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.
Staying energized is a top priority.
As woman/mom/business owner I'm often pulled in several directions at once. Trying to give my best to so many people and things can leave me well, depleted and distracted. Some days, I'll look at the clock and think oh dear, how did it get to be 3pm and no wonder I am starving.
Moms that are better planners most likely have figured out ways to fit meals into a regular game plan. This multi-tasking mama, needs a little help. That's where LUNAcomes in. I consider it my "fast food." No, it's not calorie and fat packed junk, it's literally food I can eat on the go to rev me up for my next dash to the schools, business meetings or training sessions for the New York Marathon.
Case in point: Today I needed to get a 4-mile training run in. I ate granola and Greek yogurt before school drop off. Then I dashed to a NBCuniversal breakfast (didn't eat), from there I worked on my laptop at Starbucks (tea no food) and then I grabbed a bite at noon with Danielle (ExtraordinaryMommy.com) while she was on her press trip. Errands and more work got me back home at 5pm. I had to get right on the road, but I needed a boost. I grabbed the Mint Chocolate LUNA (my favorite flavor) and was ready to run in minutes.
My choice is the LUNA Protein Bar--a gluten free high protein bar for women. Coming in under 200 calories, this bar give me 12 grams of soy and whey protein and 3 grams of fiber. It feeds my cravings and jumpstarts my energy.
A quick bite is all I need to carry me over to my next fueling. Since I've been training and need more calories than ever, I have tried an array of energy bars. LUNA's got a superb taste. No chalkiness or glueiness. It's like a rich candy bar, but better for you. But don't take my word for it. We've got a chance for you to win your own.
