Healthy Bites GIVEAWAY!

I’m SO EXCITED about this Friday giveaway, not only because I haven’t done one in forever, but because it is for the incredible blogger, wife, athlete, and close friend Lindsay Cotter and her business Healthy Bites!

Lindsay and I met over a year ago and she has been so supportive both personally and professionally. She’s an amazing woman! 🙂 I reached out to her a couple of months ago about purchasing some Healthy Bites to try out before doing this giveaway and she sent me a variety of all the flavors below. I honestly looked at them and thought “those little things are going to give me energy?” Since I drastically increased my endurance training this summer, I needed to learn what, when, and how to fuel my body. On runs or rides, I typically eat 3 of these and they are AWESOME! These little treats pack so much flavor and energy, I couldn’t believe it. Enough blabbing…read about them below and ENTER!!!!!

Healthy Bites is a company dedicated to providing healthy snack and fuel options for all people. It was started by myself (Lindsay Cotter) and my husband (James Cotter).  I am a certified Nutrition Manager and Fitness Consultant and my husband James is a professional triathlete. In an effort to help James have good pre and post recovery snacks I started making him healthy bites. Realizing, that I was onto something I enlisted my friends and colleagues to help me expand my idea into a small business.  All of us worked hard to create different flavors and break down nutrition for each Healthy Bite. James and I are grateful for the hard work and direction we received from our friends and family. They are our best supporters! Now about our Healthy Bites……..

We’ve created 4 standard flavors: Apple Cinnamon, Apricot Fig, Chocolate or Vanilla Whey Protein, and Cookie Dough. Each flavor is unique in its taste and function. All are made with mostly all-natural, gluten-free and organic ingredients. The mission is to offer the most minimally processed bites proving to people that eating healthy can taste really good while still being really good for you. Each box comes packaged with the ingredients and nutritional information so that every customer knows exactly what is going into their bodies.

Functions of the Bites
