Our homes are full of things that were once useful, but no longer serve a purpose — unworn clothing, obsolete electronics, items that would be better off in someone else’s hands. This week, we’re letting those things go, simplifying our spaces by making a concrete (and final) decision: Use it or give it away.
Each week a special sponsor will help us to make this challenge a little more meaningful. This weeks lifestyle challenge is brought to you by our good friends over at Mammoth Bar. Here’s a little something about this amazing company…
We started Mammoth Bar with the unwavering belief that our health should never have to surrender to the speed and convenience of the modern world. Each Mammoth Bar we make is created with this battle cry in mind. We chose the woolly mammoth to represent our brand because we doubt this legendary creature was doing much surrendering back in the day, and we tend to like that attitude.
We (co-founders Mike and Anthony) originally met while playing football in Southern California. After college, we reconnected in the Bay Area and not long after launched Mammoth Bar. Not only do we share the same birthday, but we also share a passion for healthy living. We are both ardent followers of the Paleo diet (minus the occasional beer) and have an affinity for high-quality food products that naturally fuel a high-energy lifestyle.
After searching for a portable snack that met the high standards of the Paleo diet, we soon realized that our options were limited. It was either a gluten-laced bomb, sugar-loaded dessert, or only slightly better, a “healthy” nut bar that tasted like cardboard – seriously. This was the impetus for starting Mammoth Bar – a belief that people have a right to demand more from the products that they consume.
Mammoth Bar will be here on Tuesday, May 19th, in the afternoon to give out samples of these amazing bars! All of their flavors are amazing. Lauren and my favorite one is the macadamia nut. It’s very very tasty!
One lucky player this week will win something nutritious and delicious from the very handsome guys at Mammoth Bar. Play to win!
