KIND Bar Giveaway

Hey! Today is shaping up to be even worse weather-wise than I thought it’d be! I went to run some errands before lunch and it was already raining and so cold outside so I decided the errands can wait. 🙂 I got a pair of work pants hemmed that I need to pick up and I really want them, but they’ll be there tomorrow. Sigh.

It was a coworkers birthday today, so they brought in a plethora of bagels and different kinds of cream cheese to celebrate. I loove bagels, but had already had breakfast and wasn’t hungry, just wanted one because they were in front of me, and because I love honey walnut cream cheese. But, I brought out my own snack while others were munching on the bagels so I could resists:

Watermelon! It was so juicy and delicious and was the reason I could stay away from the bagels (which are ALMOST gone.. someone please take the last few!!) I hate having tempting stuff in the office kitchen all day long because I’m going in there frequently to get water, grab my snacks, lunch, etc.

Anyways, lunch was easy peasy but so delicious.. leftover Indian Food!

~1 cup of basamati rice, a little bit of chickpeas with potatoes, and the rest of the spicy eggplant. I also had 1/2 a piece of garlic naan on the side.. sooooo good. They give a salad with the delivery that I never eat on the day of, and it is always less than stellar the next day (or two days, in this case).

I doused it in the Raita which helped a bit, but I threw out most of hte cucumber pieces which were getting clearish (ick) and did not finish the salad. The eggplant, chickpeas, rice, and naan were incredible though. We ended up getting 4 meals out of the Indian food from Sunday night, which was under $30! Good deal.

And now, for my second blog giveaway… KIND Bars!

I was sent 4 of these bars to sample from the company, and had seen them in stores before, but never tried them. They are SO good, and my new favorite type of bar. They are full of nuts and fruit and all of the flavors I’ve tried were sooo good, I can’t even pick a favorite. KIND Bars has been kind enough (heh) to offer to send one of my readers some KIND Bars to sample! If you haven’t tried these yet, this is an awesome chance to try them for free, and if you’ve already tried them you’ll know how good they are, and who wouldn’t want free KIND bars!? There are 4 ways to enter, but #1 is mandatory:

  1. Browse the Kind Bar website and tell me which flavor you’d like to try, or if you’ve already had them, tell me your favorite one!
  2. Add me on Google Reader or subscribe to Beth’s Journey by email and leave a comment saying you have. If you’re already a subscriber, just leave a comment saying so!
  3. Add me to your blogroll and leave a comment saying you have. If I’m already on there, just leave a comment letting me know!
  4. If you have a blog, mention this giveaway and link to it from your blog for an extra entry!

This contest will end 5pm EST on Friday, May 14th. Good luck!!

    I am already a subscriber and you are on my blogroll 🙂

    Are they related at all to Alicia Silverstein’s Kind Diet?

  6. Hey there,
    so great to have a giveaway for healthy bars. I just had a look around their site and I would proably decide on the strawberry nut delight which is unfortunately out of stock.
    My mom would love the Mango Macadamia so I would get one of those for her too 😉
    But then pretty much all of the flavors sound really good.
    I do have you added to my google reader since quite some time already.

  7. walnut and date! WOW HOW GREAT ARE ALL THE FLAVORS THO! oh and are canadians eligible to enter….?

  8. and already subscribed :):):)

  9. I used to “follow blog” function so I think I subscribed right?

  11. Almond & Cashew is definitely my favorite flavor!

  12. I want to try the walnut and date – that sounds amazing!

  15. Almond and coconut??!!?? Yes please! I’ve never tried KIND bars… they look yummy!

  16. And I’ve definitely got you in my google reader! 🙂

  17. Hi, Im a new subscriber via Google Reader, and just in time for a give away too. I love give aways, even if I don’t win, I always like trying. I would love to try, and I really have no business, because it sounds too good to be true, but moderation is key, right? Anyway, I would love to try Almond & Coconut if given the chance, because those 2 combinations totally rock, and usually keep me smiling!

  18. I’m already a subscriber and have never tried KIND before! The Almond and Coconut sounds delish!

  19. I’ve tried the Almond and Apricot (it was delicious!) and I would love to try the Almond and Coconut! Thanks for stopping by my blog, too! 🙂

  21. One plus side to being gluten free is that I absolutely can’t eat office treats. It’s easier to stay away when you know you’ll get violently ill! Guess that’s that silver lining thing! lol!

    I love KIND bars! They are a lifesaver when I get stuck somewhere with nothing gluten free in sight! Cranberry & Almond are my favs!

  22. I’m not interested in a KIND bar–not with my diet plan (but you’re on my blogroll!); but I wanted to send you sincere congratulations for avoiding the temptation of the bagels. Hardcore; awesome!

  23. “honey walnut cream cheese”??? Oh my – now that would be tempting!!!!

  24. The fruit and nut delight sounds yummy. The nutrition info is great too for my diet plan.

  25. I’ve got you on my google reader! Tempting free bagels especially with honey walnut cream cheese….how you did it I don’t know. Way to go!

  26. I’ve never had a Kind bar, but I’ve heard wonderful things about them! I’d especially like to try the Almond Coconut (two of my favorite flavors, YUM!) and the Almond Apricot. 😀

  27. My favorite are almond coconut as well – two of my favorite things, and they are almost like a dessert 🙂
    I subscribe, because I love your blog, and am working on adding you to my blogroll!

  30. Shoot! I know exactly how you feel when there’s stinkin’ temptation in the staff kitchen/staff room. Problem over here is they are always donuts, Costco cupcakes, or leftover cake 😦 I used to always grab some, then I started to grab just a “bite or so” thinking I totally deserved it from working out, and now I just don’t look at it. If it were good cake, maybe I’d eat it. But leftover store bought from last nights party? Come on!

  31. & I love you + would love me some Kind Bars!! I pick fruit + nut & some Nut Delight, for real!
