The Primal Yogi’s First Birthday & a LARABAR RENOLA Giveaway

One year ago today I hit publish for the very first time on The Primal Yogi. I can’t believe it’s been a whole year! To be honest I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to keep up with blogging but to my surprise I somehow made it work. I guess when you really love something nothing will get in your way to get it done!


I first started blogging to simply share travel stories, recipes, and ways I stay healthy in this busy world. Then in January when I started yoga teacher training (which was only a thought when I first started the blog) The Primal Yogi became a space for me to recap my experience.

The Primal Yogi is still evolving just as my career and life are. The plan is to keep this space for sharing and inspiring my readers through stories of yoga, healthy living, and travel.

Here are some of The Primal Yogi’s most popular posts over the past 365 days. And make sure to scroll down for a birthday giveaway! This giveaway is closed.  Congrats to Giselle over at My Healthy Happy Home for winning the RENOLA giveaway!

In celebration of The Primal Yogi turning one I have an awesome giveaway for all of you! The folks over at LARABAR were kind enough to send me samples of their new gluten-free, grain-free granola called RENOLA (standing for “reinventing granola”).


Granola and cereal are definitely a staple that I miss most since going Primal. For this reason I am constantly looking for an alternative.  So when I learned about RENOLA on Carrots n’ Cake I was super excited.

They sent me three different flavors in these cute and very convenient one serving packets.  Their three flavors are Cocoa Coconut, Berry, and Cinnamon Nut. These were perfect to take to work for breakfast or a snack. I ate the granola in a bowl with almond milk and fruit (blueberries or bananas).

I loved all three flavors and I’m looking forward to buying more.  They are available at your local Target in the cereal aisle!

  1. Happy first blogiversary! It’s incredible how time flies with blogging, right? I hope you’ll keep enjoying it for a long time.
    As for the bars all flavours sound good but right now Cinnamon Nut speaks to me the most. Mmh, autumn = the season for cinnamon.
