Natural Products Expo West

I went to the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA today. It is the world’s largest show featuring natural and/or organic products. The expo is largely dominated by organic and healthy foods, but there are also beauty products, cleaning products and more! IMG 1447 800x533 thumb Natural Products Expo West

It’s held at the Anaheim Convention center and is MASSIVE. There are hundreds and hundreds of booths with food samples and information. It’s like my foodie Heaven and I love it.

Before I even got into the convention center there were a few sample trucks outside! Hello Chobani!!!image thumb28 Natural Products Expo West

But, it is also way too much to blog about all of it. So, I took a lot of pictures and will share with you my favorite products from the Natural Products expo this year…

My favorite beverage is the Zevia soda drinks. They are soda sweetened with stevia and I love them. image thumb29 Natural Products Expo West

Added bonus: They had a Happy Hour in the afternoon. IMG 1371 800x533 thumb Natural Products Expo West

After a quick beverage I walked up and down the aisles samples new products and talking to people. It is the best day ever!IMG 1389 800x533 thumb Natural Products Expo WestIMG 1379 800x533 thumb Natural Products Expo WestIMG 1365 800x533 thumb Natural Products Expo West

Favorite stranger moment of the day – I talked some guy into trying a sardine with me and we said ‘Cheers!’ and toasted them. I was pleasantly surprised that they were good!IMG 1377 800x533 thumb Natural Products Expo West

I even got a sticker that said I tried my first sardine!

And I was lucky enough to run into the infamous Leah from Mamavation. In addition to being amazing, she has 3 adorable red headed babies. I’m hoping she just gives me one so I don’t have to one of my own… image thumb33 Natural Products Expo West

Then, the sunset on my beautiful day… IMG 1448 800x533 thumb Natural Products Expo West

    Wowwww! What an amazing day! I’ve never had sardines either but I might consider trying them…for a sticker. :) That cold brew coffee looks delicious too!

    Do you by chance remember who makes the GF Daiya pizza? Finding that kind of ‘za is tougher than one would think.

    SO fun! I dream to go to that one day! Pumpkin pie larabars?! YAY! Wonder when those are coming out!?

    I saw that nunaturals has a new cherry liquid stevia too!

    You look beautiful and glad you had fun!

    How do you find all of these fabulous expos to go to?! I think I would need a closet dedicated to just food samples if I attended all the shows you have!

    Had a work related day long course today but managed to get in a group run before that. Now I’m fighting zzz monsters after the early wake up call…gonna give in.

    I want to eat most of your pictures!! Especially Pumpkin Pie Larabars!!

    I have only tried a few stevia products, which have had a strange aftertaste. Should I keep trying? Or is this just something you accept with stevia products?

    And… How does Chobani define “natural”?

    Soooooo jealous. Looks amazing! I love sardines. This weekend is pretty chilled. Had a nice walk to town and an iced latte with The Boy, it’s a nice sunny day here. I also fitted in a 6 mile walk. Dinner at a friend’s tonight (I’m taking pink champagne and dark-chocolate dipped peppermint patties) then chores and a visit to the parents-in-law tomorrow. Phew!

    The Anaheim Convention Center… I’m so jealous. I used to go to a conference there every year, and I miss SoCal so much!

    These kind of expos and shows are very necessary for promoting Eco friendly Products. These kinds of expos are rare events but are important as popularity of Organic Products are very healthy.
