One of my favorite Montreal events is here: the Expo Manger Santé et Vivre Vert. It’s a great event to learn about eco food trends and try lots of food samples.
At the 19th edition of the Expo Manger Santé et Vivre Vert, health food, ecology and global health enthusiasts will be able to treat all their senses on March 11-12-13 at the Palais des congrès in Montréal and March 19-20 at the Centre des congrès in Québec City! More than 30,000 visitors in those two cities are expected to attend the largest Spring food and health event in Québec.

Pulses On the Menu
The Expo is proud to celebrate the International Year of Pulses by becoming the first large venue in Québec to welcome the traveling exhibition of the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, in collaboration with Pulse Canada, to increase the awareness about the health benefits of pulses.
Additionally, pulses will be featured at the 6th Championnat amateur de Cuisine santé de Montréal in which participants are to present a main course featuring beans, lentils and/or dried peas. The selected candidates will be granted 30 minutes to execute an eco-gastronomy recipe under the attentive eye of a jury. The event will take place Saturday, March 12th, starting at 10:30 am.
A Sparkling Program
The Expo is also a unique meeting and learning place thanks to the numerous conferences and cooking demonstrations that will be taking place simultaneously on our 3 educational stages . This year we will welcome for the first time chef Daniel Vézina, the experienced nutritionist Bernard Lavallée as well as Dr Gaétan Brouillard. Other active and well-known personalities will share their passions and know-how: sociologist Laure Waridel, comedian and author Jacynthe René, pharmacist Jean-Yves Dionne, nutritionist Anne-Marie Roy, cook and organic gardener Yves Gagnon, speaker, coach and yoga teacher Érik Giasson and many others will inspire you.
On Friday, March 11th, the 3rd edition of the Best Artisan Baker Contest, featuring certified organic products, will take place. This highly anticipated competition will welcome 10 professional bakers from the 4 corners of Québec.
Their challenge will consist of baking 3 types of breads using organic whole grain flours:
• Best sourdough baguette
• Best salted bread made with khorasan flour
• Best sweet bread made with spelt flour and using an “Aliments du Québec” certified product
Croquarium is to enchant the Expo again this year with the Adventurers of Taste activity which invites children and families to take part in new sensory experiences. Each day, tastings and surprises are planned to increase awareness in children of the pleasures associated with discovering new tastes. It is full of wonderful discoveries!
