National Celiac Disease Awareness Day Giveaway!

by caroline


Happy National Celiac Disease Awareness Day! I say “happy” because, well, what’s not to be happy about? There is an entire DAY devoted to raising awareness about celiac disease. Woot! For those of you who have this condition, or know someone who does, it is easy to to recognize the importance of this day and every bit of time we have to shout from the rooftops about our cause.

(Did you know there is a National Celiac Disease Awareness Month, too?)

Want to help keep the chatter alive? Consider sending the Celiac Symptoms Checklist (from the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness) to 10 of your friends and family members. Chances are they or someone they know will fit the bill for digging a bit deeper into symptoms that mirror those associated with celiac disease.

How about a few more ideas for par-taying it up on this day? Check out 13 Ways to Celebrate Celiac Disease Awareness Day from the NFCA.

And, hey, we’re having a downright good time here too. In fact, one lucky attendee to this bash gets to take home a bundle of gluten-free LUNA Protein Bars — one of each flavor, including my very favorite, Mint Chocolate Chip!

You might remember when I posted about these bars and their deliciousness a bit back. The stats go a little something like this …

  • LUNA Protein Bars weren’t always gluten-free, but in March 2011 they decided to makes the switch.
  • All of the bars are under 200 calories.
  • They each have 12 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber.
  • They’re about $1.39 at the grocery store!

So, how do ya win, RIGHT?!

All you have to do is post a comment at the bottom of this post about what you love most in a bar (oh, how I love my bars!) and why you want to give LUNA Protein Bars a try. That way, you’ll be entered in a random drawing to get your hands on these babies and one of you will get to take home the tasty prize of five free LUNA Protein Bars!

Make sure your comment is posted by 11:59 p.m. (EST), Wednesday, September 14, 2011 in order to be considered for the drawing.
