the newest in natural food: expo west

Last weekend was the annual Natural Products Expo West show in Anaheim. This is my 5th year attending and I’ve always loved going! Walking the show is so much more laid back compared to the first three years when I was planning the show – such a different experience.

Here are some of my favorites new food/beverage finds from the weekend:


Hooray Pureed Vegetables: perfect for adding into mac & cheese, sauces, baked goods, etc. Available online currently and coming to stores soon!

Go Live Probiotic Water: comes in bottles or packets that you mix with water.

Earth Balance Coconut Peanut Butter. Need I say more? Absolutely delicious.

Rush Bowls: blended fruit + granola topping (sold frozen). Really yummy and a fun summer breakfast.

Naked Pizza:not your ordinary pizza crust – this one is made with all sorts of whole grains and probiotics!

Milk Makers: cookies to boost milk supply! (for Moms) :)

Avitae Caffeinated Water: yup.

Bar Gelato: Naia’s hand-crafted, artisan gelato in a bar form. Salted Caramel is ridiculous. (And the bar has less than 200 calories)!

Wildbrine: naturally fermented sauerkrauts and kimchi. The sauerkraut was amazing, and while I’m not normally a fan of kimchi, I liked this!

Have you found any interesting new products lately?

    You’re lucky you live near that – it sounds like an amazing festival! I heard Daiya debuted their new vegan cheese slices, and I’m dying to try their havarti ones. Hurry up and work your way to the grocery stores, Daiya!!!

      Hmmm, I didn’t see those, when I went by their booth, they were only serving shredded cheese on pizza. Havarti vegan cheese though – wow!
