Video Review of Liquid Earth, A Great Organic Restaurant in Baltimore

Written by Max Goldberg on October 12, 2013. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

As many of you probably know, I was recently attended Natural Products Expo East 2013 in Baltimore, Maryland.

When I go there each year, there are two things are pretty much guarantees for me.

One, I stay at the AMAZING Inn at the Black Olive, the most green/organic hotel I’ve ever encountered.

Two, I make a visit to Liquid Earth, a fantastic organic restaurant just a few blocks away from the hotel.  Liquid Earth serves raw and cooked vegan organic food in a wonderful environment.

During my most recent visit, I shot this video above and you’ll spot two of my friends, Food Babe and Lora Krulak, in the footage as well. Enjoy! Read More »

Best Trade Show Booth from Natural Products Expo East 2013 – Brad’s Raw Foods

Written by Max Goldberg on October 7, 2013. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

Prior to arriving in Baltimore for Natural Products Expo East 2013, I was really curious to see who would have the best trade show booth.

Yet, it only took a few seconds to realize who the clear winner was.

BRAD’S RAW FOODS

Dubbed “the Barn” by the company, this amazing piece of work accomplished two things.

One, it accentuated the brand’s packaging with the wood’s color and texture. Two, it maximized the allotted floor space since the second level was able to hold up to 10 people and served as a private space for meetings.

Possibly, the smartest thing about this booth was that Brad’s Raw Foods created a video (see below) on how it was built. Read More »

Most Innovative Organic Products from Natural Products Expo East 2013

Written by Max Goldberg on October 1, 2013. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

This award is something that I started at Natural Products Expo West 2013 several months ago when Little Duck Organics took home the inaugural prize.

At Natural Products Expo East 2013, three companies really impressed me with their innovation.

GROWER PETE’S ORGANIC LIVING BUTTER LETTUCE

Every time I see Pete Overgaag, President of Hollandia Produce (the parent company of Grower Pete’s), at an organic trade show, I always run over to him with great excitement. I repeatedly remind him of the time that I discovered his lettuce growing in an actual pot at my local supermarket. After a few years, my enthusiasm for his product still hasn’t waned. Read More »

Last night, I got back from Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore and had a fantastic time. As I always do during the show in Baltimore, I stay at my absolute favorite hotel, The Inn at the Black Olive, the most green/organic hotel I’ve ever seen.

I’ll be doing several posts this week recapping my time in Baltimore, so please enjoy the first one – My Top 5 Organic Products from Natural Products Expo East 2013.

When I sampled the roasted eggplant pasta sauce from Yellow Barn, I immediately said to myself “Who needs pasta to eat this? I could this right out of the jar.” It was that delicious. Read More »

Next week is the biggest organic trade show of the year – Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA – and I came to California early to visit a friend and to check out the newest organic restaurants in San Francicso. (Stay tuned to my blog over the next few days, as I have some great ones that I am going to be sharing with you!)

For food on my flight, one product that I brought with me was Muesli Fusion’s Athlete Fuel.

I first discovered Muesli Fusion’s Athlete Fuel at Natural Products Expo East 2012 in Baltimore several months ago when I stopped by the company’s booth.

Right away, I was impressed with the product because it was hearty and filling. The product satisfied my hunger cravings, left me feeling very satiated, and was packed with plenty of Omega-3s from the nuts and seeds. Read More »
