Oprah's giveaway


In honor of my blogversary, I'm going to do "a few of my favorite things" giveaway. So you can call me Oprah.

Some things that will be included:

Runners Log book
Vanilla Bean GU
Sport Beans
Various homemade goodies + other surprises

If you want to participate, leave a comment telling me what your favorite healthy snack is.

Winners will be chosen randomly. Contest ends on Monday June 29,2009 at midnight. If the prize is not claimed in 48 hours a new winner will be chosen. The winner will be announced in a post.


I did some mad baking last night, and tried Angela's glonuts. I don't have a donut pan so this rose pan that is from our wedding and I have used maybe once had to do. They were larger than her mini donuts and I prefer them small, but they were delicious! I also used some leftover icing from the blackbean brownies - I sweetened them up to bring them over for Father's Day and my parents couldn't tell they were not your standard brownie!





They were delicious!

Then I made some Dr Nanners burgers (a spinoff of Dr Praegers which seem so easy to make). I just started dumping things into the food processor (broccoli, kale, peppers, some bulgar, oat bran, and a tbsp of oil). They didn't stick together too well, and were mushy but they were similar to a broccoli patty that Dr Praegers might sell!

I had one for lunch w/ some multigrain bread and smart balance spread. YUM!

  4. My favorite healthy snack is roasted/toasted chickpeas. Drain and rinse, throw 'em on a cookie sheet, and pop 'em in the oven for 45 minutes or so. They get kinda crunchy like popcorn. Depending on my mood I add salt or pepper and parmesan cheese.

  5. Thanks Oprah for the great giveaway!
    My favorite healthy snack right now is from Trader Joe's - the Edamame in the pod. They are fun to pop out of the pod right into your mouth. Great protein after a great workout. Those doughnuts look tasty, I think I have to try them!

  7. Ooh, count me in - and if I win, you don't even have to mail it :)

    I'm a big fan of baby carrots and peanut butter as a snack. Or challah rolls from the co-op... mmm...

  8. I just purchased some of those blue sport beans today. I'm anxious to try them. (Although I left them in my 900 degree car now that I think about it...)

    Anyway, my favorite snack is grapes. I could eat grapes until I explode. They have a fair amount of sugar, but since I'll eat Skittles by the handful, it's at least better than that.

  10. Healthy snack?? Does crunch n munch count?? This is actually a hard question for me...I don't consider any snack healthy!! My "snacks" during the day are fruit so I'll go with that!

    ReplyDelete
  11. hmmmmm i dont know! grapes and yogurt are probably at the top of the list :)

  12. For a heavier snack, I would definetely have to say a Cliff bar. But for a lighter, more "snacky" snack, carrots and peanut butter is a BANGIN' combination!

  16. Fruit is always my favorite standby, but I also like to munch on almonds -- high in protein and fiber!

    ReplyDelete
  17. It totally depends on my mood. I would have to say fruit first and foremost, but if I need something quick and simple as I am running out the door I love to grab my CLIF ZBars.

  18. I would have to say my favorite healthy snack would be raspberries. I love fruit and i love the berries in the summer!

  19. How fun! My favorite healthy snack is fruit (melon, papaya, berries, bananas, pineapple) with yogurt and sometimes Grape-nuts (or granola) added for a little crunch :-)
