A Few of My Favorite Things. . .For YOU! (Holiday Giveaway!)

SONY DSC

One of the perks of blogging is learning about new foods and other food-related products. I love finding out what’s “out there” and discovering healthy, sugar-free ingredients or products that people can enjoy on an anti-candida diet, low glycemic diet or exclusive diet. Oftentimes, I’ll post a review on the blog, but sometimes I don’t have the opportunity.

With holidays around the corner, I thought you might like to learn about some of my favorite products (some new, some old faves)–and try them out yourself!

This giveaway is open to anyone in the US or Canada (with huge apologies to my international readers!) BE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN TO THE GIVEAWAY FOR YOUR COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE, AND ENTER BY FILLING IN THE RAFFLECOPTER FORM THERE!

ELLOVI BUTTER

Ellovi Butter giveaway

A few months ago, I was contacted by Kelly at Ellovi to see if I wanted to try their body butter and lip butter. Since I’m always on the lookout for new, natural body care products, of course said “yes”. What makes Ellovi special is that they don’t add any water to their butters, allowing them to stay pure and fresh without any added preservatives. They’re made from six totally natural ingredients (in fact, the site informs us that these ingredients are “so pure you can eat them”–and believe me, I’ve been tempted): macadamia ternifolia seed oil; cocos nucifera (coconut) oil; cannabis sativa seed (hemp) oil; sclerocarya birrea (marula) oil; non-GMO corn starch and butyrospermum parkii (shea). I was surprised to find no cacao butter in the jar, as I could have sworn that’s what I was smelling; the scent is light and slightly chocolately with nutty undertones. Truly delightful! And the body butter goes on smooth and light as well, without any greasy residue. I’ve been using it straight out of the shower and my skin’s remained soft and smooth this winter as a result. I’d say this is one of my best finds of the year!

Your prize: one jar of Ellovi body butter and one Ellovi lip butter.

Visit the Ellovi site or connect on Facebook, twitter, or instagram.

GROWING NATURALS

growingnaturals on rickiheller.com

[Note: This photo illustrates several of the Growing Naturals products. Your specific prize is described below.]

I love how clean and simple the ingredients are in Growing Naturals protein powders. Plus, they’re sprouted and raw–how great is that? The best part is the taste, of course! Flavorful and not the least bit chalky. I’ve made many recipes with their rice and pea protein as well as the rice milk powder, but my favorites have to be this Chocolate Peppermint Bark with a Protein Boost and the Easy Raw Protein Bowl. And, of course, I create high-protein pancakes and smoothies at least once a week with their powders!

Your Prize: A pack of one Rice Protein powder, one Pea Protein powder and one Rice Milk Powder (note that the illustration above shows more jars than are in this prize).

Visit the Growing Naturals site or connect on Facebook, on twitter, on instagram or on Pinterest. And be sure to check out their “Winter Weight Challenge” event, too: the slogan is “It’s easier to keep it off than take it off!” In other words, let’s not add any excess weight in the first place! Visit the challenge page to enter to win a $2500 spa vacation package, and if you want some of their protein powders STAT, get 20% off your first order! There are also weekly prizes–a great event!

Grain-Free JK GOURMET

JK Gourmet giveaway

I’ve been a fan of Grain-Free JK Gourmet ever since I had my bakery, Bake it Healthy, back in the early 2000’s, and I used to bump into Jodi (the company owner) as we each made deliveries to various specialty stores and health food shops in the city. I loved that Jodi healed her ulcerative colitis by following the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet), and started Grain-Free JK Gourmet so others could eat well on a grain-free diet as well. When I found out that they’d introduced baking mixes sweetened with coconut sugar, I was thrilled, and more than happy to sample the mixes and almond flour they sent me. I immediately set myself the task of trying both the waffles and cookies (I know, it’s a tough job. . . ). The waffles (which I made with flax eggs) were fabulous, crispy on the outside and light in the middle, perfect with a slather of homemade blueberry compote. I baked up the cookies with my own added unsweetened carob chips, and loved the results. The HH has been enjoying the cookies daily since I made them, and even remarked how pleased he was that I baked some “regular cookies.” Yep, he assumed they contained refined sugars and gluten–they taste that much like the “real thing.”

Your Prize: One bag of almond flour, one box of cookie mix, one box of waffle/pancake mix.

Visit the Grain-Free JK Gourmet site or connect with them on Facebook.

 

LOVE BEETS

Love Beets giveaway

[Note: this photo illustrates the whole family of Love Beets products. Your prize is described below.]

 

It’s true: I really DO love beets! (To wit, this and this andΒ this and this). Love Beets is a brand of marinated and cooked beets that come in a vacuum pack in the refrigerated section of your supermarket so you can have them ready-to-go any time. They’re all natural (no artificial anything) and most are gluten-free. And they taste amazing–just like the ones you cook yourself! Even though I do cook beets often, I think I was spoiled by the Love Beets I’ve been using over the past few weeks. Sooooo convenient! I’m sharing the candida-friendly varieties of cooked beets in this package, but if you can have other sweeteners, be sure to check out the Sweetfire (sweet and spicy) and Honey & Ginger varieties–they both sound ah-mazing. If you think you don’t like beets, Love Beets will change your mind!

Your prize: one package of Cooked Beets and one package of marinated Mild Organic Vinegar beets.

Visit the Love Beets site or connect with them on Facebook, instagram, twitter or Pinterest.

 

NuNATURALS

NuNaturals stevia on rickiheller.com

[Note: This photo illustrates some of NuNaturals’ fabulous products. Your specific prize is described below.]

What more can I say about my favorite brand of stevia? If you’ve been on my blog for any time at all, you’ve no doubt seen many recipes that use this wonderful sweetener. NuNaturals is known for its pure quality and taste, totally lacking that common “metallic” or bitter aftertaste that so many other brands have. And they also offer a plethora of flavored stevias, from vanilla to orange or lemon and peppermint. Their most recent products, the Simple Syrup and Cocoa Syrups (both plain cocoa and cocoa mint) have provided a new freedom to those on sugar-free diets, allowing recipes unheard of before. And the syrups are fantastic over pancakes or waffles, too! I absolutely LOVE NuNaturals stevia and recommend it virtually every chance I get!

Your prize: one bottle Cherry VanillaΒ  Stevia Liquid,Β  a 50 packet box of NuStevia White Stevia Powder packets, a bottle of Cocoa Syrup and a bottle of Cocoa Mint Syrup.

Visit the NuNaturals site or connect on Facebook,Β twitter,Β Instagram or Pinterest.

 

OUTER SPICE

Outer Spice giveaway

[Note: I have one no-salt and one low-salt mix; your prize includes two low-salt mixes.]

Okay, I will admit it: I’m a bit obsessed with Outer Spice seasonings! I first tried them after Derek contacted me to try our some of these unique, healthy spice mixes. What I LOVE about these spice mixes is that the blends have been hand-selected from whole spices based on both taste and the curative properties of the spices (such as high antioxidant content, or anti-inflammatory properties). And they do taste amazing! I tried both the Original flavor (low salt) and the Spicy mix (without salt) and fell in love with both. I’ve been sprinkling them on pretty much everything savory the past few weeks. I’m already sad that they aren’t available in Canada once I run out!

Your Prize: One jar of Original Low Salt and one Spicy No Salt.

Visit the Outer Spice site or connect with them on Facebook, twitter or instagram.

 

THERMOS

Thermos giveaway on rickiheller.com

I’m one of those people who loves to bring my matcha tea with me in the car if I have to get somewhere in the morning. I’ve tried various thermal mugs and jars, but always pined after the traditional Thermos container I used to have in my 30s. Still, I stubbornly stuck to the more modern thermal cups, thinking I’d be able to one day find one with the same power to retain heat (or cold) as my previous container. Nope. Nothing matches the original Thermos container. That’s why I was thrilled to receive this nifty little Vacuum Insulated 16 oz model courtesy of Thermos. What I love about this baby is that it can be used for any kind of beverage OR soup/stew. And look at that cute little folding spoon! Fold it up and tuck it in the cover of the Thermos and you’ve got one totally portable meal that will retain the temperature it’s meant to be.

Your Prize: one 16-ounce (500 ml) Vacuum Insulated thermos container with spoon.

Visit the Thermos site or connect on Facebook, twitter or Pinterest.

Here’s what you’ll get from my (gently used) collection:

As a food blogger, I receive a lot of cookbooks. Periodically, I just have to clear out my bookshelves, and I give away some of the books that I know are most popular. These three are from my collection. They have been read by me, but are in excellent condition nonetheless (as a book lover, I take good care of my reads!).

SONY DSC

The Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon. Who doesn’t love Angela and her recipes?! Of course I’m a fan, too. But since I started the ACD, I’m no longer eating maple syrup or dates, and my food is all gluten-free. As much as I love the recipes in this book, I just can’t eat many of them any more. As a result, I’d giving this away so the book can be truly appreciated by one of you! Β  Β  Β  Β 

Β  Idiots' Guide to GF Vegan Cooking giveaway

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Gluten-Free Vegan Cooking by Julieanna Hever and Beverly Lynn Bennett. I loved this book when I got it to review. It’s a comprehensive guidebook and cookbook for anyone new to GF, vegan living. At this point, though (almost 15 years into it), I am basically set in my gluten-free, vegan ways. I think this book could better benefit someone else now. Β  Β  Β 

Β  Β  Natural Vegan Kitchen on rickiheller.com

The Natural Vegan Kitchen by Christine Waltermyer. This lovely book is also a kind of primer for anyone new to a natural-foods kitchen. Again, while I think it’s a great book, I’ve been living in a natural kitchen for a few decades now, and am happy to pass this along to someone who will use it more than I will. Β  Β  Β  Β 

Β  Super Healthy Cookies giveaway

Super Healthy Cookies by Hallie Klecker. I love this book. So much, in fact, that I actually bought my own copy before I received a copy for review! Hallie (of Daily Bites) has a food philosophy that’s very similar to mine, except omnivorous. We both favor fewer grains, low glycemic sweeteners, and whole, real gluten-free foods. Although this book isn’t 100% vegan, 35 of the 50 recipes are, and others can be easily adapted (in fact, I adapted the recipe I made for my review of the book, here). Rather than keep two copies, I’m giving my extra one to one of you.

Your prize: one each of all six books!

Grain-Free JK GOURMET

JK Gourmet giveaway

I’ve been a fan of Grain-Free JK Gourmet ever since I had my bakery, Bake it Healthy, back in the early 2000’s, and I used to bump into Jodi (the company owner) as we each made deliveries to various specialty stores and health food shops in the city. I loved that Jodi healed her ulcerative colitis by following the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet), and started JK Gourmet so others could eat well on a grain-free diet as well. When I found out that they’d introduced baking mixes sweetened with coconut sugar, I was thrilled, and more than happy to sample the mixes and almond flour they sent me.

Your Prize: One bag of almond flour, one box of cookie mix, one box of waffle/pancake mix.

NuPASTA

NuPasta giveaway

There are many reasons why people shun traditional wheat-based, or even gluten-free, pasta: you’re on the early stages on an anti-candida diet; you’re on a Paleo diet; you have food sensitivities or allergies; or you just don’t want to eat that much starch. And if you’ve heard of shirataki noodles, then you’re already familiar with the concept that NuPasta is based upon: a low glycemic, low calorie and fiber-rich alternative that can be eaten by almost anyone. I’ve had regular shirataki noodles before and must admit I wasn’t a fan; there’s just something about the liquid in which they’re packaged that seems to linger in terms of taste and aroma. But when I got the NuPasta samples, I was blown away by how much they really do resemble “regular” noodles, with a perfectly neutral and really delicious taste. The HH was instantly a fan and actually thought these were wheat-based! (If you’re accustomed to regular pasta, I will note that to me, the texture was different; these are more chewy and sturdy than typical pasta, in my opinion). I’ve been cooking up NuPasta regularly over the past few weeks and just love the convenience and the fact that they can be used with whatever sauces you like. No, I wouldn’t eat pasta (even NuPasta) every week, but what a fabulous treat it is to enjoy when I do want to indulge!

Your prize: three different varieties of NuPasta: Angel Hair, Fettucine and Spaghetti.

Visit the NuPasta site or connect on Facebook, twitter, or instagram and Pinterest.

MYSTERY PRIZE PACKAGE! Blog giveaway prize Ricki Heller

 

As an additional gift in the pack, I’m including a bundle of my favorite baking and cooking ingredients and snacks. These are all vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar-free, and include some of the ingredients I use most on the blogas well as a few I’ve discovered in recent years.

Your Prize: A surprise pack containing at least 5 of my favorite ingredients and snacks.

YOSO COCONUT YOGURT Yoso Yogurt giveaway

[Note: this image illustrates all three varieties of Yoso coconut yogurt. Your specific prize is described below.]

I’ve written before about how much I love the rich, silky, luxurious and delectable coconut yogurt by Yoso. Made from coconut milk, Yoso’s yogurt is perfect for anyone on a vegan or dairy-free diet; but this gem is also wheat-free, gluten-free, nut-free, peanut-free, carageenan-free and casein free. The yogurt is a great source of probiotic cultures, too. And it tastes absolutely amazing! I loved the chocolate and vanilla flavors just on their own, too. And if you eat soy and/or nuts, check out the company’s other products, like soy yogurt, almond-cashew yogurt, dips and spreads, or yogurt-granola packs. Love!

Your Prize: One case (6 containers) of Yoso unsweetened coconut yogurt.

Visit the Yoso site or connect on Facebook, twitter, or instagram. Β

    I would love to win Ricki’s cookbook and Oh She Glows cookbook. Awesome contest thanks so much!

  53. The cherry vanilla stevia sounds fantastic! the sugary treats I miss most are chocolate covered cherries and cherry brownie sundaes. I could probably make tasty ACD versions of both with the stevia πŸ˜€

  89. OH MY! What a giveaway! I don’t know how to single it down to what my favorite part of it is. It’s all so incredible.

  90. Stefan Gonzalez says

    I’m most excited about the protein powder honestly because I can’t afford vegan protein powder and I’ve been trying to build muscle while losing weight. I really care about living a healthier lifestyle, not to mention I want to show my non vegan friends that you can still have muscle and bulk up even as a vegan. Aside from that the lip butter I’m enthusiastic about because I always am trying to find brands that would work well on my lips since they dry out a lot. The cookbooks I find interesting, but I honestly think that the stevia is great because it’s usually a common substitute in vegan baking.

  91. I am dying to win those cookbooks! What an amazing gift!

  92. WOW! This is one of the best prize packs I have ever seen! The growing naturals products and the Love beets are my favorites! I didn’t know love beets had those other flavors. the possibilities are endless! awesome stuff πŸ™‚

  93. The Ellovi butter!

  94. I really want to try the love beets!

  95. The JK and the NuNaturals products-I know I will make some awesome waffles with both of those things!

  96. I’m most excited about Vegan Food Gifts. I love to make Christmas treats for friends and family, and would love to try these new vegan recipes.

  97. I would be most excited to try the Ellovi butter and the NuNaturals liquid stevia.

  98. Wow, so many amazing gifts. What a fantastic giveaway! I’m most excited about the cookbooks and the mystery prize for Canadians.

  99. I share your love of beets!

  100. I’d be excited to win all those cookbooks!

  101. Love it all! Thanks for having this giveaway!

  102. The protein powder looks great! Thanks for the chance to win!

  103. Wow, that is some ginormous giveaway! It’s hard to choose just one thing, but I think the protein powder is tops on my list because it is something I haven’t tried yet.

  104. The thermos — I’d definitely use it for soups!

  105. The baking mixes or the stevia would be fun to play with! I do gluten free baking but have still not worked with almond flour.

  106. What a great prize package! I’m curious about the beets. πŸ™‚

  107. It’s all so exciting! What an awesome giveaway! I’m a sucker for cookbooks, but there’s so many great goodies! A case of Yoso! Woohoo!

  108. Oh! I’m most excited about the books! I love a good cookbook. This is such a wonderful giveaway!

  109. Suzanne Favreau says

    Truly fabulous prizes. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

  110. Dear Ricki,
    Thank-you for having this Giveaway! I love your recipes. Your Giveaway looks great!

  111. Carolyn Openshaw says

    I’m excited about this prize package. Some great books.

  112. marianne charbonneau says

    How can I choose a favourite!?! This is a Wonderful prize package. The food gifts are sure to be something special.

  113. Looks like a great giveaway!

  114. Susan McDonald says

    What a great idea! Thank you for posting your favourite things! I love the beets. I would be most excited about the thermos (perfect for taking soups to the office for lunch!) and trying the pea protein. I’ve never had luck with proteins that are not whey based.

  115. I appreciate all the great recommendations, so even without winning the prize package, I’m excited about the suggestions for new things to try, especially the body butter. (If I didn’t already have the Naturally Sweet and GF cookbook, I’d be most excited about that–I rarely buy cookbooks because there’s usually only a few recipes that appeal to me, but that one is chockful of healthy deliciousness. Ask my husband–he was eating the butterscotch chocolate chip cookies for breakfast this morning!)

    • SO glad to hear this! Thank you so much for the kind comment about NS&GF. And, of course, if you win you can always give the new copy to someone else so they get to eat healthier, too. πŸ™‚

  116. This is a great give away. I’m working on healing and am gluten free. These prizes would be a huge help. Thanks for offering them.

  117. I would love to win the grand prize. It would give me the opportunity to try some new products that I have never even heard of. Thanks for your site and recipes. I have learned so much reading your site.

  118. Karen Vandyken says

    I would love to win the cookbooks!! I am allergic to dairy, gluten and soy so all these cookbooks would be so helpful to me!! I did try to enter this contest on facebook and through my email but it wouldn’t allow me to enter. Not sure why so I hope this enters me in the contest!!

    • Karen, this is step one–then you have to go up to the appropriate Rafflecopter entry form (the box just under the giveaway list of gifts) and click “I entered!”. That will unlock all the other entries. Hope that helps!

  119. I’m most excited about the mystery package, ’cause I love surprises! Thanks.

  120. Marlene Butkiewicz says

    I would love to win the signed cook book! Love your recipes!

  121. I love cookbooks! And I’m always intrigued by mystery packages.

  122. Phyllis Heffner says

    I like the thermos the best because it would permit me to take a warm lunch with me no matter if I can’t find a place to heat it,but the pea protein comes in a close second!

  123. Oh my gosh, I live ellovi body butter! Aaaand I’m just about out of my supply πŸ™‚ thanks for the amazing review of these products, Ricki!

  124. I love new cookbooks! I am a big time cookbook collector. I also love NuNaturals products. They have the best tasting stevia by far.

  125. I am most interested in the NuNuturals because I do sugar free foods.

  126. Marilyn Barnes says

    So many generous offers! The NuNaturals stevia is most enticing to me as I am just learning how to use stevia.

  127. There are so many products out there to learn about! I’ve heard quite a few things from different nutritionists and physicians about the benefits of pea protein, but haven’t had the chance to experiment with it myself! That’s definitely the one that jumped out at me the most πŸ™‚

  128. I’ve never heard of a Stevia brand with no aftertaste! Would love to try it!

  129. I would like any of the cookbooks….as I am a Home Economics teacher & always looking for healthier options / new ideas.

  130. Thank you SO much for such a fantastic opportunity, Ricki!!! I have been dying to try those beets, but can’t find them anywhere. But the kickers for me are your book and the thermos to take all the great stuff i make wherever I’m going! πŸ™‚

  131. Michelle O. says

    Thank you so much for this give-away!! I love finding new products (that taste great!) and I’ve never heard of the Yoso coconut yogurt before. Will look for it next grocery day πŸ™‚

  132. Gloria Clayton says

    Very nice products, I love them.

  133. I like the nu natural stevia and the mystery pack is very interesting
    Thanks for all those wonderful recipes you share with us readers

  134. All the giveaway items look awesome. The thing I’d like the most is your cookbook Ricki, Naturally Sweet and Gluten-Free. I’ve struggled with Candida for years. Finally I’ve had the courage to start the diet and begin the healing process. Your site and the recipes on it made the plan workable and has helped me stick with the diet by providing some of the things I missed most–like cookies. I love the Ultimate Candida Diet Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I keep a stash in the freezer for the times when the sweet tooth calls. I’m also introducing my kids to a healthier more wholesome way of eating and I think your recipes will even pass muster with the kids. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and encouragement. You’ve been a real blessing!

    • Thank you so much, Nicki! But before I say anything else: Naturally Sweet & Gluten-Free is NOT for anyone in the early stages of the anti-candida diet! It’s a maintenance book. There are desserts (and everything else) for people on the ACD in Living Candida-Free. Whew! Wouldn’t want anyone to think otherwise. πŸ™‚

      And. . . Congratulations on sticking with the diet! (You’ll get to NS&GF eventually!!). I’m so glad you like the cookies. I do the same thing–keep a stash in the freezer (and when I’m really desperate for a sweet, they’re not even bad frozen). πŸ˜‰ I’ve shared many of these recipes with friends’ kids, too, so I hope they work for yours as well. Best of luck with the diet–hang in there! It does get easier. πŸ™‚

  135. I’m most interested in the beet products as they are heart healthy. Everything looks great – I will likely end up buying most of these items! πŸ™‚

  136. I want to try everything actually. Oddly, i think i would be most interested in the beets. I also think i should like beets but don’t particularly and i think that is due to how i prepare them. So i would be interested in seeing if they prepared differently – and correctly – if i would like them better.

  137. valerie sobus says

    I’m most excited at the chance to win those cookbooks! I love clean eating and am always on the hunt for new and awesome recipes πŸ™‚

  138. Its hard to decide whats my favorite!!!! I like the Stevia and your cookbook πŸ™‚

  139. I am a big fan of the precooked beets. They come in handy in so many recipes! This giveaway is really impressive! Hope I’m the lucky winner! Happy Holidays to one and all.

  140. I am super excited for the cookbooks!! Always looking for healthy and yummy recipes!!

  141. Honestly, I’m excited about all the items! They all look great. My kids and I are trying to transition to more of a vegan diet, so the cookbooks would be very helpful. The other items as well would be fun to try. Thank you so much for offering this!!
