention to health food trends knows that they are ever changing. Some trends fall off the radar forever (think Slim Fast), some classics never seem to fade (wheatgrass is here to stay), and others fall in and out of favor with the passing years. The pendulum swing of popularity sometimes makes these health trends feel completely arbitrary. With that same attitude, we decided to rank the most popular health food trends of the past decade.
We know that quinoa has tons of protein. And we are aware of the fact that an ounce of wheatgrass equals the nutritional content of 2.5 pounds of vegetables. But none of that knowledge goes into our completely subjective ranking of the most talked about health food trends. No, instead we judged these foods purely on like-ability, because why not?
Behold, the best health food trends -- ranked from most enjoyable to most annoying.
