Last month I attended Natural Products Expo East, one of two major natural food trade shows that happen annually. I’m always amazed at how many products fall into the health and wellness category – and how different some people’s definition of those terms can be, LOL. Anyhow, I love going to this event for the education, the networking, the samples, (omg – so many!) and to see what’s new and fun that I can be looking for on store shelves soon.

And out of the hundreds and hundreds of products that I saw, here are some of my favorites. None of these mentions have been sponsored by these brands, I just really like them. Read on and let me know which one you’re most excited about trying!

1. Wildbrine Probiotic Spicy Kimchi Sriracha
I don’t know about you, but I’m a HUGE sriracha fan. Like, I could put it on almost anything. On my eggs, salad, and lentils – you get the picture. Here’s the not so great news though: have you ever looked at the ingredients? Most have sugar and also sodium bisulfate. As my kids say, what the what??
So, I was DELIGHTED to see Wildbrine’s new sriracha, which has the following ingredients: Napa Cabbage, Fresno Pepper, Water, Garlic, Green Onion, Sea Salt, Sea Vegetable (wahkame), Korean Red Pepper, Ginger. Sign me up! Looks like I have a hot new favorite – or is that new hot favorite :)?

2. Hilary’s Millet Medley’s
I’m gonna be honest: I stink at making sides. Yeah, I’m usually good with the “main meal” and am pretty good with providing a veggie to accompany it. But as for any sides, I find myself quickly searching the kitchen for anything I can throw on the table.
Enter Hilary’s, a brand that believes in steering clear of the common allergens with their products which are convenient, tasty and REAL, to boot! Their new Millet Medley’s are a new family fave for us. Full of all-natural goodness such as millet, peas, carrots, lentils and more, this one is spiced up with oh-so-popular turmeric, cumin and more (one of three flavors). Try serving one up at a future dinner (or lunch!) at your house.

3. New Barn Unsweetened Almond Milk
I can’t say enough good things about this brand. I first found out about them at last year’s conference, and I’ve been turned on to them ever since. Almond milk without all of the additives; simple, yet pure. And you can taste it. Don’t give into those bigger bottles that are full of added unnecessary ingredients – say yes to New Barn. Make sure to try out their newest: UNSWEETENED Vanilla, coming soon to a store near you. Oh, and p.s. – for those who like a little sweetness (yep, me too!) rest assured that their sweetened version includes natural maple syrup.

4. Organic Valley’s Hard-Boiled Eggs
I know what you’re thinking. Did she seriously just say hard-boiled eggs? Yeah, I did. Because they are such a solid, portable, protein-filled snack. I don’t know about you, but when hunger strikes, one or two of these babies can satisfy my hunger pangs – love ’em!
The problem is that others in my house do, too. Though I generally cook them in batches, sometimes I go to grab one and they’re gone. Enter one of my favorite brands, Organic Valley, who has packaged up organic versions of these that you can purchase (and pop subsequently). Oh, for those with active teenage boys – or girls, for that matter – this is an awesome real-food snack to power up before or after play.

5. Bear Real Fruit Yo-Yo’s
Seriously, you guys. Why has it taken so long to get some good ol’ natural fruit leathers? Sure you can make your own, but sometimes ya just want to pick some up at the store. Bear Fruit Yo-Yo’s are made with fruit and vegetables and nothing else. No added sugars, no added junk. They come in 4 flavors: Raspberry, Mango, Apple or Strawberry, and their packaging is so adorable that in my pile of loot that I brought back, my 6- and 9-year olds picked these out of the pile first simply for the package! Bonus: They loved the contents inside just as much.

Inside they have adventure cards for kids to collect … such a fun concept. These are a new mainstay in our pantry. If you have kids, they should be in yours, too!

6. Luxebaby Biodegradable Diapers
Though I’m no longer personally in this stage of life, I thought these were so super cool that I needed to share it with all of the moms-to-be and mommas of little ones. Gosh I miss those days! ;(.  Get this – these are FULLY ECO biodegradable/compostable disposable diapers that are made with sustainable materials, hypoallergenic-formulated for sensitive skin, anti-bacterial, chlorine free, polymer free and latex free.
Oh, and their name is soooo cute. Poof! I love it. Check these out; they’d make such a fun baby gift or even an addition for your babes.

So there ya have it. If you can’t find these at a store near you just yet, don’t fret – it’s coming soon! Now out of these, which one(s) of these 6 new clean products are you most excited about?

  1. I just bought the Wildbrine Sriracha sauce. It is SO flavorful and fresh tasting and I will be using it in everything. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Hooray for clean sriracha and almond milk. Now if we could get the almond milk fortified with extra calcium too that would be great.

  3. Are the Bear Fruit Yo-Yo’s available locally? The shop link on their webpage is broken and $7.20 for only 5 roll-ups on Amazon is not in my budget. I was hoping to buy some as stocking stuffers.

      The shop link works on their site now but I do not see a local (Charlotte area) option. They provide a direct link to Amazon and I noticed there is a bit of a price break if you order larger quantities.

  4. Yay you, Lisa for your discovery! I’m in the Northeast, and my vote is a two-way tie between Hilary’ Millet Medley and New Barn unsweetened almond milk (I can never find almond milk with no added ingredients). Glad you included the Mountain Rose Herbs organic teas as well. Thank you :-)
