Earlier, we wrote a blog about the detox trend.
In this society, our health is a hot item. You have noticed that for sure.
There is an abundance of food and diabetes II looms.
Therefore, we are all looking for a healthy combination: delicious food from all the goodies that money can buy, but also we have to pay attention to our health.
The media has so much these days about nutrition and health, that you probably will feel overwhelmed.
Trend Bubbles made for you a selection of books that are doing well right now and that respond to the current health trend.
For your convenience we put a link to the biggest online bookstore provider in The Neterlands, Bol.com or a link to Amazon. Of course you can also find on those websites more information about the books.
Powerfood or superfood, have you heard those words?
They are very hot topics in nutritionland nowadays.
Powerfood has a broader meaning than superfood.
Powerfood includes all foods that are rich in good nutrients such as broccoli and spinach.
Superfood is a new category of berries and seeds such as chia seeds, goji berries, maca powder and wheatgrass.
Maybe you've even heard the word Soylent already?
Soylent replaces food. It's a drink whith all the nutrients you would need to ingest and you no longer need to eat any other food.
Three drinks per day would be enough. It is intended to provide humans with food without paying attention to their preparation time.
What do you think of this?
Nowadays more and more students use Soylent because of the price. A “meal” Soylent is cheaper than self catering.

4. Edible Selby by Photographer Todd Selby
At Trendbubbles we love photos and books with photos. We already loved his book The Selby In Plac,e where the photographer reveals his portraits of dynamic and creative people—authors, musicians, artists, and designers—in their home environments.
With The Edible Selbe he is back and this time focusing his lens on the kitchens, gardens, homes, and restaurants of more than 40 of the most creative and dynamic figures working in the culinary world today. Selby captures the food we love to eat and the people who passionately grow, cook, pour, and serve these incredible edibles every day.
So this isn't a book about food, but a book about people, and if you love photography like we do, you certainly will enjoy this book.
We hope you like our selection and if you can read in Dutch, than switch over to the Dutch version of this page with other very good books in Dutch.
