snack healthfully (LARABAR giveaway!)

Posted Feb 07 2012 6:00pm

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)

All of those awesome qualities can also help to lower bad cholesterol. Time for some snacking!

For my first Larabar giveaway, one lucky reader will be winning 12 of my favorite Larabar mini’s as well as a Larabar water bottle.
