Expo East is the best conference to find the latest and greatest in natural and whole foods products
Expo East is the conference I look forward to most, year after year. The newest and best healthy products are on display on four different floors of the Baltimore Convention Center. This year was the first year I attended the New Hope Influencer Summit the day before Expo East started. I was thrilled to be invited as a part of this inaugural blogger get together. I enjoyed meeting the other healthy bloggers who were a part of my roundtable. This powerful group spent the day learning, networking, and sharing our desire for healthy families. You can read about the other healthy bloggers who attended here. I hope that next year the Influencer Summit will return!
One of the best things about Expo East is that my mini blogger can attend with me. This year I spent the first day at the Expo by myself. Many of the booths stopped and asked me where my mini blogger was. After the tenth person inquired, I decided that my partner needed to join me the rest of the days of the conference. My mini blogger makes connections, hands out business cards, and makes an excellent impression every year.
Expo East is so much fun because not only do we find new brands, we also meet up with favorite brands that are an integral part of our family. Since this is our fourth year attending Expo East, it almost feels like a family reunion. Schmidt’s Deodorant is a brand our family relies on every day. With four stinky teen boys, we need a strong deodorant. The two new scents above, are very popular with my boys. Schmidt’s has a brand new product line, bar soap and it is SO good!
Road Crew Clusters were not only delicious, they are healthy, gluten-free, and NonGMO. There are 4 flavors of sweet treats and it was impossible to choose our favorite. This snack would appeal to both kids and adults!
Wonderwell juice boxes are a staple in our house. We try to limit the sugar our kids eat and juice boxes are typically very high in sugar. The Wonderwell waters are organic, flavored with natural extracts and essential oils and have zero sugar. Watermelon is the flavor that the mini blogger likes best.
The mini blogger’s favorite booth each year is always Julie’s Organic and Alden’s Organic Ice Creams and sorbets. If you have never tried these delightful and delicious frozen treats, you must. Each pint is packed with real ingredients, ones you would recognize. Each treat has amazing flavor and is NonGMO and purely delightful!
The Minina Tortilla chips are made in the first authentic tortilla bakery in New England. These chips are crafted from 100% US NonGMO white corn, lime and water. These super delicious chips have no preservatives or artificial ingredients. The mini blogger has not stopped thinking about the cinnamon churros chips since she tasted them!
Jenny Lee Swirl Bread is the most flavorful bread I have ever tried. It comes in 9 amazing flavors. The tomato basil bread made into a grilled cheese is something I have dreamed about over the past month. If you love bread, you must try this bread by 5 Generation Bakers.
Rao’s Homemade Marinara Sauce is something special. We were invited to an intimate gathering to get to know the story behind Rao’s sauce. This authentic Italian sauce is nutritious and SO delicious. Italian tomatoes and all natural ingredients combine together to create an incredibly delicious sauce.
We fell in love with Live Soda at Expo East. This delicious soda has less sugar and is organic, delicious, and NonGMO. The lemon lime and blueberry flavors were our favorites.
Inlight Beauty is a 100% organic luxury skincare line. Their products are created with the finest ingredients to help you look radiant. Each product is packed with nutrients and antioxidants so your skin stays nourished and hydrated.
Biena chocolate covered chickpeas are one of my favorite snacks. You might think, why would you want to cover a chickpea in chocolate? The answer is, because it is SO delicious and also nutritious. Chickpeas are full of protein, and with a bit of chocolate they are a truly healthy snack that kids will love.
Kite Hill creates wonderful non-dairy products from almond milk. There are yogurts, drinks, artisanal cheeses, and even pasta! The yogurt is fabulous and excellent for a plant based diet.
Rainbow Light, one of my favorite brands of vitamins for the past 15 years, has recently come out with a new line, Vibrance. These multivitamins are specifically developed and formulated to benefit men, women, or teens. The vitamins are food based, organic, and easy to digest. Each Vibrance formulation covers a different issue that people might face, Immune Support, Balance and Energy, Stress Support, Healthy Skin, and Energy and Vitality.
Smashmallows were the mini bloggers favorite treat last year. This year she fell in love with the Smashcrispy. This healthier form of a Rice Krispy treat is individually packaged and come in three flavors. The mini blogger likes the mint chocolate chip flavor the best.
Skratch labs makes excellent hydration drink mixes. They also make chews, bars and gears. These chocolate chip and almond bars are perfect for me when I do not have time to eat a meal. I keep them in my purse and they give me enough energy to get through the day.
Q cups are my favorite item to pack on a business trip. These cups are filled with plain or flavored quinoa. Add water and your quinoa is ready in 5 minutes. This is a perfect breakfast for me when I am traveling!
Truth Bars are a delicious way to take your prebiotics and probiotics. These bars taste great and a healthier way to snack on the go. These bars are low in sugar, high in fiber, and healthy fats to help you feel your best.
