Want a super healthy super delicious portable snack? Try Kelp Krunch, from Maine Coast Sea Vegetables. July 20 is the last day to order before they close down for the season, not to reopen again until September 4, so be sure to stock up. They're great for camping, travel, kids' lunches, and any time you need an energizing delicious snack.
I love these! They are low in calories and high in nutrition and also organic, vegan, and gluten free--the perfect snack. They are made with sesame seeds and kelp, and are sweetened with rice syrup. They have a wonderful crunchy texture and a salty-sweet flavor and I could probably eat a whole box they're so good, so luckily they are individually wrapped to help with restraint. Those of you that can control yourselves may buy it in bulk.
Sesame seeds are very high in calcium and seaweed is loaded with minerals and nutrients. I ordered three cases and after my first bite realized I should have ordered more. I've never tried the Ginger flavor, but I can highly recommend the original. A portion of the sales goes toAllied Whalefor whale conservation and research.

"It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine." ~Dr. Marcia Angell, 2009.

"Imagine the publicity if someone announced that they have developed a new treatment that cured 40 percent of all people with cancer. The media would be jumping up and down. That kind of benefit can be achieved today just by following a vegetarian diet. Right there you have an answer and no one's listening." - Oliver Alabaster, M.D., Director of the institute for Disease Prevention, George Washington University, Washington, D.C.
Love = Art
I tell you, the more I think, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people. ~ Van Gogh
