WIN THIS: A deeeelicious bag of PRO OATS!

Whenever I go places, or whenever I do things, I'm always on the lookout for new and exciting products that fit the...well, the fit life. I have a little notebook in my purse and I'm constantly writing things down. Product names, websites, etc. But I also have my camera with me at all times. You just never know when Jason'll do something funny, and you never know when you'll find an awesome something on display. Such was the case a few months ago when I traveled to Chicago. It was a day of sightseeing, and on our way to "the bean," we popped into Chicago's Downtown Farmstand.

LOVE this place. It's full of natural and organic foods both fresh and packaged. A fit lifer's candy store. We looked around rather quickly, only long enough for the bag of oats at right to catch my attention. (You know me, can't get enough oats in my life.) They're PRO OATS, to be specific, and they're different because they've got added protein in the form of a whey isolate. It's a very concentrated, pure form of protein derived entirely from milk. (Interesting fact: we humans have it in our milk, too. Just like cows.) So as you know, protein is an essential part of the fit life. It builds and maintains your muscles, among other things, and although we can get most of our daily protein needs from food alone, some of us like adding protein powders to our diets. (I don't think it's a bad thing, but I also don't think it's a necessary thing. I digress.) The oats—they're delicious. They certainly make an excellent addition to any fit life diet.

And guess what? The people behind this product have agreed to give away a bag to one lucky winner. Oh wait, did I say one? I meant four. Yes, FOUR lucky winners will each receive a bag of PRO OATS in the flavor of their choice! What are the flavors?

They sent me a bag of the Apple Pie version to sample and I can't stop eating it. SO. GOOD. I've taken it to the gym with me twice now, and it keeps me full all morning. One of these days, I'm going to add a dash of almond butter to it. I love me some apples with almond butter!

But that's enough about me, let's talk about you and how YOU (yes, really FOUR of you) can win a bag of PRO OATS! Simply visit their website and read up on all the flavors. Leave a comment on this here post and tell me which one you'd choose. (Be sure to leave your email address or a link to your blog so that I can get in touch with you if you're one of the winners.) Bonus entry if you "like" PRO OATS on Facebook.

And of course, if you "like" Daily Dose or subscribe to my mailing list (if you haven't already), you'll get bonus entries that way, too. Tons of ways to win! And with four winners, the odds are in your favor!

All entries must be received by Friday, January 28, 2011 at midnight EST. The winner will be announced on Sunday, January 30, 2011. (Please note that I will contact the winner if, and only if, I have your email address. Otherwise, you'll just have to stay tuned and contact ME if you're the lucky winner. In which case, if I don't hear from you, I'll be forced to pick someone else! Rules, rules...how boring, but necessary.) G'luck to all my oat-lovin' friends!
