This weekend was the Organic Expo and Green Show International. I went to the Good Food & Wine show a few weeks ago, and to be honest, I was a bit disappointed. Partly because it's become much more commercial than about produce. There were hardly any samples to try, and I found that I just wasn't interested in a lot of the products. I hadn't realised how much my mindset had changed since switching to more organic and less processed foods.
So I was keen to go to the Organic Expo to see if it would satisfy my craving for novelty. Often organic and health foods are expensive, so it's good to be able to try them first. I think we've all been stung after buying something in a health food stall and coming home to find out that the snack bar tastes like candles, or the green drink really does taste like chopped up grass - ew!
On the whole, the day was a lot of fun. There were plenty of samples to try, some good value, and I came away with a couple of new and exciting ideas for kitchen adventures.
