She says protein alternatives are going to be big in 2018, “Meat alternatives that are based on plants. We are seeing burgers and other things that should be almost indistinct in terms of differences between the real meat and the plant based burger I think that’s an exciting area.”


If improving your physical fitness is you resolution, Buch says many Valley fitness centers are jumping on the new trend of flexibility, “I just think the Valley does have a lot of resources to stay active and one thing I think is cool is giving people the flexibility to just drop in I think a lot of people have this perception of gyms that you have to sign up for the whole year.
