Just Because You're All Awesome

Have you all been following the mega amounts of giveaways this month? Here, there, everywhere- all in the name of Celiac Awareness and Food Allergy Awareness month. I could end the month but it occurred to me that all of you follow me; you support my sites by visiting, sharing and commenting and that alone makes me just need to give all of you at least one more chance to win one of my favorite products. I appreciate all of you so if I can give back even more, I am going to. Besides, I have never heard anyone claim " A chance to win free stuff? Nah, I'll pass."

Health Inside & Out I thought it was just as important to give away an allergy-friendly product that wasn't food. Why? Because having food allergies means checking everything- EVERYTHING! This means what you use in every day life too like the supplements that you ingest and the products that you put onto your skin. Think about it- anything that goes into your stomach must be allergen free but are you also reading labels for all of the items that are touching your skin too? Skin is porous aka "Welcome allergens, come on in!" So you can imagine why I felt that sharing SeabuckWonders would be the perfect end to a really great month of allergy awareness and sharing. Are you all shrugging your shoulders, asking what SeabuckWonders is? Here, let me make it simple:

Oh come on, it's cute and funny! And it's almost the holiday weekend so let's all get a little silly and relax and let's have fun! But safe fun. No allergens. Luckily, entering this contest only requires you using a computer or your favorite electronic device to push keys and/or buttons and that's pretty safe. 

Soooo, Sea Buckthorn?!Whaaaa? I know, I did the same thing when I found SeabuckWonders. Quick brief intro: 
  • SeabuckWonders Sea Buckthorn has 4 omegas (3,6,9 and 7, which is rare)
  • Their products have multiple healing aspects (there's, like a gazillion but go here and you'll see)
  • SeabuckWonders products are Kosher certified, Vegan, Non-GMO, gluten free and plant-based
  • PLUS, the skincare products smells divine (like light citrusy-orange)
IF You Enter you will have a chance to win this

Hair, Skin & Nails and Facial Cream
I use these products every single day (actually, I use a few more as well) and they make my skin silky smooth and make me feel...well, like a goddess. (Yes, some may say I'm being snobbish but if you go to my article here, you will understand). 

Onward to the Giveaway! It's going to be short and sweet, my wonderful peeps. I know most of you will be outside, cooking, swimming, eating and whatever is the farthest place away from the computer. The contest will begin Wednesday May 24th and end Friday May 26th at midnight EST. One winner will be chosen at random and that winner will be announced on Tuesday May 31st (because that's when we are all back at our computers). Open to residents of the United States and Canada. If the winner doesn't come forth within 48 hours, another winner will be chosen at random. Neither myself of SeabuckWonders will share any of your personal information with anyone because that's mean and annoying and not good business practice. 

So, go here to enter NOW (and share/repost/tweet as it's the best way to help us get another giveaway in the future plus sharing is caring).

PUREly the Way To Win

This is Chef Kieth Norman

 In addition to being the Food Safety Manager& Assistant Executive Chef at South Point Hotel & Casino, he has worked with wonderful organizations such as FAACT (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Team) and The Food Allergy Bloggers Conference and is sought after for his multiple strengths in food allergy awareness. He cooks, he speaks, he "chefs" and he helps to keep us all safe. This is one person that I would trust to cook for my son with multiple food allergies and that's saying a lot.  Why am I so excited for him? Chef Keith is THE go-to allergy aware chef within the food allergy community. He lives and breathes food allergy safety and THIS Friday May 20th Chef Keith Norman will be on Fox5 Las Vegas (KVVU- TV) where he will discuss Food Allergy Awareness Month. In this segment, he will showcase some of the products that are available to those who have food allergy needs. Tune in and watch closely because Chef Keith will be using Winona Pure Oil during his segments (a little birdie told me you may even see it in action!). Heck, send them a message telling them you are waiting to see Chef Kieth!

Winona Pure Oil is a product that I found myself a few years ago. While reaching for a can of spray oil, I was angry that so many brands marketed themselves as healthy and pure but most of them contain ingredients that can be very harmful such as soy, additives and propellants. Winona Pure Oil is just oil- nothing else so when you use it, you are truly cooking healthier and safer. As a mom, I love the multiple products that they offer so that my family's meals can get the full benefit of using several different oils for our dietary needs. The nozzle of the can allows me to spray it, drizzle it or be able to measure out an accurate amount of oil for any recipe that I am cooking or baking.

Are YOU Ready to Win Some?!
In honor of Chef Keith showcasing Winona Pure Oils this Friday and in the spirit of Food Allergy Awareness Month, I am excited to host a giveaway where 2 people will be able to try Winona Pure Oil for themselves. It's always nice to find a product in a store near you but we all know that winning some free product is always better (admit it- free is good but allergy-friendly free is the best).

Win This!

EACH winner will receive 1 Winona Pure Oil t-shirt (choice of black, grey or white) just like the t-shirts that NutriDaughter & I wore for the GFAF Expo...only, not those t-shirts because that would be very yucky and most unprofessional. I promise each winner will get their own brand new, crisp, clean Winona Pure Oil t-shirt.

And Win This!
Each winner will also get an official Winona Pure Oil pen. Think of all of the recipes and cooking notes that you can use this for! Notice the very cool reasons I have listed in the picture to the right of why you need this pen. But before you get too excited about the t-shirts and the pen, there's more! (and, am I the only one who is having a Steve Martin flashback .."All I need is this pen"...yes? Ok...)

Win These Too!
AND each winner will get 1 can of Winona Pure Oil Olive, Coconut Oil and Popcorn Butter Spray. FYI- the Popcorn Butter Spray is dairy free.. I bet you were just shaking your head saying  "Oh no, I can't have that!" well yes you can! "But Nutrimom, what does it taste like?" It tastes very similar to the popcorn butter that you get when you go to the movies or that yummy, buttery taste on your favorite popped popcorn minus the calories, cholesterol, sodium and fat. Yup, it has none of those. In fact, none of the Winona Pure Oils have any of that so how excited are you now? Are you jumping up and down? Are you wishing that I would stop typing so you could just enter the contest? Alright... I'll stop.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Contest will run Thursday May 19th - Friday May 20th at 11:59 PM. Open to everyone in the United States and Canada. Two winners will be chosen at random via Rafflecopter giveaway entries (above) and the winners will be announced Monday, May 23nd. If either of the winners does not claim their prize within 48 hours, alternate winner(s) will be chosen. No purchase necessary. We will not use your contest entry information for anything except the contest because nobody likes to get spam mail forever. Remember to share because the more sharing and comments we get, the more Winona Pure Oils will be likely to agree to another giveaway.

Thank you to the wonderful & supportive people at Winona Pure Oils for being a trusted product for so many years that is true to their word. Special hugs to Chef Keith Norman for doing what he does best- always on the path to help other <3

Congratulations to our contest winners
