Healthy Foods and Beverages Featured at Health Wellness & Lifestyle Expo this September
The 11th Annual Health Wellness & Lifestyle Expo 2022 with special thanks to Stamford Health, Exclusive Healthcare Partner, returns to Harbor Point along the boardwalk in Stamford on September 10, from 10am to 6pm. The one-day, free Expo will feature over 100 inspiring and educational exhibitors, selling and showcasing their products and services, providing on-site health screenings, free group fitness classes, pet and kids zones and a high-energy dance exercise experience with Dance it Out creator Billy Blanks, Jr. Healthy food and beverage options will be abundant at the popular Healthy Food, Restaurants and Beverage Zone and the Eco-Friendly Wine, Spirits and Craft Beer Zone, as well as the Healthy Food Truck Zone.
Consumers continue to become more conscious of what they put into their bodies. The public’s demand for better quality, organic, clean, sustainable and healthier food and beverage choices has sparked a whole new generation of products to come on the market that are easily attainable and enjoyable. Premiere event sponsor Grade A ShopRite will be on site with registered nutritionists providing healthy recipes and guidance on smart food choices when shopping for household groceries. ShopRite offers free dietician counseling and nutritional services, in addition to their WELL Everyday program.
According to Livestrong.com, a positive outcome during the pandemic saw households preparing more meals at home and taking a significant departure from fast food consumption and indulgent restaurant fare. Forty-four percent ate breakfast at home every day (compared to 33 percent pre-COVID), 31 percent ate lunch at home every day (compared to 18 percent pre-COVID) and 33 percent ate dinner at home every night (compared to 21 percent pre-COVID). With a shift back into a new normal, healthy food choices and food preparations are essential in maintaining the balance our bodies crave.
Education and convenience remain a key factor in our healthy choices. Red meat has made a comeback on our tables with the accessibility to lean grass-fed beef choices. Whole grain breads continue to give white bread a run for its money with consumers opting for more nutrient and fiber rich varieties. Even our caffeinated and alcoholic beverages are being produced with healthier and more sustainable practices at the forefront.
This year’s theme is: Go. Gather. Grow. Let’s go to the expo. Let’s gather by coming together with family and friends and making new connections. Let’s grow by experiencing the many extraordinary sponsors and exhibitors, selling and showcasing cutting-edge programs, products and services to help you and your family grow physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually in a healthy direction.
