Kickin’ Off The New Year with Breakfast and a Giveaway

Happy New Year! Even though I don’t make new year’s resolutions, I do enjoy the fresh start of the new year, getting back on track with healthy eating and back to my pre-holiday exercise routine.

Even as committed to my healthy routine as I am, I still get busy and often need a quick on-the-go breakfast option. Two of my favorites are Bearded Brothers bars and Straw Propeller’s oatmeal cups.  Both are handy for mornings when I don’t have enough time to cook breakfast and also when I’m traveling.  Both of these are in my travel kit right now, ready to hit the road!

The Bearded Brothers bars are handmade in Austin, Texas from 100% organic ingredients, gluten-free and mostly raw.  I’m a big fan of their Mighty Maca Chocolate bar.  I’ve also tried their Colossal Coconut Mango and Fabulous Ginger Peach bars, all delicious and the perfect burst of energy I need from a bar.  The bars are great on their own, but I’m also a fan of their packaging.  Each bar comes in a resealable pouch, which is great for mornings when I eat part of a bar and stick the rest in my bag for later.

Straw Propeller Gourmet Foods offers 3 varieties of gluten-free oatmeal cups: Wholly Oats, Apple Crisp and Fruit & Nuts.  My favorite is the Fruit & Nuts, which has cherries, raisins, blueberries, almonds and walnuts.  I like the use of all-natural ingredients in a flavored oatmeal that is gluten-free and comes in a portable container.  No more skipping breakfast excuses for me!

And here’s the great news!  Courtesy of Bearded Brothers and Straw Propeller, I’ve got goodies to give away.  One winner will receive two Bearded Brothers bars and two additional winners will each receive a case of 12 gluten-free oatmeal cups from Straw Propeller.  What a great way to start the new year.

Enter below using Rafflecopter.  Winners will be chosen on January 8th, 2013.  Good luck!

    Sounds DELISH! I am 4 months into Paleo/ Gluten-Free for the whole family and struggling a bit with quick breakfast options. These just might do the trick. I I would try the Fruit & Nuts first.

    I think both of those are things I want in my traveling bag when I’m away from home! That Mighty Maca Chocolate sounds right up my alley, too!

    They sound great. Have not seen them in Joplin yet but I will keep a look out for them. Thanks for sharing Johnna!
