Luna Protein and a GIVEAWAY!!!

Thank you to LUNA Protein for providing me a LUNA Protein sample pack to review. The opinions I've expressed here are solely my own and represent my honest viewpoint.

It's 9:20am.  We're flying out the door to get my oldest to preschool.  As I get both kids buckled in I run through the checklist in my head.  Did I make him go potty before walked out the door?  Check.  Did I bring his backpack?  Check.  Did I put his homework back in the backpack?  Check.  Did I change my youngest boy's diaper when he announced it was full?  Check.  Wow, I even got in a shower!  Things are feeling pretty good.....until I realize that while I was busy doing all those things I ignored my roaring stomach.  I forgot my own breakfast and now I'm feeling it.

I'm guessing you can relate.  When you have little ones and you're on the go it's usually your own needs that get forgotten.  Well, today I have a nice solution for the rumbling tummy on the go.  Enter Luna Protein.

I was really excited to review these bars.  They come in Mint Chocolate Chip, Cookie Dough, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate Cherry Almond, and Chocolate.  My favorite was the Chocolate Peanut Butter, but I actually really liked all of the others as well.

So, here's what I liked. 

- The convenience.  I can throw one in my purse and it's there when I need it.

- The flavors and taste.  I felt like I was eating a candy bar but MINUS the nasty feeling you get after eating a candy bar.  For tasting as good as they do, they have less sugar than I thought they would and they are under 200 calories.

- They were amazingly filling (due to the protein).  This is great because I must admit that I am a beast when I'm hungry.  Really.

- They are gluten free (which is a definite bonus for a lot of people).

Here's what I didn't like:

- There's still a tinge of that "protein bar" taste.  If you've ever tried a protein bar you know what I'm talking about.  However, the Luna Protein hid that protein taste far better than any other protein bar I've ever tasted.

- I had to fight my boys for them and when I say boys I mean my husband too.  Don't worry.  I won.

So, if you find yourself in the situation I described above, try a Luna Protein bar.  You'll feel like you indulged, but you'll have the benefit of feeling full and not guilty :)

AND, Luna is giving away a Luna Protein pack with a special gift to 5 of you!  Enter the giveaway by leaving a comment here.  Drawing ends in one week (Sept 2nd) and the winners will be announced then.  Please make sure you either leave you email address in your comment OR have it linked to your profile so I can contact you if you win.
