15 Mar Expo West 2017 (Exclusive Video Interviews Included!)
It is a sunny, warm day in Southern California. You pull up at a huge hotel crowded with people and saunter through the doors. You smell a multitude of foods being cooked, and see 80,000 people walking around, trying samples. Sauerkraut. Marshmallows. Bone broth. Paleo pizza. Cold brew. Bone broth. Granola. Pork rinds. Bone broth. The food options are so diverse, and they all seem to scream out, “Eat me!” You then wonder: Where am I? Is this heaven?
In fact, it is EXPO WEST. You are at the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California!
For starters, what even is Expo West? I’ll tell you! It is a 4 day-long convention filled with all the best natural products and foods (there are 2,786 companies!). Every company has a booth, and gives out samples during the whole convention, which was last weekend. It is also an incredible opportunity for like-minded health enthusiasts to meet each other and try new, delicious foods. That is exactly what I did!
It was so cool to see how huge the Paleo movement has become, and how many new Paleo foods there are out there! Below are some of my favorite Paleo brands that I discovered, plus ones that I already loved.
Don’t forget to watch the video that I shot and my brother edited, of me interviewing all the coolest people at Expo West! Watch it to find out what Melissa Hartwig’s favorite color is, what animal Erica of Wild Friends wants to come back as in her next life, and what the new Cave Shake flavor is. Plus, some amazing Paleo advice from the Godfather and Queen of Paleo. Enjoy!!
Expo West was so, unbelievably fulfilling and fun. I can’t wait for next year. Bye, everyone!
