12 Days of Healthy Holiday Giveaways starts today! First up...

A $30 Protein Bar Gift Certificate! First, here's a little more info on the 12 days of HHG.  For the next 12 days I will be posting a giveaway to kick off the first annual 12 Days of Healthy Holiday Giveaways.  Each day for the next twelve weekdays a featured item(s) will be posted.  All of these items are items that I personally love or that I thought were too cool I couldn't pass up.  Each giveaway will be posted by 11 AM and the competition will close at 5pm. From there, you will have a chance to win that item.  Note: you can enter each day, even if you've won one of the other giveaways.  Each day the rules will be a little different so be sure to read all the way through.  The holidays are around the corner. You can try to snag these giveaways for yourself or for someone special in your life.

Today's giveaway is from Protein Bar (follow them on twitter for updates, contests, etc.), one of my favorite healthy eating spots.  I had the pleasure of meeting Matt Matros, founder of Protein Bar, a few years ago.  At the time I thought the first location was a great concept and it fit right in with what I try and promote-a healthy lifestyle.  I'm excited the business has continued to grow.  I love that they post their calories right on the menu.  It helps make eating decisions much easier.  Someone is going to win a $30 gift certificate to this tasty place.  These days are busy and eating well is hard when you're constantly on the go.  I'm hoping this giveaway will help someone stay on track, or start getting on track.  Protein Bar has five locations (two more in the works) throughout the city to make it easily accessible on your break.  Stop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

My favorite thing on the menu is the Southwest Salad! What's yours? All you have to do today is comment on this post and tell me what your favorite thing on the menu is.  If you haven't been there yet, what item on the menu looks so tasty you can't wait to try it? Post in the comments section.  At 5pm I will close the contest, put everyone's name in a hat, and have a non partial party pull a name.  Someone has to win so why not enter? It could be you! Be sure to tell your friends about the giveaway as well.  The more people enter each day the bigger the prizes will be at the end.

Have a fun and fit day, Chicago!

All giveaways have been donated by the company.

    I am obsessed with their brownies! 11 grams of protein, no wheat flour and only around 300 calories and the best, most decadent I have ever had in my LIFE.

  • I'm a big fan of the BBQ Bar-rito, only I order mine with tofu.

  • My favorite item is the Spinach & Pesto Bowl - soooo good.

  • I have not yet been to protein bar, but I'm excited to try any of their vegan options - the chili, salad and bar-rito!
