Keep Healthy Apricot Coconut bars delicious

I tried a Keep Healthy Apricot coconut bar and it was delicious! It had all natural ingredients and was affordable. No I am not getting any benefit to saying this, just sharing something that I found that you might like.

One of the things I really liked about this is that most bars pair it with chocolate. Certainly delicious and good, but having it stand on its own allows you to further appreciate the coconut flavor. I tried one of the other flavors the Date Pecan and it was good, but I like the coconut best.

Unfortunately this isn’t a really common bar and I wasn’t able to find it at Whole Foods. When I asked for it, they said it had to go through a process to get it approved. I said I would buy a case every week if they had it.

I have tried many bars and gotten burnt out on them. It was on a whim that I tried this and really liked it. It was genius to pair these flavors together.

Ok, so its obvious I like it. What is the downside of this? I didn’t have any downside. That is part of the reason that I like it. With other bars you sometimes get an upset stomach hours later while you are digesting it. Oh and don’t make the mistake of eating two Luna bars at once like I did. Experiment as your own risk.

I guess the only improvement I could ask for is in the packaging. If it had biodegradable packaging like that Algae thing I wrote about before it would be cool. It is probably hard keeping things free with natural materials like that. Perhaps one day packaging science will evolve to be worthy of these natural bars.

I like the fact that since they are in NY and I am in the NY area it is locally sourced. It would be neat if areas could grow their food needs locally, but that day will probably never come. Till then we can do our part to eat local foods.

Water bottle that is 100% degradableSo using Algae this water bottle totally degrades.

I wonder if this is the next generation of bottles for natural companies like Naked?

What is cool about this is that it was developed relatively cheaply by an individual. You really are forced to wonder if people with no funding can find solutions like this, why can’t big business?

Of course there may not be a financial incentive, but one day it will no longer be a choice. Business force holding onto the past as much as possible, and discourage new and innovative methods.

For example, all of the bottle manufactures could have come up with this concept. Maybe they already have plans for a bottle that breaks down. Many companies exist because they get paid by their supplies to use their supplies. Like the government pays farmers to not grow things, companies pay other companies to not use other products.

Maybe what needs to be done to help move things in a more environmental direction is to not allow companies that produce earth destroying materials to make a profit. Any profit they make has to be used to research and development and the other half is to clean up the mess already made with their product. Just like BP had to clean up their mess and pay a fine, there has to be a both a carrot and stick approach with social change.

The guy who developed this should be famous. Anyone who is creative and comes up with innovative ways should be regarded for what they are, a powerful and helpful person. Perhaps this won’t be the ultimate solution, but it is a step in the right direction. At the very least it might be used for animal packaging, where they can just throw in the bottles or packaging and let the animals eat the algae as well.

What does the future hold? Certainly more of this kind of thinking I hope.
