Healthy Taste of Knoxville

Today is the day when Homeschool Ways will take the show on the road. We will have a booth at an event called The Healthy Taste of Knoxville. This second annual event is held on Kingston Pike, the main highway that goes through Knoxville, just two blocks away from the University of Tennessee campus.

It was a few weeks ago the organizers approached me and asked if I would like to bring my books and any information I may have about homeschooling to this show. They told me during the show last year a lot of people were inquiring about “alternative choices” in lifestyle and it included food, education, and spirituality. By a lot of people we mean over 1,000.

I have personally been a vegetarian since 1992, so I could share a lot about healthy eating. I could even have a food blog. But, there is only so much time in the day and I have other priorities. By the way, my doctor tells me I am one of her healthiest patients when she sees me for my annual checkup.

The organizers said, “We would love it if you could bring information about homeschooling. People who are open-minded about changing their diet are also open-minded about schooling options for their children.” Isn’t that the truth?

Well, I’m glad to serve!

For clarity’s sake, let me repeat the main facts below.


What: Health Fair and Vegetarian/Vegan Tasting (Gluten Free, too)

When: September 18, 2016 1:30PM-4PM

Where: 3611 Kingston Pike, Knoxville TN

Why: To taste delicious foods and learn more about health

How: FREE and FREE parking


Your humble correspondent will have books available for sale about homeschooling. I prepared vegan burger samples to share with folks. Many vendors will be present to share delicious vegetarian and vegan free samples. Some vendors will have items for sale.

Last year, this event drew over 1,000 people, and they expect it will double this year. The weather seems to be at least overcast but never fear, the event is inside. The building looks like a gym. There will be parking attendants to direct you. If you follow the posters on the road, you should have no problem finding it.

The Knoxville Police Department has sent us some officers as well, so do not be alarmed if you see a police presence. They are there to help smooth out the traffic going in and out of the campus. See you there!
