New foods we’re into

Three new foods that we’re loving these days:

Evolve Kefir
We love kefir — it’s got more gut-boosting bacteria than Greek yogurt, with double the protein and 10 percent more calcium — but we know not everyone is into slurping the the slightly tangy cool treat. Now, there’s a new option: Evolve’s spoonable Greek kefir, which is the first product of its kind to hit shelves. It’s less tangy than the drinkable stuff, and comes in fruit-on-the-bottom flavors like strawberry, blueberry and peach. Find it in the dairy aisle.
$1.99, grocery stores

Organic Avenue’s quinoa bowl
Organic Avenue, purveyors of orange totes and green juices that are highly coveted coast to coast, is branching out into cooked-food territory with the release of its first cooked vegan product, the quinoa bowl. Available in three varieties — Mexi-Fresh Veggies, Turmeric Tomato Cauliflower, and Sweet Yam & Celery — the bowl is a hearty mix of red and white quinoa with a medley of veggies and spices.
$10, Organic Avenue stores

ZombieFoodBars
This protein-packed organic, vegetarian, gluten-free and peanut-free bar was created by Dr. Michael Wald, a marathoner and zombie enthusiast. Take it with you when you need some energy to escape the zombie apocalypse, or snack on one the next time you turn on “The Walking Dead.” Dr. Wald assures us that it tastes better than brains, and he’s right (though the barometer there is pretty low). But seriously, we liked it.
$4.25 per bar or $46 for 12, www.zombiefoodbar.com
