Kristen’s Raw 18th Awesome Giveaway – FREE CHIA SEEDS!

by Kristen Suzanne in awesome giveaway, chia seeds

It’s time for another awesome giveaway! The prize this time? CHIA SEEDS! WHOOHOO! I will be drawing the name of 1 winner, who will receive a 2-pound bag of chia seeds (courtesy of Chia Seeds Direct).

Chia seeds rock the house. Most of you already know I’m a big fan of these cute lil guys. Read my post about chia here, the “Dieter’s Dream Food.” Chia seeds are being praised for many things including their fantastic nutrient profile, which proudly boasts iron, boron, essential fatty acids, fiber, and more. Add to that the claims that they may improve heart health, reduce blood pressure, stabilize blood sugar, help people lose weight from giving them extra stamina, energy, and curbing hunger, and you might become a fan of these little guys, too. They’re superstars in my house and we consume them on a regular basis.


There are many wonderful ways to enjoy them, for example:

  • Plain, by the spoonful (be sure to carry dental floss… I’m speaking from experience – lol)
  • Roll a peeled banana in them
  • Add them to smoothies and Raw vegan nut/seed milks
  • Make chia crackers (like here) or chia bread (like here, this recipe doesn’t call for chia seeds specifically, but you can substitute the “twister” blend for ground chia)
  • Make raw jelly
  • And… drumroll please…. chia pudding (like Holiday Chia Pudding! Have you made this yet?) It’s the best!
Want the chance to win? It’s simple to participate! All you have to do is answer the following question in this post’s comment section. The contest will end Thursday night, February 4th @ 11:59pm. I’ll enter everyone’s name who answered the question into a drawing and announce the winner on my blog Friday, February 5th. *Please note: this month’s contest is only open to people living in the United States and Canada.

Kristen’s Raw 17th Awesome Giveaway – FREE RAW VITAMINS!

by Kristen Suzanne in awesome giveaway


It’s time for another awesome giveaway (here was the last giveaway I hosted). The prize for January? RAW VITAMINS from VITAMIN CODE. I will be drawing the name of 1 winner for a bottle of their
Vitamin Code Raw D3 – The Hottest Nutrient Under The Sun. (How cool of them to offer this to my readers!)


Right now, with this being winter in the United States, I suspect there are a lot of people out there who are in need of this important nutrient! Vitamin D3 is vital for many functions including to help build a stronger immune system. Here is what Vitamin Code / Garden of Life had to say about Vitamin D3…

As vitamin D deficiency has become more prevalent, the attention and focus paid to vitamin D have increased, and for good reason. Most people familiar with vitamin D understand that this nutrient is essential to skeletal system health.† Along with calcium, vitamin D is considered vital for maintaining healthy bones.† Vitamin D actually regulates the use of calcium in the body by dramatically increasing its absorption and utilization.

Much of the interest in vitamin D stems from the fact that it’s found throughout the body in over 600 receptor sites including the brain and the heart. Due to the fact that vitamin D receptors are so prevalent in the body, research has increased on vitamin D, and seemingly everyday new studies tout the health benefits of vitamin D consumption.

Recent studies have also shown that vitamin D supports immune health by helping to regulate the immune system.† The brain is home to dozens of vitamin D receptor sites, and vitamin D has been shown to enhance memory and concentration.† Vitamin D supports healthy digestion, again since receptor sites are found from the mouth all the way through the intestines.† Healthy vitamin D levels support two increasing areas of concern—breast health for women and prostate health for men.†
†These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

ARE YOU READY TO WIN???
It’s simple to participate! All you have to do is answer the following question in this post’s comment section. The contest will end Friday night, January 22th @ 11:59pm. I’ll enter everyone’s name who answered the question into a drawing and announce the winner on my blog Saturday, January 23rd. (Please note: While I would love to hear from everyone around the world in answering this question, I have to limit the winners to people living in the continental United States.)

QUESTION: What is one of your 2010 New Year’s Resolutions / Goals that you’re still sticking with today?




But that’s not all! Vitamin Code is also sponsoring another giveaway for my readers for their RAW Cleanse product. Great timing, too, as I bet a bunch of you are working on your New Year’s Resolutions for healthier, cleaner living. This product could be a great way to support that. Be sure to check back over the next couple of weeks for that giveaway.

Winners of my 15th Awesome Giveaway – RAW VITAMINS

by Kristen Suzanne in awesome giveaway
Congratulations EARTH MOTHER and MARATHON VAL!!! Your names were chosen as the winners of my 15th Awesome Giveaway. The prize: Earth Mother has won the Perfect Weight vitamins from Vitamin Code and Marathon Val has won a bottle of Raw One For Women – YAY!!!!!! Simply email me the address you want your prize mailed to.

Here is what Earth Mother and Marathon Val had to say when asked, “Which bottle of vitamins do you want to win AND why?”

Earth Mother wrote, I’d like the Perfect Weight vitamin. Their website said that lifestyle changes like diet and increased exercise put more stress on the body’s system. Hello? I’ve gone from a highly processed carnivorous diet to a raw vegan diet in the past year, AND from being a sedentary couch potato to walking 6+ miles a day.
Yikes! Think I qualify? :D”

Marathon Val wrote, “I would love the raw vitamins! I never know if I am taking the “right” vitamins and I know many brands do not contain the best ingredients.”

Please note: The Perfect Weight vitamins are not intended for women trying to conceive, who are pregnant or who are breast feeding. Vitamin Code’s Prenatals are perfect for those times!

My next Awesome Giveaway is in December, so check back for details!

Winners of My 14th Awesome Giveaway – Free Chia Seeds


Congratulations Courtney and Finding True Serenity!!! Your names were chosen as the winners of my 14th Awesome Giveaway. The prize: You will each receive a 3 pound bag of chia seeds, courtesy of Chia Seeds Direct – YAY!!!!!! Simply email me the address you want your prize mailed to.

Here is what Courtney and Finding True Serenity had to say when asked, “If you could donate 1 million dollars to charity, which would you choose AND why?”

Courtney wrote, “That’s tough because there are so many that are deserving. I would donate to Ashoka, a non-profit dedicated to assisting social entrepreneurs. I love the organization because they work from the bottom up – finding individuals and small groups that are making a difference in their own communities – instead of from the top down (which rarely works!). This strategy great because the people that they fund are connected to their communities, know exactly what is needed, and are better able to figure out the best approach.”

Finding True Serenity wrote, “Wonderful question! I honesty would have to name my #1 choice as WWF (World Wildlife Fund).
I think we need to protect our natural home, and all of it’s inhabitants while promoting efficient and sustainable approaches to preserve and reverse the degradation of our planet so all of our needs are met in harmony with nature! 

I would love to win a bag of chia seeds! They sound quite universal! Thank you for the wonderful opportunity!”

My next Awesome Giveaway is in October, so check back for details!

My favorite book as a 4-5 year old was from the Little Critter series called “Just Grandma and Me”. It came with a casset tape that I could play and pretend to read along with. It is about a special day spent with Grandma at the beach. I loved imagining myself at the beach with my grandma.
