Tips for Healthy Eating and More this Weekend at Vikasa Expo


It’s almost the end of January, are you still on track with your New Year’s resolutions? Whether you’ve yet to stroll down the path towards health and wellness or are looking to optimize your already virtuous lifestyle, there’s plenty to learn from the exhibits, cooking demos, and workshops at this weekend’s Vikasa Expo.

According to Orlando Native Felicia Dhanani, one of the event’s creators and organizers, “vikasa” is a Sanskrit word that invokes radiance, progress, expansion, growth, and balance development.  A balanced approach to diet and nutrition is key to a healthy lifestyle, and there is a full roster of local cooking and nutrition professionals presenting demos throughout the weekend on topics including Indian cooking, gluten-free diets, eating healthy on a budget, raw juicing, and more. A complete schedule is available online.

Tickets are available online and include all workshops, demos, and access to the expo hall. $12 general admission; $20 weekend pass. Use the promo code “Fresh” and receive $20 off your entire purchase.
