Mother's Day Give-Away!

I'm hosting a Mother's Day give-away in honor of all the healthy Mommies out there! Thanks to my friends at Balance Bar, I'll be giving away a lovely Mother's Day gift package to one lucky winner. The only requirement is that you are (or someone you know is) a healthfully inspirational Mom. Visit my Facebook page to enter!

Yes, that's me!
I'm positive my mom inspired my love of food and dedication to health. And I'm ever-thankful! She reminisces that I wasn't given a cookie until I was two, drank watered-down apple juice, and noshed on caviar and Brie as a youngster. (No wonder I like fine food!) I remember baking banana nut bread from my very first cookbook before I was 10 years old and making homemade (healthier) frozen popsicles in the freezer. Healthy family meals and exercise were a routine part of my family's life for as long as I can remember. Yep. Moms are inspiring.

Since the foundation of good nutrition habits is built when we're young, Moms can really make a difference for years to come. I want to know how you inspire your family (or how someone you know inspires theirs) to make healthy food an important part of their lifestyles. It can be as simple as planning meals on a calendar for the week, preparing fruits and vegetables for quick-grabs in the fridge, or stimulating conversation at the dinner table. The more creative, the better. Share the health by sharing your inspiring ways with others!

The most health-inspiring Mom will win this prize from Balance Bar, the makers of nimble (read my review on nimble bars):

  • 24 nimble bars (12 peanut butter and 12 yogurt orange swirl) tied with a satin ribbon
  • a glittery mini pouch embellished with a wildflower applique
  • a nimble headband
  • a Mother's Day poem on premium cardstock
It's a prize valued at $54.98!

Visit my Facebook page to enter the contest. I'll select one person who shares the most inspiring healthful idea as my winner! The winning idea will also be shared on my blog on Mother's Day. Entries are due by midnight on April 29.
