Here’s some definitive proof that takeout orders are getting way healthier

The thought of takeout food doesn’t quite conjure images of
the healthiest meals. Rather, the term has long been associated
with the stuff of fried, greasy, highly processed plates, like
General Tso’s chicken or pizza (with a side of cheesy bread,
natch). But it turns out that a growing number of people are
actually likely to order options full of health benefits, like a
bean burrito or a cauliflower rice bowl.

Grubhub just released new data
 pointing to top 2018 food
trends, and the biggie was none other than plant-based
foods
. “According to Grubhub’s ordering data, bean burritos
took the top spot as the food surging the most in popularity in
2018, rising 276 percent as compared to 2017,” the release
reads.

Another healthy food trend rising in takeout popularity is poke,
with orders up over 200 percent. And it bears mentioning that red
meat doesn’t appear at all in the top 10 rising food trends.

“Bean burritos took the top spot as the food surging the most
in popularity in 2018, rising 276 percent as compared to 2017.”

And get this: The top trending breakfast order is a peanut
butter acai bowl—winning over breakfast sandwiches. So clearly,
people aren’t using a lack of food in the fridge as an excuse to
load up on bad-for-you meals—or at least doing so isn’t a
trending habit.

Grubhub, which
serves 1,700 cities nationwide
, compiled these stats by
analyzing millions of orders placed by its more than 16 million
users. It also factored in results from a survey by a third party
that looked at the ordering habits of 1,927 takeout customers.

Basically take this as heartwarming (and heart-healthy) evidence
that better-for-you takeout options and choices are clearly on the
rise.
