The *ONE BITE* Rule and Lara Bar Giveaway! CONTEST CLOSED!

The *One-bite* Rule and Lara Bar Giveaway!

I was a picky eater as a child and teen – even now to some extent – and it kept me from enjoying many new foods, I’m sure.

When my daughter was a toddler and beginning to eat 'grown-up' foods, my husband and I decided to try to get her taste a bit of everything.
We called it the “One Bite” rule.

She had to take at least one bite of everything – and so did we!

Yep… it led to some very interesting conversation at out table but it’s been very successful! I’ve come to love squash, yogurt, cauliflower, and Japanese food. My daughter, at 17, still takes the one bite rule seriously and has discovered many new foods that she likes, too.

One of the things I’d been hesitant to try were energy / power bars. I just imagined that they tasted like cardboard.

Ah, but they don’t!

I tried the Luna Bars and loved them, ditto the Soy Joy bars. Just recently, I was given several Lara Bars to try and they are marvelous!

Lara Bars were developed by Lara Merriken in 2003 after hiking in the Rockies .

*From The website:

“LÄRABAR is a delicious blend of simplicity; just fruit and nuts.
Each flavor contains no more than seven ingredients and there
is no added sugar, which is relatively unheard of in the energy
bar market.

LÄRABAR is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, vegan
and kosher.

LÄRABAR is not only wholesome, but also delicious.

The wonderful folks at LARA Bar have provided me with a sampling of four bars to give to one lucky reader!

Here's how to enter!

Please visit Lara bar at: and then come back here and tell me how many flavours LARA Bar offers.
For an extra entry, tell me four flavours that you'd like to try if you win!

This contest will run from Monday, January 4th thru Sunday January 10th. Winner announced on Monday, January 11, 2010.

Be sure to leave a VALID email address in the body of your post or in your profile! If I can't email you, then you can't win!
