Hi I’m Sara, I’m taking back my life through exercise and healthy eating and using this blog to track my 365 day challenge to myself.  I hope you’ll enjoy what you you read here and PLEASE hold me accountable 🙂 I hope we can inspire and help each other on our journeys.

A little about me:

I’m 27

I live in a suburb north of Chicago

I cannot get enough of sushi/sashimi (I’d pick it over chocolate…but barely)

I love to cook and bake

I’m an aspiring author, I have three books that are “half-finished” on my hard drive :-/

I’m an avid reader, I read at least 7-9 books per month (I love my Kindle)

I’ve had back surgery twice in less than a year (this past year)

I used to hate bananas but I’m learning to love them!

I’m a total Gleek….and a nerd (I play video games and collect comic books)

I’d rather stay in and play board games and have some wine with friends then go to a bar

Feel free to ask any questions in the comments section, I’d love to answer them 🙂

Hi Sara,
I thought you might be interested in a wonderful, healthy (and truly delicious) nutrition bar that is getting rave reviews. Kardea bars are low fat, low carb, reduced sugar, whole grain, natural, and high protein (not to mention zero trans fat, kosher, vegan and high fiber!). I’m not sure if you do product reviews, but if you do, we’d love it if you’d consider Kardea. We are particularly interested in getting our products in front of bloggers with a focus on healthy eating, nutrition and wellness (and from your bio, it looks like you meet all those criteria!).

Kardea was founded by an avid cook and foodie, Rob Leighton, when he was diagnosed with high cholesterol in his late 40s. With a professional background in the food manufacturing business, he wanted to create healthy foods that were tasty and enjoyable to eat. His first products are gourmet wellness bars, which are unusually low calorie and more nutritious than most other energy or “nutrition” bars. Each bar contains 7 grams each of fiber and protein, and 1 gram of heart healthy plant sterols, in only 150 calories. They come in four flavors and have great texture, providing both chew and crunch. More importantly, they are delicious and very satisfying.

We’d be happy to send you a sampler pack if you would like to try (and blog about) our bars. Please provide your mailing address if you are interested.

Thank you!
