Hello friends! Happy Monday! It is my last Monday as a 36 year old what better way to start off a week with a giveaway of one of my new favorite snacks!
But before we get there, I wanted to share with you another edition of my San Diego trip, one of the most important parts, the eats! All my adventures at the zoo, workouts, Blogfest, and Les Mills live had to be fueled somehow and they were fueled well!
Thankfully one of the great things about Blogfest are the sponsors we have and the wonderful food and snacks they provide! We were provided food by The Almond Board of California (hello all the almonds), General Mills (always a fun breakfast), The National Dairy Council (lovely lunch), LaCroix (amazing happy hour), as well as several companies who added goodies to our swag bag (Great Lakes Gelatin, Jimmy Bar and Be Better). (not all products are pictured at this time)
I also had a few meals outside the conference with different groups of my fab friends! Each place we went to was great with the exception of one. The restaurant had a cool vibe, but sadly I was allergic to most of the items on the menu, and they could only alter 3 items total to accommodate my allergies. So for dinner one night I ended up forking over $32 for a bowl of veggies and quinoa! Other than that experience, I had delicious food, and even more needed, conversation with my fab friends!
There were many fantastic meals but my mind keeps going back to some of the snacks we were provided, specifically from Be Better! To be honest, a lot of bars out there these days don’t taste great to me or sit well with my tummy. I was a little nervous to try yet another bar, but these were so delicious, and no tummy issues at all! If you have any dietary restrictions, they have options that have no dairy, no gluten, no soy and no artificial preservatives! They are full of protein (from 10-16 grams of protein per bar).
They had a booth set up in the back of the room and a beautiful layout of their products and LOTS of chances to try out their snacks! My fav flavor is the caramel & almond in dark chocolate, but I also really did enjoy all the flavors I was able to try! They really helped me to fuel my workouts and recover after some of the intense days of activity I had.
Tell me, what will you do this week to be better?
My goal is to enjoy my birthday no matter what is going on in my life right now!
May you be filled with joy and health!
