Giveaway: Organic Rudi’s Bread & Sandwich Boxes

This is my favorite commercial bread bakery, and frankly, the only brand I’ve purchased in years. I’m big on homemade bread, but when this stuff goes on sale, I sometimes cheat and pick up a loaf for breakfast toast. I love that they run a dairy-free bakery!

To get warmed up for the giveaway, here are a few fun Rudi-related things that might interest you:

  1. Today I posted a Banana Hot Dog “Sundae” Recipe from Rudi’s Bakery on Go Dairy Free. This is a fun snack that you and your little ones can enjoy whether vegan, gluten-free, or nut-free!
  2. A couple of months ago I reviewed Rudi’s Whole Grain English Muffins and Tortillas. Yum!
  3. A Coupon for $1 Off Any Rudi’s Organic Bread (vegan).
  4. A Coupon for $1 Off Any Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bread (gluten-free and dairy-free).

Okay, are you ready? Comment on this post to enter to win:

  • Two Rudi’s FREE Loaf Coupons (gluten-free or regular/wheat – your choice!) AND
  • Two Rudi’s sandwich boxes

Tell me, which loaves of Rudi’s bread would you purchase? You can see the whole line-up at Rudi’s Organic and Rudi’s Gluten-Free. I’ll pick a winner in two days, on Friday, September 23rd!

Me personally? I just bought the 100% Whole Wheat Organic Bread from Rudi’s using the coupon, but if I could find that Spelt Ancient Grain bread, I would be all over it.

NuNaturals giveaways seem to be popping up all over the internet, and I am happy to offer one more opportunity for you to win these great sugar-free sweeteners. I’ve trialed a few stevia products, and though I still like to use it with a light hand, NuNaturals has been my favorite by far.

Giveaway: A Raw Food Cookbook!

First things first … the winner of the I’m Organic Giveaway from last week is Stephanie! Congrats, and I believe you will have a cute eco-friendly mug coming your way. For those who didn’t win, you can still check out the I’m Organic website for cool stuff (they recently lowered their prices – now cheapo me thinks this stuff is a deal!), and I have another giveaway ….

This week you could win The Raw Truth: Recipes and Resources for the Living Foods Lifestyle by Jeremy Safron …

It’s finally summer, so I couldn’t imagine a better style of “cookbook” to have than one that doesn’t require you to turn on the oven or stove!

This book has a nice informational guide section at the beginning, giving a low-down on raw foods and some of those details that may be fuzzy for us newbies (sprouting, culturing, dehydrating, which foods are classified as raw, how to make the transition, health benefits, etc.), followed up by a plethora of recipes. Today on Go Dairy Free, I note the recipes that caught my eye in terms of which I would want to make, but here are some other recipes in this book that sound really intriguing:

  • Ruby Cooler
  • Fruit Rawies
  • Creamy Carrot-Ginger Soup
  • Cauliflower Chowder
  • Apple Cinnamon Essence Bread
  • Chile Mole
  • Tamales
  • Tribal Wild Rice Salad
  • Brownies
  • Ultimate Sundae
  • And the list goes on …

To enter, just comment here on your favorite raw food recipe. If your like me, it is probably a smoothie or salad, but maybe some of you have done a little more adventuring in raw foods!

The winner will be picked next week!
