Ah! I’m so excited! I’m just going to type and we’ll see what comes out.
LUNA Bars contacted me a little while ago asking to do a sponsored post because they are now GLUTEN FREE! Yes! This means a healthy gluten-free snack in a ton of different flavors! Keep reading to find out how to get a FREE sample.
You’re like “yay, woo hoo, I’ll check them out…I’m not hyper like you…” But there’s more, and this is really more on a personal level but as you all know by now I’m a food science student at Purdue. Guess who my dream company is to work for? Clif Bars. Guess who makes LUNA Bars? Yep! Clif Bars!
FYI, I don’t do sponsored posts for just any company. I only do them for companies I believe in who create products I’ll eat. For that reason this is my first sponsored post. Yes, they have paid me for this blog post. Frankly, I would (almost) pay them for the pleasure of writing this post!
LUNA bars are so insanely awesome and the company itself is fantastic too. Did you know that after you work there awhile they give you a bike so you can bike to work??! You all may not know this but I am a health NUT. Years ago I felt okay about the way my body looked but at 29 years old I was feeling old and that did not feel OK. I started working out, just 20 minutes a day. I felt better and worked out more. It became a habit, I felt better and better, I lost 50 lbs, and now at nearly 34 years old (birthday is less than 1 weeks away!) I feel healthier than when I was 20. I look better too.
As a full time college student and a mom to two kids I am pretty much on the go from morning to night. I get up extra early to workout then it’s the crazy morning rush and off to school for everyone. Purdue is a huge school and I walk 3 miles a day just going to and from class. Between my intense morning workouts, the walking, and the brain energy I put into my studies I am constantly starving.
Hello LUNA Bar! You perfect gluten free snack you! Gobs of protein, fab list of ingredients, lots of nutrients & minerals that I need (especially as a 34 year old trying to keep up with my 19 year old classmates)…seriously what more could I ask for?
I know the rest of you are crazy busy too, especially during this time of year. While out Christmas shopping I bought myself a birthday present. These super cute boots! (FYI, it’s incredibly hard to take pictures of boots while on your feet and without a tripod…lol)
So I’m at the mall with a long list of people to buy for and hunger strikes. 1) For the most part I can’t eat anything at the mall because I’m gluten-free and 2) The few things that are available to me are super unhealthy.
That’s exactly when a Chocolate Cupcake LUNA Bar comes in handy. It’s easy to keep on hand, it’s filling with lots of protein to keep me full, it’s a healthy gluten free snack, and the most obvious: it’s chocolate!
Not a huge fan of chocolate? (I’ve heard these people exist although I’ve never met one…) LUNA Bar has tons of flavors and they’re ALL going gluten free! Just be sure to look for their new packaging with the pink dot on the front that says “Gluten Free” on it.
I’ve literally written this entire post in 6 minutes. Not because I’m careless but because I’ve been studying all day for my organic chemistry exam, I just got my free samples from LUNA Bar which got me all hyped up and excited, and I’m now rushing out the door to pick the kids up from school. Gee, wish I had a quick pick-me-up on-the-go snack….oooh looky there! I do! Thanks LUNA Bar!
Ok, I’m going, for real because I now have 10 minutes to get the kids and it takes 11 minutes to get there!
Want to win a free sample? Check out LUNA Bar’s website, then come back and leave a comment telling me which flavor you’re most excited to try. Remember they’re ALL gluten free now!
