We started things off with a strawberry, banana and pineapple smoothie.
We came for, what else, the raw tacos.
Have taco, will travel! Raw, fresh and full of flavour.
Lily and Buddy (aka Bubby) about to dive into their tacos. After a few bites the GFG muse declared: “I could eat these every day.”
Co-owner of Live and raw food pioneer Jennifer Italiano flashes a smile.
Culinary nutritionist Marni Wasserman wants to feed your mind (and tummy)! Most of her cooking classes are gluten free. I’ve been to a couple (it’s a great date night!), and not only is the food indeed delicious, I also learned a lot from her. Check out Marni’s blog for some healthy inspiration.
I’m thinking, look at those cinnamon buns! She’s thinking, not another photo! I happily surrender the camera.
Lily set her sights on her favourite Bunner’s brownies.
Our next destination for some groovy GF goodies: LPK’s. Mama wants some warm sweet potato donut holes!
Here we also got to sample some yummy chocolate Power Pudding from Live on Chocolate (yes, we could). Bet you never ate pudding made from quinoa, sprouted broccoli and lentils!
Salted caramel peanut butter. You heard me. At the Monkey Butter booth I went nuts. It was between that and the dark chocolate banana peanut butter, so I bought both. Lily’s not a PB fan, but her little sister Franny will be licking the spoon clean.
All the Monkey Butter flavours except one (white chocolate pretzel) are gluten free!
We saved Sweets from the Earth for our last stop, where we met owner Marc Kadonoff. They have a dedicated gluten-free bakery!
Sweets from the Earth teamed up with chef Doug McNish to create these gluten-free chewy almond fudge cookies that they launched at the festival.
Check out the chocolatey fudge centre! Eager to Name The Cookie, we filled out a ballot.
Thumbs up for the “luscious Lily cookie”!
Well hello dollies!
Filled with tummy love, we headed to the park and Lily climbed as high as she could.
