My experience at the Food Fete media event recently last month was filled with fascination at all the new, delicious, yet healthy food choices being launched and the privilege to sample all these yummy treats was both appreciated and well received. Food Fete never ceases to introduce the best of the best of food choices to editors.

Here are just some of my favorite healthy food items I encountered:

  • Upon entering the event space I noticed that my family’s favorite organic milk product, Horizon is expanding beyond the dairy case to present its new Horizon Mac and Cheese products as well. Being a trusted customer to Horizon organic milk, I requested a sample box of Horizon Mac and Cheese Pasta Cows and Mild Cheddar Cheese to try. I was stunned at the great taste and my family loved gobbling up the tasty cows. I will definitely look for Horizon Pasta Cows and Mild Cheddar Cheese at my local grocery store.
  • I saw the Duncan Hines Pink Velvet Cake and Salted Caramel Decadent Brown Mix varieties and decided to request these sample boxes to try baking them together with my family. Not only was baking desserts a fun and educational project to participate in with the whole family, it also came out very moist and delicious, just like the samples from the Food Fete event. I was pleasantly surprised at how yummy these new flavors were, as well as, how deliciously memorable the brownies were.
  • I then gravitated to the Late July Organic Snacks table and came across some Late July Organic Sea Salt Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips that automatically caught my eye. That night, I decided to whip up a batch of guacamole for my tortilla chips as an accompaniment and put on my favorite sentimental movie Beaches to watch with my family as we snacked. This wonderful Late July Tortilla Chip Snack is thin, crispy and delicious. These chips are authentic Restaurant Style Chips that are Certified USDA Organic, non-GMO and gluen-free. Not only are they yummy and guilt-free, but they enhanced watching my favorite chick flick by greater dimensions. I will always reach for Late July Organic Tortilla Chips every time I watch a sad movie on DVD to savor the moment of deep contemplation with something healthy, and savory.
  • Saving the best for last, my most favorite table at the Food Fete media event was the Peach Dish display! Their mission is to bring customers Southern inspired meals that are seasonally freshest and convenient, because the package comes with all the ingredients to your door and has easy to follow recipes. This saves on guesswork and footwork, and that’s the charm. For just $50 a week, you get two multi-course dinners for two people. And that’s a great deal, because the food puts you in the mood for romance with your sweetie and is time saving so you can have energy to focus on more important things like romance. They say, the way to someone’s heart is via one’s stomach. Thanks to Peach Dish, it’s easy to cook a delicious, homemade, and romantic dinner. I must say, that night was one of the best date night ever, thanks to Peach Dish for gearing me towards the right direction in terms of cooking a tasty and top quality meal, without having to go out to shop for the ingredients!
