Word Play

Last month we attended the Natural Products Expo West -Virtually. Congratulations to the team at New Hope, while we missed connecting with industry friends in person, the swap-card format was really efficient and easy! There was an overwhelming amount of trend data shared, so instead of recapping in our usual prose format, we thought that a psuedo-Haiku would best summarize our experience.
Joyful Plate poetry is a form of word play which keeps our ideas fresh and our language creative.

On that note, I heard author Eve Turow-Paul speak at the show and couldn't put her e-book down. I highly recommend Hungry: Avocado Toast, Instagram and influencers, and Our Search for Connection and Meaning because her research is primary, content is dense and scope is seismic.Hint: if you're eating solo, it's a good alternative to mukbang.CLICK HERE: HUNGRY, Eve Turow-Paul
