Which is really cool if you think about. All of these companies, no matter their size now, started with someone wanting to create a better-for-you and/or a better-for-the-world product. And while you still have to be vigilant (there is a lot of clever marketing going on), there are some really cool things happening in the natural products world.
So, without further ado, here is a list of some stand out products that I came across, in alphabetical order:
So I *may* not have technically made it to their booth. But I have had pretty much all of their flavors, and I did try other kombuchas at the event, and Brew Dr. just beats all of them. They don’t do a second ferment, they just get their flavors from the amazing teas they use. I am #obsessed. In an ever crowded kombucha market, Brew Dr. is the one to beat in my opinion. I can’t wait until they are carried in more stores. Also, Brew Dr., if you are reading this and feel like you want to send me a lifetime supply of Mint Lemonade, I’m into it.
Cauliflower is the new kale. Or turmeric. Or CBD oil. Or whatever craze we’re on these days (I can’t keep up). There was cauliflower everywhere at Expo West but Califlour is a real deal natural product. Their crusts contain only 4 ingredients: cauliflower, eggs, cheese, and spices. While most of their products are not vegan, they do have a plant-based option. My favs were the Sweet Red Pepper and The Original Italian. This is another product that needs to be in more stores STAT. So delicious and made with simple ingredients.
