LUNA HQ Trip & a Giveaway!

I’m giving away a box of LUNA Protein Mint Chocolate Chip + LUNA Protein Cookie Dough to one lucky reader!

But first, I want to share about my lovely trip to the LUNA Bar and Clif Bar HQ this past summer…

Back in June, I had the privilege to fly to one of my favorite cities in the world (San Francisco) and visit the LUNA Bar headquarters. I tell you what … LUNA is a wonderful company. I love their products, people and company culture. They are awesome! View my trip through my Instagram pictures below.

Welcome to Clif Bar and LUNA headquarters in Berkeley, California

Lunch was catered by their company kitchen. It was awesome, and of course gluten-free and dairy-free.

A look inside their gym, they have a rock climbing wall. How awesome is that?

Grab a snack, anytime.

I’m always down for a good cup of coffee.

Road trip to St. Helena, California to visit the Clif Family Winery. I bet you didn’t know they make wine, did you? Great wine too!

 Last day LUNA yoga class … refreshing!

 Overall, my experience visiting the LUNA headquarters was wonderful. I learned many exciting things about their company and can’t wait to follow along their journey as they continue to grow. If you haven’t had a chance to try the Clif Family Winery wines, nut mixes or olive oil, do yourself a favor and buy them! Great products, from great people.

Since my background is in nutrition, I found their in-house (Tara DelloIacono Thies) dietitian’s stance on the Power of Positive Snacking very interesting. Check out the LUNA website to learn more. Also, make sure and check out some other things that make LUNA special – like Team Luna Chix, their causes they support, and LUNAfest short films.


All of the LUNA protein flavors are gluten-free and I’m giving away 1 box of LUNA Protein Cookie Dough and LUNA Protein Mint Chocolate Chip to one lucky reader! These happen to be two of my favorite flavors and I always have one in my purse.
