Green Festival - DC 2014

The Green Festival has officially turned into a vegan food festival. Once riddled with people touting composting toilets and compost bins filled with worms for your home, it is now filled with people sampling delicious vegan food.  You will still find energy-efficient alternatives here and lots and lots of beauty products, but food is where it is at.

My favorite discovery was a new raw, cold-pressed, juice place called CPJ.  They are a local company that is not using high pressure processing so they say their juice is even more nutritious than those using that method.  I tried the organic carrot pineapple, which was awesome and the organic green made with cucumber, celery, lemon, romaine, and green apple, which was also awesome. Look for these juices in a store near you soon.

Then, I had lunch at Khepra's Raw Food and Juice Bar.  I had a sample with Mushroom Olive Pizza, Spinach Sea Salad, Papaya Kale, Buffalo Cauliflower, and Curry Wild Rice. It was all very good.

There were beautiful handmade soaps from The Fanciful Fox.

Hope Foods was displaying all of their scrumptious hummuses, dips, and spreads.

 Soom had their chocolate sesame butter made with tahini.

The Badass Power Cookie made with spirulina was really good.

One company, Sprout Bottle, was recycling old beer bottle and selling herb gardens with them.

And last but not least, Red Velvet Cupcakery had cupcakes. Yum.

 This was a great festival. I'm already looking forward to next year's!


  1. It seems as if it was a lot smaller than in prior years--or is that just me?

  2. It did seem smaller, but more focused. I liked it.
