Healthy snacks, tiny shoes and a TumbleBus?
Yesterday Grimm's had the pleasure of attending the 2017 Healthy Family Expo at the Convention Centre in Vancouver BC for the first time.
We were there bright and early in the morning to set up in the Whole Foods section of the show.
The doors opened at 9 AM and away we went! We brought along our whole line of Naturally Fermented Pickles, Sauerkraut, and Kimchi for everyone to sample.
Our goal was to be fun and interactive while educating everyone about the benefits of fermented foods. We brought along a big jug of our Naturally Fermented Pickle juice with the question "Are you up for a Grimm's Shot?"
It turns out (after a lot of "What is that?") people were on board!
So, what exactly is a Grimm's Shot and what are the benefits?
Many are familiar with drinking pickle juice; it has several benefits as listed in the article from Delish.
Naturally fermented foods one up these benefits as they are raw and unpasteurized, therefore packed with healthy bacteria and probiotics. The brine from these foods hold millions of these helpful bacteria that promote good gut health!
We encourage people to keep this brine and incorporate it into salad dressings and dips, or to drink it straight like in a Grimm's Shot! In fact we had many adventurous little ones that were eager to partake in this.
Now, we may not have rivaled the fun being had on the trampolines, or at the Bobs & Lolo concert, but we did have a great time talking to many different families about fermented foods!
All in all it was a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon in Vancouver!
