Picky Bars Giveaway!
When I was at a press conference for the Houston Marathon at the end of January, one of the female runners gave a plug to Picky Bars. Stephanie Rothstein came in third place at the Houston Marathon with an unbelievable time under 2:30, 10 minutes faster than her marathon PR. I really liked her running story because she was benched from running last year and couldn’t figure out what was wrong with her body. She realized she had Celiac Disease and cut gluten from her diet. In the meantime of not running, she and Lauren Fleshman grew their Bar business into something marketable. I just really like stories like that.
I contacted Picky Bars to see if they’d let me host a giveaway for them, and here we are.
Picky Bars are the perfect ratio for athletes on the go with the 4:1 Carb to Protein ratio. They are under 200 calories, are gluten and dairy free, and full of “real” ingredients including chocolate chip morsels. Check out their Nutrition page for the details.
There are three flavors right now (two are unnamed and you can name them on their homepage!) and the winner of this giveaway will receive a pack of Picky Bars.
I thought the Picky Bars were really, really delicious. They are a consistency of a Larabar, but thinner and much better tasting. Larabars are so dense and chewy and have very strong nutty flavors and I usually only eat them half at a time. These are a small and mighty bar but would be great when you need fast fuel before or after a workout. And they are perfect for athletes with that ratio all figured out.
You can’t find these in stores, so enter below to try them!
Here’s how to enter:
1. Leave a comment here telling me your favorite way to sweat.
2. Leave a comment on their site suggesting a name for the bars before Wednesday (and leave a separate comment here saying you did so).
This giveaway closes on Thursday and I’ll announce the winner on Friday morning. Good luck!
P.S. The recipe I posted yesterday is a really delicious brownie bite.
