WIAW: Chocolate Lovers Unite!

[Did you happen to take the survey I created for all my readers yesterday? I would love to have your feedback! I’ll share the results later this week!]

Folks…this is an especially wonderful Wednesday here on the blog. Not only because it’s WIAW, obviously, but because I have a giveaway that will fulfill your ultimate cravings. Well your cravings for chocolate that is!

But let’s be honest there are not too many people out there who DON’T love chocolate (I can only think of a few in my life!). So if you’re in that minority, I’m sorry. I have nothing to offer you today. BUT, if you happen to be a chocolate lover like myself, then you will be pretty pumped to hear that Larabar is offering up a sample pack of their amazing Jocolat bar flavors for one of my readers!

As if I don’t like larabars enough, their Jocolat bars take deliciousness to a whole new level. They are still raw and no sugar added, but the Jocolat bars taste like a decadent chocolatey treat. Like the best raw, fudgy brownie you’ve ever had! I especially love the chocolate mint and chocolate coffee flavors!

If you haven’t tried these, now is the time to change that. And you have the opportunity below! jocolatbargiveawayUp for grabs is a 6 pack of 3 of Larabar’s Jocolat flavors: mint, coffee, and chocolate! The giveaway will run until Saturday so make sure to get all your entries in before hand!

    I love all Larabars! I just wish they hadn’t stopped shipping to the UK because they are so expensive to buy on Amazon.

    I am so jealous of your abundance of purple sweet potatoes! Honestly, I would rather eat those all day long than any dessert. We never get them over here at all :( If I could eat those, dates, mango, pineapple and bananas, I don’t think I would wish for any other food.

    Chocolate and chili is the way to go. I’ll admit I went a little crazy there in today’s WIAW post but what can I say? I just really like that combination.
    I’m unable to pick that -one- ultimate dessert but it’d definitely have to involve ice cream. My mum’s homemade cinnamon parfait is pretty epic. Too bad it contains eggs.

    YES I am a chocolate lover AND a larabar lover. This post was screaming my name!

    Chocolate and… everything? Chocolate and wine was the first thing to come to mind :) But I love chocolate ON all the things–fruit and nuts, particularly. Chocolate and banana = heaven.

    I LOVE chocolate and Larabars but somehow I haven’t tried the Jocalat bars yet! The coffee one looks really good.

    I spotted those black rice tortillas at the store last weekend and I remembered seeing them in some of your posts. They look really cool!

    I’ve never tried these bars before, but they sound yummy :) and yep I know I sure do love chocolate!! I eat it just about everyday. YUM!

    Hey! I’m sure this will get lost since I’m the last one to comment, but I just wanted to ask you if you’ve tried any new foods lately? I notice a lot of your meals are whole foods (nothing wrong with that) and powerbars/granola bars.
    I know you’re trying to be more in tune with your body, but I think it’s odd that you choose spaghetti squash instead of spaghetti and make protein pancakes instead of regular ones. Again, this is just my perspective, and you have to do what’s right for you…I just know that trying to gain weight on veggies and fruits is really difficult and painful.

    I’m only asking because I sometimes get in food ruts and it’s just easier to eat the same thing / same “formula” for meals instead of cooking something else…and was wondering if maybe you have the same issue?

    Unfortunately, I’m not a huge chocolate fan (I know, I know – I’m weird), but I do like M&Ms – but only if they’re cold, LOL!

      I don’t feel like I’m in too much of a food rut! I get a lot of variety everyday and although I do have my favorites I definitely mix things up too. Sometimes I get hooked on certain foods or combinations for a while but as long as I’m meeting my daily nutrition goals then I feel okay with my choices. Sometimes it’s just easier to make things that you know are convenient and delicious!

    You had me at “Chocolate Lovers..” :)
    Deeeeelish eats! Those crackers and bananas and PB look so good – what kind of crackers are those? And what an awesome giveaway! Thank you for hosting it!
    I am glad I stumbled by thru SITS!
