I Lost My Heart to Heart Thrive


A big delicious thanks to the folks over at The Healthy Baking Company for sending me a big box of Heart Thrives!!!  I get siked about getting anything (other than bills) in the mail – but a box full of this stuff made me jump up and down and clap my hands way longer than necessary!  I don’t normally go for “energy bars’ because they’re usually full of ingredients I can’t pronounce and sugar I don’t want to eat.  This isn’t the case with Heart Thrive – they’re made with whole grains, dried fruit, and sweetened with brown rice syrup.  You can learn more about their nutrition stats here. They come in seven flavors: Apple, Apricot, Date, Cranberry, Poppy, Raisin, and Chocolate Chip.  My favorites are the Apricot and Cranberry – the chunks of dried fruit are excellent.  I love the Chocolate Chip warmed up in the microwave with some vanilla ice cream for a really good (relatively healthy) dessert.


So I ran my first 10K yesterday morning, and my breakfast beforehand was two Cranberry Heart Thrives.  I’m proud to say I finished 9th in my age group, so it should be known that these are great pre-race fuel!  I usually get these at a local health food store – so you can probably find them somewhere near you or you can order ’em online.

      I was so surprised my ‘get free stuff’ thing worked! I figure if they get more business from my blog, it all works out! I’ve eaten most of these puppies, but if you want a pack of the Poppy flavor, I can hook a girl up.
