9 Years

9 Years

 

9 years. 9 years!!!! It’s been 9 years since I’ve changed to an organic lifestyle. 9 amazing years! 9 years ago, I made a huge decision to clean up my diet and fix my horrible digestive issues. Ever since then, my life has changed completely. The only reason I ever look back is to see how far I’ve come.

9 years is a long time to be committed to something. I fell in love 9 years ago. No, not with a man. I fell in love with the organic lifestyle and everything that comes with it. I wasn’t Sara until 9 years ago. The biggest commitment I have ever made in my life is to the organic lifestyle. If you were to ask me in high school what I was going to be doing in the next 10 years, being apart of the organic community and having my own blog was not one them.

So what has happened in 9 years?

I didn’t find the organic life, the organic life found me

I Didn’t Find the Organic Life, the Organic Life Found Me

 

I didn’t find the organic life, the organic life found me. This is a quote that I coined a few years ago when I took a look at my story to where I am now. I always say that I didn’t find the organic life, the organic life found me because it is true. This has been a 9 year journey that I have been on now with living an organic lifestyle. This lifestyle has literally saved my life as I have mentioned in previous blogs. I am who I am today because of the hardships that I went through about 9 years ago. I have never truly opened up to many people about why I live an organic lifestyle. In 2018, I am committed to being more open. So, here is my story.

Spread The Love

Spread The Love

Spread the love! A phrase we must all live by everyday. But in this case, it is the name of a new organic peanut butter and natural almond butter company. Spread The Love was started in the kitchen of the owners as a favor to give out to their guests at their wedding. Little did they know that their simple nut butter party favors would turn into a business.

Expo West 2017

Expo West 2017

Expo West 2017 has been the best Expo I have ever attended. This was my 4th year attending and it was amazing. There were about 85,000 attendees this year. Saying the show was huge is an understatement. This year there were booths in the Hilton, the Marriott, 3 floors of the Anaheim Convention Center, and the Anaheim Arena. I normally can do the show in 2 days but this year I attended all 3 days. There were so many new organic and natural products that I can’t wait to share with all of you. It is an exciting time for the natural and organic industry. Just by the growing amount of booths and attendees, the organic and natural industry is growing tremendously!

Just a reminder for those of you who are unfamiliar, the Natural Products Expo is where companies from all sectors of the organic/natural industry demo their products for distributors, food brokers, retailers, consultants, health professionals, press members, and bloggers. It is THE show to attend if you have a natural and organic product that you want to demo or if you are on the other side and are looking for products or suppliers.

Trends This Year

  1. Plant Based Milk
  2. Paleo and Ketogenic diet products
  3. More Vegan products
  4. High Protein snacks and desserts
  5. Nitrogen infused cold brew coffee
