New Giveaway – Delicious Healthy Chips & Oatmeal Bars from Corazonas!

Happy Saturday everyone! I’m very excited to announce my latest giveaway courtesy of Corazonas – a great company that makes delicious snacks infused with cholesterol-lowering plant sterols (read more about the benefits of plant sterols here). But first – I have to announce the winners of my HSN giveaway – congratulations to…

Our Grand Prize Winner – Amy!

Our runners up -Debbie, Carol and The Soul Searching Vegan!

Amy – you’ll win $40 in gift cards for HSN, and Debbie, Carol and The Soul Searching Vegan – you’ll receive $20 in gift cards for HSN. Please send me your mailing addresses (email to pickyeats@gmail.com) and you should receive your gift cards in a couple weeks. Congrats again on winning! Thanks again to everyone who entered – we had a new record of over 60 entries this time. And now, you all have a chance to win in my new giveaway: 3 varieties of healthy chips and 3 oatmeal bars from Corazonas (all the products in the pictures below!)

The great thing about Corazonas‘ products is that they have all natural ingredients, have amazing taste and texture, and are packed with nutritional benefits. The oatmeal bars are absolutely delicious: they are a great snack or dessert and have ~180 calories, 13-16 grams of whole grain, 5 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein for a huge portion. The tortilla chips have ~140 calories for 14 chips, 3g fiber and 18g whole grain; and the potato chips have ~140 calories per serving, only 6g fat and 2g fiber.

Only a couple days after I received the products from Corazonas to try, I had already finished the oatmeal squares (they were that good). I also used the Lime Tortilla chips with my guilt-free, 7 layer bean dip which tasted great!

Foodie Friday Giveaway: All Natural Protein Shakes from Svelte!

Woohoo – it’s Friday again! Which means two things: 1) Time to announce the winners of my DOUBLE giveaway and 2) Time to launch our new giveaway for this week! Fridays really are fun aren’t they? 🙂 For our last giveaway, we had two winners (one for each product). Congrats to Jeanette and Jen!

Jeanette won the Olive Oil Giveaway

And Jen won the Rudi’s Gluten Free Bread Giveaway

Congrats to both of you!! If you both could send me your mailing addresses, I’ll forward them on to the folks at Olivari and Rudi’s and you should receive your products soon. I’d also like to say THANK YOU to everyone who entered – this was one of our most popular giveaways yet! And now, on to the next giveaway: All Natural Protein Shakes from CalNaturale Svelte.

I was contacted by Svelte a few weeks ago, with the offer to try their products and partner on a giveaway. Initially I hesitated – mainly because protein shakes in general freak me out. They’re usually FILLED with sugar, random chemicals, ingredients that I can’t pronounce, and soy protein isolate which I try to avoid. But when I spoke to the folks at Svelte and read about their products, I was really impressed. They have based their products on a mission to create all natural, organic, nutritious drinks that are nourishing and healthy!

Their protein shakes are made with whole, organic soy beans / soy milk and don’t have any weird ingredients or chemicals in them. Each HUGE shake (16oz) has ~260 calories, 16g protein, 9g sugar and 8g fiber (from inulin). And the best part is, they taste GREAT. All of their flavors are really creamy, delicious, and slightly sweet (but not too sweet).

The drinks are really energizing and great as a snack after a workout or with breakfast in the morning. They have four flavors: Chocolate, French Vanilla, Cappuccino and Spiced Chai. The Cappuccino flavor tastes just like a Frappuccino but is way healthier for you.

For this giveaway, THREE lucky winners will receive Svelte’s products for free!

  • Winner #1: The GRAND PRIZE Winner will receive a 12 pack of Svelte’s drinks (a variety case, so 3 of each flavor)
  • Winners #2 & 3: The two runners up will receive a 4 pack of Svelte’s drinks (so one of each flavor)

DOUBLE Friday Giveaway! Specialty Olive Oil and Gourmet Gluten Free Bread!

Hi Everyone! I’m very excited to announce my first giveaway of the new year – and given that it is my first giveaway this year, I thought I’d kick things off with a DOUBLE giveaway! I received so many great products over the holidays that I just couldn’t wait to space them out into multiple giveaways 🙂

So how does a double giveaway work? Well you can enter to win one or BOTH of the products: you just have to specify which products you’d like in your comment. I’ll run my random selection of the winner twice (so if you are super lucky and enter for both products you could win both!)

Ok – so first up – we have amazing Specialty Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Olivari. They sent me a wonderful gift package complete with 1 bottle of EVOO – with a super cool pop-up pour spout! They also sent me a garlic press, a few coupons for their other olive oils, and some fun recipe cards.

Their olive oil is amazingly smooth and very fruity – you can smell the wonderful olive flavor as you’re pouring it on a salad or into a pan! Their ingredients are 100% natural and they are proponents of the beneficial Mediterranean diet: known for fresh fruits and veggies, healthy fats and lighter proteins! One lucky reader will win this exact same gift box courtesy of Olivari!

My second foodie giveaway is in partnership with Rudi’s Gluten Free Bakery! They were kind enough to send me a sample pack of three of their gluten free breads: the original, multigrain and cinnamon raisin. I have to say – the cinnamon raisin was my personal favorite, but all three of the varieties were great!

While they don’t taste EXACTLY like regular bread – they are pretty close and the best gluten-free breads I’ve ever had! [Recent Update: I just tried the bread again after toasting it in the toaster oven on low. After warming the bread, it became even softer and fluffier with a really great, slightly crispy texture on the outside! I was really impressed. It actually tasted exactly like toast I’d eat in the morning – with a nice cakey texture to the bread. And my husband who normally hates gluten-free bread, asked me to make a sandwich for him with Rudi’s bread – and he LOVED it. Way to go Rudi’s!!] Bread lovers won’t be disappointed with this product – and the best part is, they are 100% natural as well. Many of the ingredients are organic and all the breads are freshly baked in Rudi’s bakery. One lucky reader will win this exact same gift package and all 3 breads courtesy of Rudi’s Bakery!

Now the important part:
