The 2006 Natural Food Expo West was a scrumptious smorgasbord of everything organic! From established, mainstream corporations to budding businesses, you name it and it was there.
As a fitness fanatic and healthy-eating enthusiast, I was very excited to enter this organic cornucopia. Amongst my friends, I am the oddity, constantly scanning the nutrition labels for grams of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, sugars, and sodium, and looking for key words like 'organic,' 'natural,' and 'no hydrogenated oils.' At the Natural Food Expo West, however, I was immersed in the majority! With every turn, I was encountered with enticing new products and happily helped myself to a free sample. I was overjoyed to see familiar favorites like Brown Cow Dairy Products and Rudi's Organic Bakery, and to learn about the up-and-coming hottest new products in the natural food industry.
The variety of products offered was astounding! There was truly something for everyone. Scoops of soy, sugar-free ice cream were passed around. Even Haagen-Dazs was present, scooping generous portions of their celebrated, silky smooth ice cream. Byson sausage and egg whites were prepared on hot plates while vitamins claiming to eradicate the first signs of a cold were handed out. Even Lawrence's two dogs scored a plethora of treats from organic dog food companies!
Like children leaving a carnival, we departed from the Natural Food Expo West wonderfully exhausted and delightfully satiated! Instead of cotton candy in our hands, we held pomegranate juice popsicles. Rather than stuffed animals in our arms, we cuddled loaves of organic, wheat-free bread. The Natural Food Expo was truly a delicious delight. A delectable Disneyland for healthy-eating enthusiasts everywhere!
