  14. Hi Kara, I just found your blog through Dietitians on the Blog FB group. The recipes from your ebook look delicious and filling. I especially look forward to trying the lemon lavender oat scones. What a refreshing and energizing way to start your day!

    I’ve dabbled in the past with yoga and remember that when I was practicing vinyasa yoga and prenatal yoga, I felt so in tune with my body and mind. Yoga and meditation is something I want to get back into doing for my self-care (instead of binge-watching Netflix). Are you a morning or evening yoga person?

    This is my first time entering a giveaway. I would love to win because I love trying new foods. I’ve heard great things about the Kind bars! Plus, that bag is so fun. I can imagine myself carrying it around the Farmer’s Market singing to myself lol.

    Looking forward to exploring your blog more, thank you!

    • Hi Rachel – so glad you found my blog! I do both yoga and Netflix bingeing :). I tend to be an evening yoga person. I love taking a yoga class at the end of a work day to decompress and officially turn work off. Thanks for entering the giveaway! So nice to connect 🙂

  15. I recently discovered that I have both a wheat and milk allergy. I am looking for ideas on foods that will fit my new lifestyle change. Trying new products is important to me.
