A Beautiful Mess (+ GIVE AWAY!)

A beautiful mess = today’s lunch πŸ™‚

It’s it gorgeous? πŸ˜‰ I had a raspberry Chobani, blackberries, apple pieces ~ 1.5 tablespoons of Bear Naked granola, some leftover crumbs of a breakfast cookie and a crushed up Raw Crunch Bar.

Then, it turned into a beautiful pink mess..

I am so full! I’m not a nutritionist, but I think this was an overall healthy meal, no?

Give Away!

So last week the lovely people at Raw Crunch sent me some of their fabulous bars. I was so pumped when I received this package in mail πŸ™‚

I’ll admit – I am a bar freak. But sometimes the nutrition facts ofΒ “healthy” bars freak me out. So not the case with Raw Crunch bars. I love how their packaging says “no artificial nothin’” πŸ™‚Β Click here to see their short and healthy ingredients list.

I think these bars are the perfect marriage of sweet and salty. And for only 150 calories, they’re a perfect mid-day or mid-afternoon snack. Or, they make a perfect addition to an afternoon yogurt bowl πŸ˜‰

Okay, okay! I don’t want to keep all this goodness to myself – I want to share it with you! I have a full box of mixed flavors – blueberry, goji berry, cranberry and chocolate – that I want to send to a lucky reader!!

Here’s what ya can do to enter. Please leave a separate comment for each choice.

1. Leave a comment telling me why you’d like to have some Raw Crunch bars sent to your doorstep

2. Tweet about this give away “Colleen is giving away Raw Crunch BarsΒ http://wp.me/p1ioJf-uZ” or something like that.

3. Help me become Twitter official with you! πŸ™‚

I will randomly pick a winner on Thursday morning πŸ™‚ Trust me, you want to enter. These babies are scrumptious!

  81. Amanda Smith says:

    Hello there. I just found your blog and I love it! I also am a fellow bar freak. I am a culinary student on her internship right now, and I always find myself snacking on unhealthy food at work. So I bring things like larabars, clif bars and other healthy, filling snacks. However, I am getting bored with the flavors. I would love to try some new Raw Crunch Bars and see where they fit into my busy work schedule at the restaurant!!

  82. I would love me some Crunch Bars because I am a bar addict. I keep my desk at work mass stocked because you never know when I will be here til the wee hours of the morning and do not want to risk the chance of going hungry (read: cranky!) and so bars save my life and career πŸ™‚ I am also a health nut, so don’t like eating anything with any hard to pronounce artificial ingredients, and have tried every granola bar under the sun, but never these!

  83. Millie says:

    I would love to try these! When I look at most protein/”nutrition” bars, there are so many ingredients, half of which I can’t even begin to pronounce. I’d love to try something that’s healthy and that lets me know exactly what I’m fueling my body with!

  84. britney says:

    I would love to have the Raw Crunch bars on my doorstep because I am a huge snacker and am always hungry!
