Murrieta, CA, author Linda J. Amendt’s book on gluten-free breakfasts recently won two awards.
The winners of the CLIF Bar giveaway held in March 2014 were Pam W. of Escondido, Karen B. of New Albany, IN, and Leah S. of Minneapolis. Each one received a box of CLIF bars for posting a comment at the contest page on my blog, http://www.beyondbites.com. Keep watching for the next giveaway, as you might be a winner!
Another winner was Murrieta author Linda J. Amendt, author of “Gluten-Free Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond” (Taunton Press, $19.95, 2013), who was featured in the blog in September 2013. (Read the interview at

Now I’ve got another giveaway for you, this one from CLIF Bars. (Photo courtesy CLIF Bars)
Not to be left out of the chocolate frenzy for Valentine’s Day, the company’s newest bar, Sierra Trail Mix, is the first CLIF Bar flavor to be made with sustainably grown cocoa from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. (Yes, it carries the frog seal on the package.) I’m not saying it’s equivalent to a morsel from See’s or Jer’s — but on the other hand, it’s a lot easier to bring along on a romantic stroll than a two-pound box. ;<)
Each 2.4-ounce energy bar also contains peanuts, organic rolled oats and raisins, among other goodies, and weighs in at 250 calories, 70 from fat. Suggested price is $1.39 per bar.
The CLIF Bar folks are offering three giveaways to readers who post a comment on this beyondbites.blog entry. Add your comment below by March 15, and I’ll choose three at random for a free gift pack of CLIF Bars!

Everyone gets nostalgic this time of year for fall flavors like pumpkin and gingerbread. The folks who make the CLIF Bar aren’t immune from those autumnal cravings, reflected by their seasonal Iced Gingerbread and Spiced Pumpkin Pie energy bars, plus the new Pecan Pie bar. Like all CLIF Bars, Pecan Pie (260 calories, 70 from fat), Iced Gingerbread (250 calories, 50 from fat) and Spiced Pumpkin Pie (240 calories, 40 from fat) are made with 70 percent organic ingredients. They’re a good source of protein and fiber and have 23 vitamins and minerals. Suggested price for each 2.4-ounce bar is $1.39, and CLIF Bar will donate 1 percent of seasonal net sales to Protect Our Winters, a not-for-profit organization fighting against climate change. Clif Bar & Company only sources ingredients that are non-GMO.
