Updated February 13, 2020 Food and health trends fluctuate and evolve with time, just like anything else. As science and our understanding of the ways our bodies process nutrition continues to expand, we discover new health benefits for popular foods. As an added factor, foods cycle in and out of style as new methods of cooking them and consuming them change. Most people hated cauliflower until it became a healthy alternative to pizza crust and shaved Brussel sprouts are getting popular as they are introduced as a new way to add veggies to your diet. These trendy healthy options have been classified under the broad term of “superfood” referring to the great health benefits of adding them to your diet. At eachnight, we’re huge proponents of living a healthy life beyond just having great sleep habits. We thought it would be interesting to find out how each state is buying into specific superfood trends, and that’s exactly what we did! We compiled a list of trendy superfoods for 2020; using Google Trends, we examined which superfoods are most popular across the United States based on Google Search volume. The results are below. Based on Google Trends data, these are the most popular superfoods in every state. Sweet potatoes are having a major moment according to search volume. Meanwhile, chia seeds and greek yogurt are definitely in vogue, possibly because they’re so great to eat together. Of course, some of the results were for less mainstream food. Bone broth is cool again in Montana, and Tennessee is wild about elderberry syrup. People in Utah are keeping an open mind about hemp hearts, and the folks in Nevada are very into maca powder. There were a few regional trends in the top-searched item by state. Both the Midwest and the South were looking for sweet potatoes. The Northeast is wild about arugula, and the West is adding chia seeds to their diet. Of course, those weren’t the only popular superfoods in the region. In second place for the Midwest and the Northeast was greek yogurt. The South had chia seeds as their second most searched item, and the West saw sweet potatoes as their second top searched item. Sweet potatoes were by far the winner for superfood searches in the US. In a whopping 17 states, they were the top searched item. Chia seeds and greek yogurt were tied with 6 states apiece, followed by arugula in third place with 3 states searching for it the most.
