The organizers' mission is to "educate and give people the tools to live a life that is good for all of us, the animals and the planet. It is our hope that you experience the joys of plant powered living."
I arrived right when a cooking demonstration was beginning. Breast cancer survivor and Food for Life Instructor Amberlea Childs made a Kale and Brussel Salad which looked delicious and easy to make!
Following the demonstration, I went to hear integrative nutritionist and gourmet cook Carol d'Anca speak on the topic of "Food Not Meds." She was a fantastic speaker! Since nutrition is my hobby, I was familiar with much of the material she covered, but I still found it to be very inspirational and reassuring.
Doesn't this dessert look divine? You can find the recipe for it in Carol's book, Real Food for Healthy People: A recipe and resource guide.
I tried Gorilly Goods for the first time and they were so flavorful and full of wholesome ingredients. I love that they are made locally in Jackson, Wisconsin.
Attendees could also enter to win raffle prizes.
I picked up lunch at the Indian Village booth which was quite popular. The sampler plate I had was spicy and tasty!
I can't wait to see what the second Milwaukee Veg Expo has to offer next year!
