Giveaway: Good Eats & Good Karma

There are two reasons why I love Small Bites giveaways.

First, I take great pleasure in the enjoyment of food — good food — and like to share my favorite finds with others (whether they have similar preferences or end up trying a new item based on a suggestion of mine).

I’m even happier to showcase small, independent companies that make delicious food that is also healthful and respectful of the environment.

And so we come to the newest Small Bites giveaway: Kookie Karma.

A Fair & Delicious Giveaway

Chocolate is one of the most misunderstood foods. Although many chocolate-based products are full of sugars, unhealthful fats, and artificial ingredients, “the real thing” is a different story (see my Ultimate Chocolate Shopping Guide for more information, including the environmental and child labor concerns surrounding cocoa production).

As a nutrition professional who champions the health benefits of high quality cocoa, I am thrilled to announce the latest giveaway: Theo Chocolates.

Come and Get Your Sea Vegetables

I have often said that sea vegetables are criminally underrated. Like their terrestrial brethren, they offer significant nutrition, but sea vegetables also provide the same omega-3 fatty acids found in fish (where else do you think fish get their omega 3s from?).

A few months ago, I came across SeaSnax, a roasted seaweed snack cooked in olive oil (most varieties contain sesame oil; while not a terrible oil, it lacks the heart-healthy monounsaturated fats of olive oil).

Available in plain, onion, chipotle, and wasabi flavors, this is a delicious, crunchy, GMO-free snack (or a great addition to soups and salads) with a simple ingredient list.

Since I love to share my must-have staples, here is your chance to win a case. One winner will get a choice of a dozen Grab & Go’s (any flavor) or 4 packs of full sheet singles (any flavor).

Giveaway: Make Your Own Whole Food Bars

Time for another giveaway. This time around, you have a say in the final product, since the prize is your very own case of You Bars (a company I blogged about three years ago, and am happy to see do very well).

The You Bar customizations and options are fantastic. Not only are the vast majority of ingredients organic, they are also commonly not found in commercial whole food bars. Want some maca powder in your bar? You got it. How about a sunflower seed butter base? Cacao nibs? Hemp seeds? Apricots? Perhaps some organic rice protein? No matter what your dietary needs or preferences, you will be able to create something.

Giveaway: Mary’s Gone Crackers

A few months ago, Mary Waldner — creator of the Mary’s Gone Crackers snack linespoke with me about what inspired her to create her popular line of organic, vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free snacks, and why avoiding genetically modified ingredients is so important for her as a manufacturer.

In case you’re not familiar with Mary’s Gone Crackers, they provide a unique spin on common snacks.

Their crackers are made from a combination of brown rice, quinoa, sesame seeds, and flax, and are great for snacking and dipping.  Their cookies are not cloyingly sweet, contain spices instead of flavorings (their ginger cookies, for example, list ‘ginger root’ as an ingredient), and are made with chia seeds, coconut oil (instead of the commonly-used corn or soybean), and several gluten-free flours.

This month, two lucky Small Bites readers will score some Mary’s Gone Crackers loot.

Giveaway: Kale Chips, Sunflower Seeds, and Fruit Leathers — Oh My!

Time for another raw, vegan, and gluten-free giveaway!

Last month, it was macaroons and “grawnola”, this time around it’s ‘cheesy’ kale chips, sprouted sunflower seeds, and unique fruit leathers courtesy of the folks at Kaia Foods, an Oakland-based company started in 2006.  Creator Nick Kelley left a career in finance to fulfill his dream of making “minimally processed, truly healthy food more readily available to everyone”.

As you know, I only do giveaways of products I enjoy myself.  Kaia Foods’ spiced sprouted sunflower seeds are a staple in my kitchen.  The teriyaki and garlic varieties instantly liven up salads, the sweet curry flavor adds a delicious crunch to soups, and the cocoa molé sunflower seeds are perfect airport food.  The lime-ginger fruit leather is my favorite (orange + banana + kale + lime juice + ginger!).  As for kale chips — there is never a wrong time for those!

Giveaway: Hail Healthy Snacks

It has been quite a while since I offered a giveaway on Small Bites, but a new line of products I recently discovered made me think, “I’ve got to share this with everyone!”.  I am referring to Hail Merry’s delicious raw, vegan, and gluten-free offerings.

I first discovered Hail Merry earlier this year when visiting Texas, the company’s home state.  In a rather serendipitous turn of events, two days after returning from that trip, I noticed that my usual shopping destinations here in Seattle had started carrying their products that same week.

Giveaway: A Token Of Appreciation From Me To You

thank-you-and-Follow-upThis year brought about an array of changes, shifts, and transitions for me, and through it all I always had the support, encouragement, and an endless supply of good vibes from readers and followers of Small Bites.

As I pondered possibilities for the next giveaway, I thought a personal token of appreciation from me was most fitting, particularly as we approach Thanksgiving and the holiday season.

Giveaway: Raw Vegan Bounty!

duck_logoNew  York City’s Pure Food and Wine is the Lamborghini of raw vegan restaurants.  Elegant, one-of-a-kind, and consistently delivering unrivaled quality.

The driver behind the wheel is Sarma Melngailis, CEO, co-founder, and general “rawckstar”.  Her quirky and laid-back coolness mixed with a keen business sense (she’s a Wharton graduate, folks) is very “Martha Stewart meets Gwen Stefani”.

I have eaten at Pure multiple times, sometimes with people who love raw vegan foods; other times with individuals whose idea of a “dream meal” is a big, juicy steak.  Regardless of who my dinner companions have been, the first or second bite of each course was followed by anything from a simple “wow” to “Oh my God, you need to try this RIGHT NOW!”.

Pure’s “sister” store is One Lucky Duck Takeaway, a combination juice/smoothie bar and takeout shop chock-full of raw vegan deliciousness (from the must-have Mallomar to rosemary crackers to salads, macaroons, chocolate bars, and more) that is entirely soy-free and almost entirely gluten-free (no wheat is used, but a small number of products contain oats, which are stored in facilities that also process wheat products).

All the packaged snack at One Lucky Duck are available on OneLuckyDuck.com, along with clothing, accessories, and indispensable ingredients (maca, lucuma, coconut oil, etc.) for raw vegan foodies

I am super excited to announce that three Small Bites readers will now have the chance to taste the amazing creations of One Lucky Duck’s talented chefs.

A Giveaway Any Pizza Maker Will Love

header-rustic-crust-logoI often receive puzzled looks when I mention that pizza can be a very healthy meal.  Most people who express surprise must imagine I am talking about fast-food pizzas — their thick and doughy white flour crusts, the massive globs of cheese, the piles of pepperoni and sausage on top.

As with many other dishes, the easiest way to consume a healthier pizza is making it at home, and a healthy crust is key.  In this latest giveaway, I am happy to offer the opportunity for three of you to try my favorite pizza crusts for free!

The folks at Rustic Crust will graciously provide three winners of this giveaway with two coupons (or online coupon codes) for free ready-made pizza crusts.

Not only are these crusts flavorful and crispy, they are also a wonderful base for healthy pizza.  Although you will have the entire line of products at your disposal, here are the crusts I strongly recommend:

  • Ultimate Whole Grain (4 grams fiber per slice)
  • Organic Great Grains (my absolute favorite; 5 grams of fiber per slice, omega-3s from flaxseed)

Gluten-free?  No worries.  Rustic Crust offers a “Napoli Herb” crust that does not contain any gluten or wheat.

To enter this giveaway:

  1. Send an e-mail to “andy@andybellatti.com” with the subject line “Rustic Crust Giveaway” anytime between 12:01 AM (Pacific Standard Time) on Friday, August 13, 2010 and 11:59 PM (Pacific Standard Time) on Sunday, September 12, 2010.
  2. Only one e-mail entry per person.  Multiple e-mail entries do not increase chances of winning.
  3. You may increase your chance of winning (equivalent to a second entry) by sharing the link to this giveaway on Twitter or Facebook.  For Twitter, you must include “via @andybellatti” in your tweet.  For Facebook, please notify me via e-mail when you share this link on your wall.
  4. Winners will be selected at random on Sunday, September 12, 2010 and will be contacted by me via e-mail.
