Health Food Fair of Las Vegas

April 12. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or just trying to improve your diet by cutting out those lard-filled Pop Tarts, the Health Food Fair promises something for every palate. There’ll be cooking and tasting stations, physical fitness experts doing exercise demos, live music and carnival attractions (all carnies are certified to be fair-trade and gluten-free). Nutrition counselors will also be on hand to dish out information about healthy eating. The event supports the mission of Rosie’s Wish and Life Skills & Skillets, tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations that teach life skills for people of all ages who suffer from diabetes, and for prevention of diseases such as obesity through healthy cooking and eating habits. Nutritional advice is combined with personalized movement information to create a healthier lifestyle. 11a-6p. $3-$5. Clark County Amphitheatre
