Here's the deal: I really, really want to win Rachelle's Good2Go Bar giveaway. Over compression sleeves and running jewelry, Running Diva shirts and marathon entries, I want to win these bars.
I want to gain weight.
I know I'm an anomaly. Most blogs (and people) are focused on fitness and maintaining or losing weight, but this doesn't apply to me. My entire life I have been a stick figure. I can eat mountains of food and it doesn't go to my thighs, my love handles, or (Heaven forbid!) my breasts. In Junior High there was a rumor going around that I was anorexic.

We all have things we would like to change about ourselves. It's not very fun to be sitting in a theater watching a sick and anorexic looking Bella from Breaking Dawn on screen, feeling horrified at how she looks, and then have someone say that she reminds them of you.

Back to the whole point of this post- Good2Go Bars. Calorie packed, protein packed, nutritious. These seem like an answer to my problem! It's hard to find snacks that are easy and filled with everything you need- and TASTE GOOD. I just wish I could try one before I commit 30 bucks (which in a family of 4 living on
I'm not looking for sympathy or validation, but I am looking for help. PLEASE give me suggestions on healthy, calorie packed, tasty snacks!
