If you're feeling a bit bored with your diet, it's time to get excited. We've been geeking out over Kroger's picks for 2019 food trends and thinking about how we can incorporate new recipes to break up with food boredom.
Here are three of our favorite food trends along with recipes from around the web to get you started.
The importance of a healthy gut for overall wellness has been all over the headlines. One way to feed your good gut bacteria is with probiotic-rich fermented foods.
Strawberry Yogurt Parfait — This parfait made with Greek Yogurt and your granola or cereal of choice is a great make-ahead option for busy mornings.
Homemade Sauerkraut — You an always pick up sauerkraut at the grocery store (and find the best deal on Flipp), but have you ever thought about making your own? All you really need is cabbage, salt and some jars. How's that for simple and cheap?
Ginger-Kombucha Cocktail or Raspberry Kombucha Mojito Mocktail — Kombucha is a delicious, healthy alternative to soda. Made from fermented tea, you give the fizz without all of the sugar with the bonus of probiotics and plenty of flavors to choose from. Sip a bottle on its own, or mix up a cocktail or mocktail next time you're hosting friends.
Move over, peanut butter! Seed butters are a safer option for peanut-free schools and public spaces, not to mention to mention they add new flavors to your favorite foods. Search Flipp and find them in the peanut butter aisle or the health food section of your grocery store for different options, or make some of your own.
Homemade Sunflower Seed Butter — Sunflower butter is a common choice for a peanut butter replacement. A cost-effective way to try it out is to hit the bulk aisle and make your own in a food processor.

Sunflower Butter Banana Bread — If reducing or eliminating gluten is important to you, we've got your banana bread alternative! It's an ideal option if you've got a couple bananas going off on your counter.
With plant-based and flexitarian diets becoming mainstream, so has the availability of exciting plant-based protein bars, snacks and more.
