This blog is for and about the Webster family. Each of us want to make choices every day that will result in optimal health and fitness. We represent different generations and different places in life - from empty-nesters to young families to students. Our health goals are as varied as we are, but we want to have a common place to post our progress and our challenges. We will be accountable to each other - to provide support, design incentives, share information we come across, and in general cheer each other on and celebrate our steps toward fitness! If anyone happens upon this blog and is inspired to be more fit and healthy that is icing on the cake. So here we go!

So this weekend Sophie and I got to go to VegFest. We went Saturday after church and then I went again today while Sophie was at work. It was a lot of fun getting to sample new products. There were an amazing amount of vendors, many of whom were giving out free samples. We also signed up for Vegetarians of Washington, which came with a year's subscription to Vegetarian Times and a goodie bag. Here's what we brought home at the end of day one:

"Melt" there on the right is a butter substitute with coconut butter as its main ingredient. You can bake with it and it tastes amazing. The loaf of bread on the left is "Dave's Killer Bread." It's the best store-bought bread ever. The little boxes of cereal are from Cascadian Farms. It's Dark Chocolate Almond granola. The stuff in the blue packages is a peanut butter substitute made from roasted sesame seeds--very yummy. The canister next to the Pop Chips is a cultured almond milk yogurt. You can seem by kettlebells and swiss ball in the upper right corner. Not pictured is the raft of coupons or our messy apartment. Anyway, here's what I brought home today:

Sophie told me not to get anymore Melt since we already had three, but they were putting them in all the gift bags and one lady just came up and handed one to me. The green bottle is coconut water. The "GoodBelly" stuff on the lower left is a probiotic drink mix. The can of soda is a stevia flavored drink. As you can see we got more bread, more milk and yet more tea. You may also notice that there are a lot of boxes of Cascadian Farms cereal and lots of Odwalla Bars. Let's just say that those booths rotated volunteers a lot and leave it at that. 


  1. Wow! Lots of yummy and healthy-looking loot! I want to go next year. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Dave's Killer Bread is amazingly delicious! Online there is a video clip of him making 100% whole wheat bread (will send the link soon), the recipe is included.

  3. They sell Dave's Killer Bread at Costco here in Medford. It is good but my boys thought all the grains were weird. I think we should make a date of the VegeFest and go together!!- Brooke-

  4. Okay - sounds like a plan. I think they have one in Portland too. Will check on it.
