6 Must-Try Recipes for 2019 


January 02, 2019 | Recipes

The new year calls for fresh beginnings – and what better to revamp than our diets? Here’s a list of six incredibly delicious and healthy recipes you have to try this year. The recipes are a mix of food trends for 2019 and ingredients we should use more when we cook. Your palate will thank you for it. Let’s get started!

For a Fresh Start
Mixed Berries and Banana Smoothie

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And berries are high in fibre, vitamin C and K and make for a delicious morning smoothie when blended together with banana and yoghurt. The latter is known for having ‘good’ bacteria aka probiotics that help keep our gut healthy — one of the prominent trends we foresee this year. Try it for yourself here.

A Light and Healthy Snack
Kimchi Potato Salad

If smoothies aren’t your cup of juice, perhaps the fermented Korean delicacy is. Kimchi is known for lowering cholesterol levels and boosting metabolism. It also has plenty of ‘good’ bacteria so while you chow down this comforting meal (who doesn’t love a good serving of potato salad?), you’ll also be improving your gut health. It’s a win-win. Try it for yourself here.


Eating Clean Hasn’t Tasted This Good
Grilled Cauliflower with Pesto

Cauliflowers aren’t the first vegetable that comes to mind when thinking about flavourful vegetables, but that will change after pairing them with pesto. What we love about this dish is its simplicity and how flavourful it is. Plus, dairy-free diets help with decreasing inflammation and insulin levels. Here’s to a healthier us in 2019! Try it for yourself here.


A Hearty Main Course
Ginger Roasted Salmon and Broccoli

Salmon is one of the best sources for Omega-3 (good fat that’s essential for better health development), and when paired with broccoli, we get additional vitamins K and C, potassium and fibre that are good for our body too. Aside from the health factors, this dish also makes for a hearty dinner and you absolutely have to try it for yourself here.


Good Dessert, Better You
Avocado Brownies

Who says healthy desserts don’t exist? Exhibit A: the avocado brownie. It’s sweet, rich in flavour and packed with lots of good fats and Omega-3, so it’s basically the dessert you don’t have to feel guilty for having. Good fats will be a prominent ingredient in food this year, so we’ll be eating right (and good, most importantly) this year. Try it for yourself here.

Taste of Sweet Paradise
Coconut Doughnuts

Hear us out: vegan recipes are delicious. And if you can’t take our word for it, you need to take a bite of this sweet treat for yourself. Not only is this dessert easy to make, vegan diets are also known for being richer in certain vitamins when balanced properly and helps you lose excess weight – this might not work if you eat too many doughnuts though. So, if you’re looking to go vegan, start with this!  Try it for yourself here.


We hope you have a fresh 2019 with these delicious recipes! You can buy all the aforementioned ingredients at any Village Grocer outlet.


Keep it fresh,

Your friendly neighbourhood grocer.
