During break time at the International Association of Exhibitions and Events' annual conference Expo! Expo! in Los Angeles, show organizers left an energy-boosting spread of nuts, wasabi peas and dried fruits on a long table with serving spoons. Attendees were able to scoop a mixture of their choosing into disposable personal bowls. Nearby, glass jars filled with fruit were also offered and could either be eaten as a fruit salad or brought to a station where it was emptied into a blender, mixed with orange juice and ice and turned into a smoothie.
