Kardea Nutrition Bar

Nutrition bars are one of the easiest and best snacks for vegans, especially traveling vegans. They’re light, easy to pack and can have a lot of nutritional value. When we travel short term, we always pack bars for flights, walks and bus rides. For our year long adventure, we’ve had to buy bars as we go. We can’t be picky about the brand because our options are often limited. However, we always look for vegan bars with a good source of protein and interesting flavours.

Kardea Nutrition Bars

Back in April, when I visited Toronto, there was a sample pack of Kardea Nutrition Bars waiting for me. I burned through them quickly, loving the flavour pairings and smooth texture. When I saw the bars at a Whole Foods in New York, I was quick to buy the chai spice and lemon ginger bars, my favourite two of the four flavours.
