Nature Box Giveaway! [snack healthy]

You all probably know by now that I’m a big time snack-a-holic.  I graze on things all day long simply because I love to eat!  Having said that, I always try to focus on keeping my snacks as HEALTHY as possible.  Some of my favorite things to graze on are veggie chips, almonds and granola which is why I was super excited when my friends at Nature Box contacted me about their super healthy monthly snack packages!  I received my first package the other day for November, here it is!

The Nature Box Co. packages up the healthiest snacks they can find and ships them out in monthly packages for just $19.95/month.  I love this idea because it eliminates the classic “I don’t have time to eat healthy” excuse!!  Their packages include 5 full size healthy & unique snacks along with a fun explanation of the yummy treats.  All of their snacks follow these strict quality guidelines:

  • No High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • No Hydrogenated Oils
  • No Trans Fats
  • No Artifical Sweeteners
  • No Artificial Flavors & Colors

Now those are some rules I can live by!

I was super excited to receive my November package which included Maple Chipotle Almonds, Cinnamon Granola, Carrot Chips, Ranch Peas, and Garlic Pumpkin Seeds.  Everything was delicious, but I especially enjoyed the Maple Chipotle almonds and the Cinnamon Granola I had for breakfast today ;)…

Here’s the fun little explanation that came along with my snacks…

This is just too much fun, I just love the concept!! So, in the spirit of the holiday season, I am offering a giveaway to Picklee readers on behalf of my friends at Nature Box!

The lucky winner will receive a FREE Nature Box including 5 packages of deliciously healthy snacks!

Here’s how to enter:

1. Check out our brand new Picklee online shop, then be sure that you like us on Facebook (!/PickleeOnSpring)!

2. Leave a post on the Picklee on Spring facebook page telling us what you’d like for Christmas from our shop!  Hint:  This may turn into another fabulous giveaway for another lucky reader ;)

Good luck, everyone!


pacific giveaway

Giveaway! Organic Soup Mixes from Natural Pacific Foods

I received some goodies in the mail the other day from my friends over at Pacific Natural Foods! Isn’t it the best when you get a package in the mail? I always feels like a kid at Christmas =) I was pretty excited to dig into this one…Pacific Foods makes a great line of organic soup starters, so it makes it super simple to whip up just about any soup dish.  The best part is that they offer really unique, Global bases like the “Pho” and the “Tom Yum”…soups flavors I know I could never conjure up without the help of these bases!

Last night I decided to make a chicken tortilla soup and it came out amazing.  Brett’s a major “meat and potatoes” guy, but even he can’t get enough of this hearty (yet healthy!) soup.  A few years back I perfected (in my humble opinion ;) ) my tortilla soup recipe, it’s loaded with black beans, chunky tomatoes, corn and shredded chicken.  So I figured this time I’d make up my soup using the Pacific Food’s tortilla base…I must admit, I didn’t know it was possible, but it was even better than my original recipe!  Stay tuned for my chicken tortilla soup recipe, coming soon!  Until then, if you’re lookin’ for a Mexican food fix, check out my healthy Mexican Lasagna, it uses many of the same yummy ingredients as the soup =)

So I’m here today to share the love!  I am giving away one package of Pacific Natural Foods Soup Starters to one lucky Picklee reader!

To enter, simply reply to this post telling me what your favorite Fall soup is and be sure to “like” Picklee on Facebook

FOR EXTRA POINTS…Pass the message to like Picklee on Facebook along to your friends and tell me if you’ve done so ;) !

One winner will be randomly selected on Wednesday, October 24 to receive their FREE package of soup starters =)

I’m looking forward to hearing from all of you!

Good luck!

***UPDATE!*** Pacific Natural has offered us two more kits to giveaway, so we will now be selecting three lucky readers to receive soup starter kits!
