In Honor of Fall, a Larabar Giveaway! (closed)

This giveaway is closed

Nothing big happened this morning, just… I ran a half marathon before my first half marathon! Ok, so I’ve done that before (14 miles at the farthest) but I just thought it’d be fun to make a bigger deal out of it than need be 😉 Knowing K had 16 miles to do for her long run Saturday morning made it [again] easier for me to know I needed to meet up with her at 5:15am to do my own 3 miles before the group did their usual route of 10[ish.] I met up with her and another running gf to do the 13 mi trek through our usual route area. It was very humid this morning, but once the sun came out it became somewhat breezy and pretty cool! Cool?! Yes, cool for Florida! I was able to test out the new Brooks Ravennas I’d gotten last weekend too, which worked like a dream!

Now, we eat!
Afterwards, we met up with our friends for brunch before heading to a neighborhood Fall Festival. We stopped over at the Brunchery which is an awesome little breakfast place that’s always packed on the weekends – and for good reason! They have so much variety to their different omlettes and breakfast plates along with sandwiches; they’re definitely a local favorite!
This is a lobster/avocado/spinach omlette….

Then, it was time to enjoy the season of the pumpkin and head over to the festival

Hubs and I – haaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy
Me and my girl S
Taco Bus’ food truck was there [one of my other favorite local restaurants – a.k.a. heaven]…and there was room in my belly for one of these: a carne asada taco.
You know how I roll.

Those of you who know me know I really dig food. Quite a bit. Then again I really also dig being fit and working out. My philsophy has been that I want to enjoy food while also being as healthy as I can at the same time. The biggest way that I do this is to SNACK! I rarely sit to eat a large meal or a big portion of anything; I eat every 2 hours or so – unless I’ve run quite a bit of miles {clears throat.} I am always on the hunt for snacks that balance out a good carb to protein to healthy fat ratios; so I follow no diet, but look for balance with what I eat instead – especially during the work week.

One of my favorite snacks have been Larabars! I discovered them when trying out different snack bars and was pleasantly surprised that I was able to read all of the ingredients (nothing ended in -olic or
‘acid’) because they aren’t filled with crazy processed ingredients and were all natural! I also learned that none of the bars are made with anything outside of 2-9 ingredients.

Look Jaeden, the good stuff! – no GMOs!

After being in touch with the company, they were kind enough to send me some samples of flavors I hadn’t had before: Carrot Cake, Blueberry Muffin, Chocolate cherry torte, Key lime, Tropical Fruit, and Uber: Bananas foster. {Drool} In total, Larabar has 20 flavors with 5 new Uber flavors)

New flavors – goody goody!
they are cubicle buddies of mine
(* Larabar did provide free product, but opinions are all my own)

The Verdict: they’re all gone. I really liked how the Uber bar was a bit more nutty and tasted just like Bananas Foster! My overall Favorite flavor? Chocolate Cherry Torte!
I love the mix of sweet and tart in this flavor and who’s going to argue with chocolate??

Not too shabby for a sweet, healthy treat!

With all that being said, I want one of you to win the opportunity to try out these fabulous bars of yummy goodness!

Larabar has graciously offered to do a giveaway where one of my readers will win a 16 pack of Larabars with all kinds of flavors!

    ANYTHING with chocolate in it – I haven’t been able to eat those ones due to my 8 week Whole Life Challenge but I eat all the other ones regularly. Peanut Butter Cookie is the best thing in the whole world!

    I am so sad. I can’t eat Larabars because of the “may contain nuts” factor. But they sound so good!!!

    A pumpkin maze and a taco bus in the same day? That’s an awesome day in my book. I love food too, but I love it a little too much which is why I run.
