Balance Bar Spring Cleaning Giveaway (3/31) #SpringIntoBalance

Press Sample

I am so over Winter. Over. It. Here in the Midwest, the weather pattern has much resembled the swing of a pendulum in the last week, with a 70 degree afternoon one day followed by a 28 degree morning the very next day.  The ongoing joke around here, which ISN’T funny by the way, is that if you don’t like the weather you should just wait five minutes.  Oi vey.  I am so ready for Spring, and all that it entails.  Yes, even Spring Cleaning!

Balance Bar Spring

This year, I am going to celebrate the change in season by starting my spring cleaning in my pantry, thanks to tips for a pantry makeover from dietician Sharon Richter, spokesperson for Balance Bar.  It’s time to clean up some of our bad eating habits and introducing some healthier habits – including healthy snacking!

Here are some of Sharon’s tips for cleaning your pantry…

    1. Empty everything from the pantry.  Take it all off the shelves.  Make a mess, if necessary, and see what’s hiding in there.
    2. Throw away everything that has expired or has been open for a while.  If you’re not going to use it, get rid of it.
    3. Organize your pantry by category.  Snacks, nuts and dried fruit, cereals, oils/dressings, etc.
    4. Read. The. Labels.  If it contains hydrogenated oil, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) or MSG, it’s not a good idea to keep it.
    5. Keep portion controlled snack in the front, within reach, and at eye level.  Be sure to stock up on Balance Bars.

If you enjoy a good Twitter party, be sure to join the Balance Bar Twitter Chat where @BalanceBar and @TheRichterReco will be hosting a live, one-hour Twitter chat using the hashtag #SpringIntoBalance on Thursday, March 20at 3:00 PM ET.

  1. I am always on the lookout for things I can take with me on the go like this. They sound awesome.

  2. Balance Bars are such a great snack!! plus they taste great.

    and i’m not even talking about spring. darn groundhog !

  3. I have never tried a Balance Bar, but heard that they are a great snack. They’re great to grab right when you leave so you’re sure to have a healthy snack when you need it.

  4. I need to clean out our pantry too! haha I’ll try to be at the twitter party!

  5. Dark Chocolate Coconut Balance bars? Sounds more like a candy bar instead of a healthy go-to snack. I am definitely going to have to check out the Balance Bar section at my local store and see what other delicious flavors they have to offer!

  6. I am so over winter too! We just had more snow this morning and and are supposed to get a few inches again tonight!

  7. I feel like I’ve been spring cleaning for over a month now. I’ve been trying to get rid of a bag a day. Great giveaway.

  8. These bars are so great for on the go! I need to stock up on some.

  9. I need to get my spring cleaning into gear! Usually I start with cleaning out closets and then going on to the kitchen. It’s so hard to get it done now with a toddler underfoot!

  10. We actually have quite a few Balance bars sitting in my pantry right now – LOVE THEM.A
    Anyway, I actually start in my kitchen and make my way to the living room and then the rest of the rooms in the house .I am very weird about making sure my kitchen and living room are clean every night before I go to bed, so it’s the easiest place to start. I am actually excited to get rid of a bunch of stuff this year and have less CLUTTER – that’s part of my New Spring Resolution!

  11. Spring is here? What? 🙂 I am looking forward to my spring cleaning esp if that means I can see the sun!!

  12. Angela S says:

    My two nieces love Balance Bars. They like to take them to tumbling class.

  13. I need to decrapify my house for sure. I am ready for some spring cleaning. And maybe get myself some balance bars to spring clean myself. 🙂

  14. I have started spring cleaning. I started a couple of weeks ago and am going from room to room so I don’t have to do it all at once. Less annoying that way 🙂

  15. Ugh, spring cleaning. I think I’d rather eat a balance bar. lol

  16. I think Balance Bars are so delicious! And the white tea and bamboo hand soap sounds like it would smell amazing!

  17. We don’t have a pantry (unfortunately) but I do need to clear out all the shelves and clean them. There are probably a few things out of date that need to be tossed too!

  18. I really need to start spring cleaning. I did get to my pantry and have it sort of nice LOL. These would be great for me to take to the gym.

  19. I like to clean out my pantry regularly. It is amazing what you forget about
