Alive Expo Atlanta Recap

Alive Expo Atlanta Recap via ProductReviewMom.com Disclosure- I received a free pass to attend as media to Alive Expo. 

This past Saturday, my daughters and I spent our time at Alive Expo at the World Congress center learning
about health and wellness.

The Expo was filled with:
  • Live Health Lectures
  • Vitamins &  Supplements
  • Natural Beauty Products
  • Natural & Organic Foods
  • Alternative Medicine
  • Eco Friendly Products
  • Healthy Cooking Demos
  • Yoga & Pilates Demos
  • Kid's Activities
  • Product Samples
  • Gluten Free Products
  • Free Massages
  • And More!

Everywhere I turned around there was live demos going on, organic foods to sample, and skincare to sample.  I found myself pulling money out of my wallet several times buying different things. 

I'm happy that I had attended this Expo because it was a wake up call for me because I'm a terrible eater.  I'm always looking for convince when it comes to foods that it's actually harming me in the long run.  The reason why I'm always buying unnatural convince foods is because of my busy schedule- I have a full time job, I'm a full time blogger, and have a household to run.

 I try to buy organic and natural foods as much as possible but it's so expensive to buy- I really wish that it would be more affordable in grocery stores.  I need to start visiting my local farmer's market and start buying my produce there and also buy fruits that are in season because it cost less.

I also learned that not all organic foods are truly organic, it still has some form of pesticides in it and GMO.  So again, best thing to do is to buy your produce from your local farmers market or just grow your own fruits and vegetables.  I was talking to my daughters about growing our own produce and they're all for it, (looks like we'll be taking a visit to Home Depot soon).

In the pictures below I watched Afya Ibomu make a yummy vegan salad that both of my daughters and I enjoyed eating.  I'm so bummed that I didn't get a chance to buy her book that is a complete guide of vegan foods and recipes, it also comes with a DVD.  Follow her on Instagram because she soon has a campaign coming  to encourage people to drink more water.

My daughters had me at the kids section of the Expo almost the whole time I was there.  They played on a bounce house, shoot some hoops, and also rocked out with Radio Disney.

What a great Expo!  I also got $150 worth of products in my swag bag (score)!  I'm happy that I was invited to attend and I look forward to attending again next year!

Before I go, I want to give a shout out to some companies I had a pleasure of talking to.

FranniesGlutenfree.com-  They had the best gluten free muffins I've ever tasted!  These muffins needs to be served in our children's schools instead of the unhealthy ones.

Fruitgrass.com-  They had great tasty energy drinks that is a natural energy, enhanced immunity, anti-aging, detoxifying, healthy weight loss, healthy skin, hair and nails, better digestion, and it helps improves circulation.

MeTime- MeTime had some great tasting lemonades.  If you're in the Atlanta area they can have some fresh lemonades delivered to you and they also do parties.

Ombotanical.com-  Ombotanical has a line of  vegan and gluten free skincare products.  I purchased their facial wash and have already used it and quickly seen improvement with my face.  My face is much more smoother and clearer.

LovelyLadyProducts.com-  Lovely Lady Products has a organic skincare line that is USDA organic.  I purchased their face moisturizer and it's working great!  I love the sweet lemongrass smell.

Leaheyfoods.com- Leahey Foods had some great organic cheese that my daughters enjoyed, so I picked up a bag of their macaroni and cheese.

  14. I am hearing more and more about these 'healthy' expos. I am finally convinced that I need to attend the next one in my area. I would like to plant a garden so that I know what I are really putting into my kids bodies. Thankfully, there is a farmer's market here in town.
