Keen-Wah Decadence Protein bars, what a great way to start the day. I tried the Organic Chocolate Chia and wow, what an incredibly rich, smooth and creamy chocolate taste. The bar is very filling made with quinoa, and doesn’t taste like your normal protein bar, which lets be honest - can often be dry and tasteless.
This was really, really good, tasting far more like a special treat than it does a protein bar, which makes it perfect for breakfast or an anytime snack. If your need to eat to ground as a part of your practices this is a great bar for that too.
With about 200 calories per bar, these are a perfect snack to sneak in if you are watching your caloric intake.
Keen-Wah Decadence Protein bars are available in Organic Cayenne Cinnamon, Organic Coconut Almond, and Organic Chocolate Chia.
Also from Yoga Earth, is the Coconut Water Purity drink mix. This drink mix was my first introduction to coconut water and as someone who can’t stand the taste of coconut, I was pleasantly surprised. While I had expected a strong, overpowering, taste of coconut, this was nothing like that. It was very light, very refreshing. The mix dissolved quickly and easily when added to water, and had a really great taste with no powdered texture.
Each package of the drink mix adds 50 calories to your water, and because of the convenient packaging, you can take it with you anywhere. A glass of coconut water and a bar and you have a 250 calorie lunch that will help get you through the day as it packs you with some real energy and not a sugar rush.
Both of these items are great to keep on hand in your home this winter for those power outages and in your car along with some bottled water for your emergency kit in case you get stranded. Being stranded of course is no fun, and while you could use any kind of a protein bar and drink, it might be more comforting to have something extra special on hand.
