I just spent the last 3 days at Expo. West and not only am I super excited for the coming year I am also dead tired. Expo. is so big and covers so much space I did not get to see all of it. I had to allow myself permission to be okay with this which was not easy, but needed. Today I did a nice yoga stretch and have been in my most comfortable clothes watching “Say Yes to the Dress” in preparation for my daughters upcoming wedding. LOL.
Any who…here are the NEW products & companies I wanted to share from Expo. West 2019. I have so many this will be a 2 part series! BAM is all I can say.
Many are small businesses and I hope you will consider supporting all of them. I make no money selling product I simply believe in each of these products and the people behind them. Enjoy.
EXPO WEST 2019 NEW PRODUCT ROUND-UP - Part ONE
Nutpods - Did you know Nutpods has paid for Gidget for years? Yup their sponsorship is for Gidget’s food. I get emotional every month when I get the wire from them. Some of the kindest people I know! Our love affair began and is re-kindled every morning when I make my coffee. I am a Nutpods gal! Dairy-FREE never tasted so good and now they up’d the game once again with Caramel! I almost passed out on the Expo West show floor when I saw this. Next I tasted it smiled so much my eyes shut. I love you Nutpods and appreciate all you do for me and Gidget. Grab yours here.
Pili Hunters - I have been so inspired by the spirit of PIli Nuts, which comes directly from the founder, Jason. His energy, kindness and zest for life are the foundation of Pili Nuts. The creamy nuts are one thing now they have Expedition Nut Butters that are simply amazing! I recommend grabbing a variety pack and doing your own taste test. These are perfect for keto folks! Post work out snacks, kids lunches, treats and simply fuel for your mind, body and soul. Tap your hunter gatherer and click here.
Siete Foods - When Siete joined the tour I almost cried. I knew the Siete families line of products would help me to change the narrative in households so easily. Their complete line of Paleo perfect products elevate the family meal plan from the word go. This year at Expo West they announced a hard taco shell. I know it is almost too much to wait for it to hit the shelves. If you are like me and want to be the first to know head here.
Green Girl Bakeshop - I almost cried when I met Lisa and her team at Green Girl. From the product to the packaging they had me hooked and who doesn’t want a healthy, delicious ice cream sandwich? Right now you can only find them in the California area, but that is about to change folks so hang on. Green Girl I am a fan and cannot wait for you to be found all over America. Learn more here.
CoYo Organic - My good friend in Bend, Oregon introduced me to the line CoYo and I have forever been hunting it down all over America. When touring I have been known to drive 30 miles to have this delicious dairy free yogurt. I love all the flavors with vanilla bean being my favorite. If you have not tried CoYo you are missing out. I had the pleasure of meeting the co-founder, Henry, at Expo. West and his story about starting this company so amazing I want to invite him to do a Facebook Live so stay tuned. Find your CoYo here.
Kitch Fix - This company is not new to me I just re-fell in love with Kitch Fix. They recently had Dr. Terry Wahls out for an event and you now this Wahls Warrior loves to hear that! Not going to lie I love a good bowl of granola to start the day or a mid-day post workout fuel fix. The line from Kitch Fix delicious! My real love affair has always been with the Paleo waffles they have. OMG. Do I need to say anymore? Waffles. Granola. Bars. Find out more here.
Hu Kitchen- OMG someone save me from myself. I swear every time I buy Hu Kitchen’s cashew butter bar I am going to share or eat 1/2 at a time. I NEVER do. Not even one time. I am a true addict. This stuff kills me. I also find myself yelling at their Instagram account. The posts send me over the ‘I need that now edge.’ To make matters more exciting I can find them almost anywhere for purchase. If you have not tried HU you have been warned. Learn more here.
Karine & Jeff - I first found the Karine & Jeff product line touring in 2018. It was a dream come true for this van living fool. Real whole food based soups & puree’s that are homemade are what Karine & Jeff are all about. This french company feels like fine cuisine from the word go. The packaging is amazing in the beautiful glass bottles which I adore. I simply LOVE this product line and almost died when I found it at Expo. West. To learn where to find them click here.
Chill Pop - Frozen fruit pops are what Chill Pop Shop is all about. Met CEO, Elisabeth, at Expo. West and tasted all the delicious flavors they offered. With flavors like avocado mint and watermelon lime you can bet the are for grown-ups and kids alike. They are creamy, dreamy yum on a stick. Learn more here.
Lilly’s Sweets - I love Lilly’s baking chips and have recently found the keto version from Lilly’s Sweets. I am not going to lie I eat them right out of the bag. So good for this chocolate loving woman. Lilly’s bars, chips and NEW chocolate covered almonds RULE. I love this line and appreciate how they make my conscious life easy. To grab your Lilly’s click here.
Base Culture - This companies breads I was first introduced to many years ago. I met the founder of Base Culture at a trade show and have watched this line continue to grow. Today they have a Keto bread that is amazing. I have been toasting it up every morning since I got my 1st loaf! So good. Base Culture also makes banana, pumpkin and sandwich Paleo breads plus a bunch more. Base Culture has been delivering quality BAM for years and the keto bread just another example. You can grab them on Amazon here.
Teton Waters Ranch - I LOVE this company and how I can find them almost everywhere all over America. Teton Waters Ranch was at Expo. West last week and I had the pleasure of meeting with the CEO, Mike Murray. What a nice guy! If I loved them before I am in love now. Literally and not only because of the Teton Waters Ranch sausages - they have grass-fed burgers! They are ridiculous! My last meal on earth would be a burger so I know burgers. I literally died. They won some big ass award for it too. Check it all things Teton Waters Ranch here.
VioLife - I stumbled upon VioLife touring and have been a huge fan ever since. I actually think I was on vacation with my cousin in Key West when I found VioLife. I love this non-dairy cheese line so much especially the cheddar cheese. Never did I think a grilled cheese would be in my life, but it is with this plant-based line of cheese. Now don’t be getting your panties in a bunch with potato starch and start saying nasty things to me. I won’t have it. I love this line. I eat this line and I am happy to enjoy a grilled cheese using Base Culture bread and Mikey’s Muffins. To learn more about VioLife click here.
Rhythm Superfoods - I met this company when I stumbled upon their beet chips and Rhythm became something I looked for when shopping. I love beets and get sick of eating them the same way. Having
the chips was a new BAM in my life. Then Rhythm added the carrots and sticks which my dog Gidget loves so I keep a bag in the van for her. Now they have fruit and I was lucky enough to taste it at Expo. West. I love this line and appreciate how they bring the super to snacking through foods. Amazon sells Rhythm Superfoods making it the easiest ever. Here is a link to get started.
Birch Benders - Pancakes, pancakes, pancakes, pancakes. Did I mention pancakes? Birch Benders brings the Paleo to pancakes and boy do they do a great job of it! Not going to lie in the fall I bought the pumpkin paleo pancake mix in Denver and although tempted everyday to open in before Thanksgiving I waited to bring it home to my daughter for Thanksgiving morning and it was a highlight and now a tradition. So much love for Birch Benders and how easy they make Paleo. Now they are making keto just as simple with their line of Keto mixes and syrups. Did I mention syrups? Keto? Chocolate Chip? Have mercy is all I can say. To learn more click here friends.
Pop & Bottle - Almond milk latte’s to go = yes please and thank you Pop & Bottle! I love everything about this company! The products are delish, the energy around the booth was amazing and the packaging I find very appealing. I am a sucker for a delicious healthy nut milk. I was first turned onto nut milks by a friend in Beverly Hills who used to make and sell them to me when my hands did not work. Thankful for Pop & Bottle for making almond milk latt'e’s easy on the daily. To grab some on Amazon click here.
Gold Thread Herbs - Wow was I surprised to find these magic elixir’s from Gold Thread Herbs. So darn delicious and a healthy BAM in a jar.
