I’ve mentioned before that I have a great affinity for keeping healthy snacks available for my kids at all times, hence the “snack bag” that follows us everywhere. I have become a master a keeping nutritious nibbles on hand for the little ones, but like many parents I often tend to forget my own needs.
Dried fruit snacks and rice cakes are big favorites for the kids, and they somewhat satisfy me at times. But, there are other instances when I crave a flavor that is simply more grown up. These are the times when I’ve recently reached for Yoga Earth’s delicious Keen-Wäh Decadence Bars. The moniker doesn’t lie, these full flavored crispy cacao treats indulge my adult taste buds while providing complete protein which curbs my hunger too.
On taste alone, you’d never guess that these organic bars are gluten free and chock full of antioxidants plus super foods like quinoa, almonds, and cacao. They had me at the original Chocolate Chia flavor but have recently continued to tempt me with two new varieties ~ Coconut Almond and Cayenne Cinnamon (my personal favorite). Sweetened with low-glycemic coconut nectar, Keen-Wäh Decadence are just the right amount of sweet, rounded out by the lovely bitter bite of cacao, the cayenne kick, or the almond crunch; there is something to excite every palate! Not just for kids, my seven year old loves the Chocolate Chia and the Coconut Almond flavors when I manage to save her a bite.
When I discovered their wonderful crystalized coconut water, I also found out that YogaEarth donates 1% of its profits to Kiva, a groundbreaking nonprofit which allows people to lend money, in $25 increments to great causes worldwide, such as agriculture and rebuilding. Kiva vets the loans requested and the borrowers repay the lender through their website. I love this concept and that YogaEarth, supports it.
This is not the only way the Southern California based company works with the community. Their products, including organic foods, yoga gear, and natural products are designed with consumer input. As a member of their community, you can suggest and vote on product ideas, plus receive discounts. In fact, Keen-Wäh Decadence Bars were created through this program, with the community’s input!
I’m continuously impressed by the extra steps Yoga Earth takes to help the environment. They’re striving toward zero waste, manufacture locally, and employ sustainable practices. “The company has designed a packaging program to optimize use of recycled materials, while protecting product integrity and safety. Outer packaging is FSC-certified and 80% minimum post-consumer waste. Packaging is produced in fully wind-powered facilities.”
