The Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival is just around the corner. For those of you who have never been the Toronto Vegetarian Food Fair, it’s like a big party of some of the best of friends, brands and of course, food!
This year we are fortunate enough to have a created a community that will be representing some of the most delicious and nutritious brands of veg-friendly products. These are companies whose products are healthy, environmentally conscious and happen to just taste delicious!
Each one of these companies products will influence and inspire you to make healthier choices in your everyday lifestyle.
The brands that are part of our community are:
You know all about the power of coconut oil… or do you? If not, coconut oil can be used in cooking as it has a high smoke point, in baking as an alternative to many overly refined oils, as a skin moisturizer and as a source for energy before a workout. Coconut oil is composed mainly of medium-chain triglycerides, which means they are used for energy and not stored as fat. Our favourite brand to use is Bali Sun, whose virgin coconut oil that has a smooth, mild coconut flavour, it is made in Thailand and is cold-processed using no harsh chemicals. Bali Sun will be sampling their delicious coconut oil at our booth so make sure you stop by and taste the superior quality of this coconut oil. We will also have their newest product available as well coconut nectar and coconut ambrosia (coconut butter). So come early before it all sells out!
For a long time, the only store-bought version of non-dairy ice cream was soy-based. When coconut ice cream was available to Canadians, well let’s just say we were pretty darn happy. Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss is made from coconut-milk and is dairy and soy free! Not to mention all the delicious flavours including Island Vanilla, Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge and Mocha Maca Crunch. If you really want to be convinced, come visit our booth for samples (you’ll be wanting seconds!)
Organic, gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy free and vegan crackers, cookies and snacks? Is this too good to be true? Nope! This is Mary’s Crackers, a fantastic brand with products such as caraway crackers, chocolate chip cookies and Pretzels! We love Mary’s Herb Crackers with hummus and veggie sticks as an afternoon snack. Mary’s is such a great option for those with gluten allergy or sensitivity as the products are so delicious. Come by our booth and go crackers!
The word ‘superfood’ gets thrown around a lot, everything wants to be a super food but Navitas Naturals brand provides true superfoods such as acai powder, raw cacao, golden berries and mesquite powder. This is also a company with ethics! Navitas Naturals believes in a whole foods philosophy (just like we do!) and provide organic products with minimal processing. We love all of their products!
There are a lot of protein powders on the market but Sunwarrior has stolen our hearts. Made from sprouted, whole grain brown rice making it easily digestible and hypoallergenic, so it’s a great option for those with dairy issues. Sunwarrior Vanilla flavour is our fave, it has a delicious flavour with no funny after taste. We love to make protein smoothies with Sunwarrior after our workouts and have noticed that our recovery time is much faster (when compared to other protein powders on the market). We get asked which protein powders are good all the time, no seriously all the time and we tell people “Sunwarrior” and have received lots of positive feedback. Stop by our booth and see what the fuss is all about!
We are suckers for snacks! And we love to pack snacks for trips, hikes or strutting around town but carrying our snacks in plastic bags is not only dangerous (has the plastic baggie ever broken it’s seal and left you with chocolate chips at the bottom of your handbag? It stinks) as well, plastic bags are not good for the environment. That is why we love our Wean Green containers. These little glass tubs will fit perfectly into any bag and have an extra tight seal. We should also mention that they are made from recycled glass and are 5 times more durable than regular glass. They come in a variety of sizes and cute colours too, they are the perfect container for the whole family!
