Yippee!!! It’s time for another awesome giveaway (can you believe it’s my 23rd!?). Sirova is offering another giveaway here on my blog. Sweet!!! The prize this time? One lucky winner will win one bag of Go Raw’s Apple Cinnamon Granola along with a 9″ nut milk bag. How cool is that?
Here is what Sirova says about Go Raw’s Apple Cinnamon Granola:
You probably had apple cinnamon granola in the past, but did you know that the raw version is just as delicious, not to mention incredibly healthy?
Sprouted organic buckwheat groats, sprouted organic flax seeds, sprouted organic sesame seeds, organic apples (unsulphured), raw organic agave nectar, and organic cinnamon are mixed together to feed you at the cellular level while you enjoy every spoonful!
Apple cinnamon granola goes great with almond milk or eat it right out of the bag! Gently dried at less than 105 degrees, slightly sweet and loaded with fiber – it’s gotta be the healthiest, most satisfying cereal ever!
Here is what Sirova says about the nut milk bag:
These sprouting bags are made of high-quality nylon, and are perfect for sprouting, making nut milks and even juicing! Each bag is handmade in the US, and quality tested to ensure that you receive the finest product.
These bags are ideal for any number of straining or sprouting uses. The fine mesh material minimizes sediment and allows for sprouting of even the smallest of seeds and grains, while the bias cut, surge sewn construction ensures durability.
To strain your nut milks or juices, simply hang the bag above a container (we like to use a kitchen cupboard door handle) and squeeze the liquid out leaving only the pulp (fiber) in the bag. Then, simply rinse the bag, using a little dish soap if you like, and hang the bag to dry after squeezing all the water out.
Every once in a while, soak the nut milk bag in a container with 3% hydrogen peroxide to cover. This will kill any aerobic bacteria contamination. Rinse again before using.

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, May 14th @ 11:59pm.

I walked on Monday and will also get in my 2 mile walk Tuesday, too.
Hi everyone! We’ve been on the road for two days now and I thought I’d share some photos and tidbits.
While we ventured our way to Washington D.C., we stopped at Trader Joe’s (score!) for a potty break, to walk around (doctor’s orders to get out of the car every two hours), and to load up on a couple goodies and some water.
One of the things my husband likes to include in his diet to help him build / maintain muscle is vegan protein powders. We ran out of our Sun Warrior Sprouted Rice protein the night before we left NY, so we grabbed this at one of the many health food stores.
So, while we were in the parking lot at Trader Joe’s, I took our two protein shaker bottles and made us each a shake. It was quite tasty. Note to self: If it’s windy outside, be sure to have the car doors closed when scooping out the protein powder.
We kept on our way to D.C. It was my first time there (gasp!). And, being a foodie, our first stop was… Java Green (chuckling as I think to myself that our first stop wasn’t to see the White House or the Lincoln Memorial… no, not for me… it was food related).
At Java Green, I had their delicious Spicy Green Juice. The sizes I had to choose from were “Tall” “Grande” “Venti” and “Giant” (I chuckled at the Starbucks’ lingo, except for the “giant” of course, which is the size I eagerly chose). The ingredients were kale, spinach, lemon, ginger, cayenne, and agave. It was very spicy but it was oh-so-yummy! Even later that night while we were walking around the windy, chilly city, my tummy felt so warm inside!
Here is the Washington Monument
Here is the Lincoln Memorial (I was pretty much speechless here)
Here is the White House
We stayed the night in Tyson’s Corner which is outside of D.C. and took off the following morning and stopped at Whole Foods Market for food.
We selected a few organic apples – YUM!
I also saw these at Whole Foods Market. They’re by Go Raw. And, let me say… these are FUN. The crunch they give is great. The pow of ginger is awesome. The hint of sweetness is delightful. Hmmm – loved them and wished I had bought another bag. I’ve since heard from my Facebook friends that the Pizza flavor is extra awesome, so if I see those on the road, I’ll be sure to give them a try. These kinds of things make great road trip snacks.
We decided that we’d drive to Wilmington, North Carolina and stop for the night. One of the reasons we chose that city is because Google Maps (via iPhone) told us there were a couple of Whole Foods Markets there, which one of the goals of our road trip is to hit many of them so we can stay stocked with fresh organic produce, food, and snacks. Well, the spot that Google Maps directed us to was smack in the middle of a residential neighborhood. I couldn’t help but giggle as we drove closer and closer to the alleged spot for WF, saying, “It sure would be weird here in the middle of the neighborhood, but hey, what do I know?”
So, we’ll hit up the WF in Charleston, SC tomorrow.
Lastly, the road trip has flown by so far. What would you expect though? We’re listening to New Moon. (My husband is into it, too.)
