The Bottle Bar and Their Support

Seems a bit strange to see a post entitled “The Bottle Bar” on a site that promotes health, fitness and good nutrition.  But don’t judge a book by it’s cover.  The Bottle Bar is one of the craftiest ideas to come to Chico and has no negative connotation to it at all!  What you put in your “bottle” is your decision…but it better be gluten free and low...

The scale can be a helpful tool in achieving one’s goals, charting progress, and keeping people accountable for their...
