It is estimated that 83% of Americans with Celiac disease don’t even know they have it! Find out the facts…someone you love may be suffering from undiagnosed Celiac disease, which left undiagnosed and untreated can lead to any number of other Celiac related issues (infertility, depression, intestinal cancer, thyroid problems, chronic anxiety, delayed growth, osteoporosis, dermatitis herpetiformis, neurological disorders, chronic migraines, etc.). The good news is Celiac disease is 100% treatable with a strict gluten-free diet. Learn the facts. You can find out more information about Celiac disease at The Foundation for Celiac Awareness @ http://www.CeliacCentral.org

For those of you who haven’t heard of Picky Bars, they are: gluten and dairy free energy bars, made with real food balanced for sport. Created and owned by three professional athletes—Lauren Fleshman, Jesse Thomas, and Stephanie Bruce—these bars have the ideal 4:1 carb to protein recovery ratio, and a 15/25/60 macronutrient profile for sustained energy before exercise. They basically win all categories: taste, versatility, performance, and real food ingredients you will actually recognize. It’s freaking science, dude.
Right now they are running a campaign on IndieGogo.com to raise money for more flavors, and here's how you can help be a part of it all:
While people love our bars, we have no outside investment so we’re still small and growing at a natural pace. This is great because we control quality and keep our business personal, but it limits our ability to expand and introduce new flavors. We need your help, because each new flavor is a HUGE INVESTMENT in new packaging, tooling, upfront ingredient cost, and multiple production test runs to perfect the recipe on a larger scale. It's one thing when Lauren perfects a small test batch in her home kitchen, and a whole different obstacle to maintain that taste and quality when we go into production runs. If you help us reach our goal, we get to bring our new flavor to market right away, and you get to eat them before everyone else. Plus, we have sweet rewards, like special edition Runner’s High shirts. Check em out!

But hurry, campaign ends June 2nd, 2013!!!
