2013 Natural Products Expo West - Day 1

As a veteran of this show, I was poised and ready to go at 9:30 a.m. yesterday. With my plan in hand along with my map, I sought out those companies I knew along with new ones I didn't. The result was a spectacularly successful day. For those of you who don't know, Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California is the biggest trade show for the natural products industry in the world. Tens of thousands of companies come to showcase new and existing products and make connections that may catapult their products into more markets. After tasting products for nearly 8 hours straight, I headed to the beer & wine expo, then after tasting wines for 2 hours straight, I headed back to the hotel last night. I now have a food baby and a headache and have another full day ahead of me.

But, I was able to find tons of great products yesterday and as hard as it is for me to do this, I have chosen my top 6 favorites, listed in no order. More on these items to come in the near future.

#1 Pachamama Raw kale chips

#2 Living Raw kickin' cayenne truffles

#3 Jem Specialty Nut Butter cinnamon red maca almond butter

#4 Hope Hummus Thai coconut curry hummus

#5 RawFoodz buttery style spread and dressings

#6 Carla Lee's nut burgers

Okay, that's it for now. I'm headed back to the show for day two, that is, assuming I survive another day. Wish me luck!
