Good Morning, friends and happy, happy, HAPPY Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hinted last night that I have a SUPER awesome surprise for you guys and I’m not exaggerating; this is truly an awesome giveaway that I’m so excited to be a part of!!!!!
Swanson Health Products is one of my favorite places to get all of the high quality great products that can sometimes be hard to find or overpriced at other stores. Their prices are wonderful and I’m always able to really load up on my favorites and also on new finds.
When they contacted me about participating in their fun 30-day blogger holiday giveaway; I couldn’t say yes fast enough. They offered me a $100 coupon code to spend on any products that I wanted and a $100 coupon code for one of my readers to win. This brings a whole new meaning to black Friday shopping, right?!?!?!
If you’ve never checked out the Swanson Health Product website, you seriously need to ASAP…. so much great stuff to choose from. It took me forever to make up my mind on what I wanted, but here’s what I went with……
Plenty of snacks for the kiddos and Quest bars for me. They have all of the flavors, but this just happens to be my favorite. I’ve been wanting to try the PB thins for awhile. They’re made by the same company that makes PB2 and we loved them.
Some of my favorites here. I think sun butter is my all time favorite of all the nut and seed butters and I’m really anxious to try the Swanson brand. These figs are beyond delicious. I eat them as a snack with almonds or diced up in my salad. Chia Seeds for smoothies and oatmeal. If you’ve never used Chia Seeds to thicken your oatmeal up; you need to give it a try. And chocolate PB2… perfect for smoothies. Stevia peppermint sweet drops will be great for holiday coffee and baking.
And there’s more! The spelt is something I wanted to experiment with. Have you ever had whole spelt? I think it cooks up much like bulgur or faro. The whole wheat pastry flour is my baking go-to, so I was very happy to stock up on this. I’ve been craving corn muffins like crazy. It must have something to do with chili season. When I was at the grocery store last weekend, I couldn’t find a single brand that didn’t contain nasty ingredients. Bob’s Red Mill brand is of wonderful quality with nothing yucky added. Check out my confetti corn muffins toward the end of the post…. very yummy!
I’ve wanted to experiment with Dandy Blend ever since first seeing it on Tina’s blog. I finally broke down and bought some and I’m so glad I did. I made mine into a hot cinnamon latte; using unsweetened vanilla almond milk, cinnamon and a little stevia.
Now before we get to the giveaway, I’ve got a quick and easy recipe to share with you that is the perfect compliment to your winter chili, stew, soup or even salad. You can use any cornbread muffin mixture, but I would strongly suggest using Bob’s Red Mill brand for delicious quality muffins that you won’t feel guilty about throwing back.
- 1 pkg. cornbread muffin mixture
- 1 roasted* red pepper (about 3/4 cup), diced
- 4 green onions, diced
- Stir cornbread mixture together according to package instructions. Stir in diced red pepper and green onion.
- Transfer to muffin tins and bake according to cornbread mixture package instructions.
