Expo West is this weekend. It will be my first time attending this convention. There are over 2,000 vendors scheduled to be at Expo West. That’s a lot of booths to cover in just 2 days (unless I’m “sick” and can’t go to work on Friday – thinking about it).
Here are just a few of the vendors I’m looking forward to seeing:
This company makes the best tea. I am currently obsessing over the tulsi honey chamomile tea, but tulsi cinnamon rose is my all-time favorite one of theirs. They are not exclusively a tea company. They also sell herbs, supplements, and teecino (herbal coffee). I hope there are samples! You can check this company out here.
My taste buds do a little happy dance every time I eat Theo Chocolate. One of the items on my bucket list is to take a tour of the Theo Chocolate factory in Seattle. It’s the first organic, fair trade chocolate factory in the world. Plus, all their products are ethical, sustainable, soy-free, and non-GMO. And the price is right. Theo is pretty much the only brand of chocolate I consume these days. I really like the 85% pure dark chocolate, but sometimes I indulge and purchase other flavors. Some of my favorites are dark chocolate chili, dark chocolate salted almond, and ECI vanilla nib.
Seasnax really are strangely addictive. This is the only brand of seaweed snack that I eat and recommend to parents with picky kids. What I like best about them is that they use olive oil instead of industrial oils like canola. I think they might also be the only affordable brand of seaweed snacks that are certified non-GMO. The classic flavor is always a safe choice if you’re feeding a picky child. But my favorite flavor is spicy chipotle. Now I’m craving roasted seaweed. Time to place another order!
Love Grown Foods
This is another brand I recommend to busy moms who are looking to keep their kids healthy and gluten free while always on the go. Their oatmeal is super delicious and convenient for busy mornings where there’s not much time for breakfast. The real reason I’m super excited to see Love Grown Foods at Expo West is because they’re launching a top secret new product. Plus, they’re super passionate about what they do. In fact, we share the same passion of keeping kids healthy.
Sunwarrior is my protein of choice. I specifically like blending the vanilla warrior blend into my morning smoothies. It’s a vegan protein that everyone can enjoy. The best thing about it is that it contains all essential amino acids (including BCAAs to help you recover from tough workouts), and it’s soy free, gluten free, and non-GMO. I’ve only tried their protein powders, but I’m looking forward to sampling their vitamins and super greens as well.
Honorable mentions go to:
Hail Merry Snacks (best macaroons and tarts ever!!)
Suja Juice (no other pre-made juice comes close to being this good!!)
Mamma Chia (I recommend their chia squeezes to kids/families I work with)
Primal Pit Paste (I’ll need this after walking around all day. Plus, who doesn’t want organic armpits?)
