At the end of 2011, I got word from one of my favorite companies about an exciting opportunity in 2012!
As you all probably know, my heart swoons over Larabars . I have been eating them for a few years and proclaiming my love for them one cashew cookie bar at a time. Last year I found out that Larabar has an Ambassador Program for health and fitness professionals (not that I am calling myself a professional AT ALL), and I thought it would be a great program for me to become a part of to help me share my love for Larabars with you all!
To help kick off the celebration of becoming a Larabar Ambassador (and for February being American Heart Month!), I thought I would host a giveaway with some of the goodies Larabar has sent me.
One of the things I love about Larabar is their pure ingredients – each one of the bars is comprised of no more than 9 ingredients, some of which are of the nut variety.
Since February is American Heart Month, I can’t let it go without saying how heart healthy nuts are for your body. Taken from the Mayo Clinic, nuts have been shown to be:
made up of unsaturated fats (the good kind!)
include omega-3 fatty acids (perfect for a vegetarian)
high in fiber
include Vitamin E (which may help to stop plaque build up in your arteries)
