When I first saw Holy Crap at Natural Products Expo West 2013, my immediate thought was “It must be dog food.”

And to be honest, I was very turned off and stayed away.

Yet after passing by their booth several times, my curiosity got the best of me and I went to go see what Holy Crap was all about.

In fact, it wasn’t dog food but rather an organic superfood cereal made from chia seeds, hulled hemp hearts, buckwheat, cranberries, raisins, apple bits and cinnamon.

The story goes that an early fan of the cereal was so impressed that the words “Holy Crap” were the first ones to come out of his mouth. In a stroke of genius, founder Brian Mullin, quickly changed the name of the product to Holy Crap and sales increased 1000%. Read more »

Yesterday at Natural Products Expo West, the biggest organic trade show of the year, Whole Foods made a HUGE announcement.

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 »
