Natural Products Expo West Update & Interviews

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 7.30.52 PM

Last week was the Natural Products Expo West.  It was a huge event one of the largest conferences I’ve ever been to. I was only able to go for one day and I certainly couldn’t see it all. But I did manage to grab some amazing interviews with some great innovative companies in the gluten free world like Udi’s, Bob’s Red Mill, Vans and Food Should Taste Good. I have about 8 to 10 interviews to edit so I will be unveiling them over the next 2-3 weeks.

Here are some of the great items that I was given.  They should be on your store’s shelves in the coming months, if they aren’t there already….except the scarf, that’s mine. 😉

Van’s Foods Interview

I’ve been a big fan of Van’s Foods products for years, so I was so excited to meet and interview with Sarah Nicholson of Van’s Foods at last month’s Natural Products Expo West. I’ll never forget the time that a guy at a whole foods store made fun of me for buying the dairy free and gluten-free waffles. I like that many of the products have whole grains and are nutritious as well as a great treat. I’m certainly going to be getting some of the snack bars to keep in my purse. Hope you like this interview. Please let me know what you think in the comments below. If you have any suggestions or ideas for future blogs or interviews I’d love to hear them.

Bob’s Red Mill Interview

Here is my second interview from the Natural Products Expo West, with Cassidy Stockton, Social Media Manager for Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods.  She was so nice to chat with…especially after a long day at the conference.  She talks about some great new gluten free products Bob’s Red Mill has in stores, as well as how the company got started in the gluten free world.

Udi’s Gluten Free Foods Interview

I’m so excited to finally start sharing my interviews from the natural products Expo West. The editor had a technical glitch with the drive that all of the interviews were saved on and we had to send it away to get repaired which took about a week and a half to fix. UGH!  We are finally back in action and I’m going to start rolling these interviews out to you one by one.  I have a lot of great interviews and information to share.

Here is the first one, with Denise Sirovatka of Udi’s Gluten Free Foods.  Denise is the Vice President and General Manager for Udi’s. She was great to chat with and told me a lot of fun stuff, including a brief history of Udi’s and all the great items that you can find in your store now or very soon. I hope you like this interview and I will have more coming your way.

Walkers Shortbread Interview

I don’t know about you, but for me Walkers Shortbread is synonymous with shortbread cookies. My mom would occasionally have them in the pantry and what a treat.  I was very sad that I couldn’t eat them anymore when I became gluten-free. Well not anymore….in my latest interview from the Natural Products Expo West, I interview Lisa Sherman of Walkers Shortbread and she introduces me to their new gluten-free shortbread cookies, which come in three different flavors. I’m a classic girl so I love the Classic Shortbread cookie but the Ginger Lemon and Chocolate Chip Shortbread are also amazing. If you can’t find them in your local store, you can order them online here’s the link:
