Lucire Rouge: Counter intelligence: summer snacking with “good” calories and better taste
LivBar (US$33 for Crowd Pleaser box of 12; US$3·49 each, Amazon and Instacart): while takeaway or to-go meals are notoriously not the healthiest, Oregon-based LivBar turns the concept on its head with a just-launched line of USDA-certified organic nutrition bars that don’t melt or freeze! Each bar is hand-baked with superfood and immunity-supporting ingredients in the company’s solar-powered, dedicated gluten-free, and SQF-certified facility. The colourful, flavour combinations include coffee maple cacao, ginger lemon turmeric, raspberry kale maca, lemongrass cherry matcha, and blueberry vanilla kale. The vibrant wrappers, meanwhile, are 100 per cent compostable and made from cellulose, the most abundant of naturally occurring organic materials.
