I attended Veggie Fest today and was Amazed at how many people were in attendance. As always, I headed straight for the food court to dive into deliciousness.
First stop Mumbai Munchies
I loved this Indian version of nachos called Papdi Chaat.
Papri chaat is traditionally prepared using crisp fried dough wafers known as papri, along with boiled chick peas, boiled potatoes, yogurt and tamarand chutney and topped with chaat masala and sev.
My second favorite thing was this tiny slice of key lime pie packed with a lot of flavor.
I definitely was excited to try new vegetarian foods, loved all the vendors and even received some great freebies from Whole Foods but I was disapointed that the foods did not have more veggies nor we there any local farmers with veggies for sale.
I really enjoyed the cooking demo out on by Nature’s Pathway organic. The speaker was very energetic and knowledgeable and created two wonderful snacks.
The first was grilled fruit salad.
We werent able to sample it but I love THE idea of combining fresh fruit, Greek yogurt with an organic cereal for crunch.
Overall it was a great day and sure beats eating junk from a fast food chain!
