I just returned from Natural Products Expo West, the largest natural food show in the US. What a fun time! I wish I could have taken all of you with me to see what is going to be available in stores this year. It was the first time that I was at a food show where there were more good GF products than bad ones.
What is coming your way? Lots of GF pizza, a gazillion protein bars, healthier items (loaded with chia, flax and hemp), sprouted grains and many, many, many cookies.
There were so many items to tell you about but here are just a few of my favorites that I found.
Kinnikinnick Blueberry Bagels – tastes just like the real deal
World Peas – dried peas with a kick – a really nice snack
Apple Honee – tastes like honey but is made from apples
Lo Salt Salt – low sodium salt that tastes like the real thing
Red Lentil and Black Bean Pasta – delicious pasta made from black beans or red lentils
All Natural Gumballs – no artificial colors or flavors and it tastes great
Epic Bars – protein bars that taste like jerky
Nutiva Coconut Manna - coconut oil with the water removed – perfect for smoothies!
Evol Burritos – GF burritos and the wrapper is made from ancient grains and holds up well when heated
