My Big Fat Contest

Posted on February 1, 2010. Filed under: Giveaway | Tags: , |

Good morning! If everything is going right, this is auto-posting while I’m living up my 4-day weekend, getting my long run in, refueling with oatmeal, and doing my laundry. If that’s not entirely the case, it’s because I’m forgetting to do my laundry–go do it, Evan!

Remember my big fat post? Well it got a spin-off(think Private Practice from Grey’s Anatomy) and this is it! I’ve been loving my coconut oil as of late; I’ve been eating at least a tablespoon a day through delicious sources:

Raw Vegan Chocolate

Coconut Oil Peanut Fudge

Probiotic Chocolate Avocado Pudding With Raw Chocolate

. It’s also been increasing my cravings for movie theater popcorn tenfold, but lets skip over that nasty side effect.You might have read my official review of it:

Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil

9.5/10: This one gets a gold star from me; this was everything I could ask for a coconut oil product and more. After reading about how it was harvested and just how unrefined this particular product was on the Tropical Tradition website, I was really impressed; that’s not something you’ll find in a lot of coconut oils. The room-temperature stability was perfect for cold applications but also ease of access. And the flavor was incredibly raw and very much “coconut”. My only wish were that this be more available in stores rather than simply from the website. But I also love and acknowledge that the company has a lot of sales and specials for members and you can get an incredible deal on this better priced than any store product if you wait for the right moment.

Now it’s time for the giveaway! Tropical Traditions has an amazing line of just about anything you could need on their website. They also have a neat recipe website utilizing the benefits of coconut products. Best of all, they have a newsletter, facebook page, and twitter account to let you be an insider and get some amazing deals on any of their products. You know me; I’m all about coupons and sales. Remember when I got 2 4-packs of Steaz(regularly $4.49) for a grand total of $2.49 with sales and a Whole Deal coupon? That was a good deal. And one of the great things about Tropical Traditions is that they’re always running sales and specials so if you play your cards right you’ll get their products for less.

This is your chance to win a 32oz container of Coconut Oil for free!

What would I do with my yummy Coconut Oil: stir it into my bowl of oatmeal 🙂

Just Tweeted your Give Away…..@familyfresh

That fudge has my drooling, so beyond wanting to swim in a fat of coconut oil, I’d definitely give that recipe a shot!

I would love to make the peanut fudge with the coconut oil!

My second entry for the newsletter subscription…

That is a GIANT container!

My favorite thing to do is make a coconut oil bark: I heat it up until it is a liquid, then add some flax, peanut butter, cocoa, and a little sugar. Freeze it and it’s delicious!

I would make lots of stir-fries with it! Coconut oil adds such an amazing flavor to stir-fried veggies and tofu 🙂

I’d love to try using it as my regular cooking oil! Or maybe in some brownies…yum 🙂

I would definitely try to make stir fries with it first. Yummy!

Hmmm… I’ve never tried coconut oil. I’d try it in cookies, stir fry, and perhaps fudge 🙂

um, brownies for sure. duh. 🙂

Hmmm….what would I do with it?? Whatever the heck YOU do with it haha – or Averie – cause your baked goods are ridiculously good-looking 🙂

I’ve been curious about coconut oil for a while, but I never tried to use it. I did bought a few jars of the cheapest brand, but it all ended up as soap. I’m sure it tastes a lot better in your chocolate!

I really want to make your raw chocolate bar! And course try coconut oil on oats.

Such a gorgeous giveaway! Thank you for giving us this opportunity! Mmmm, I would definitely fix some gorgeous raw vegan chocolate like yours, and then a raw coleslaw with shredded veggies, the coconut oil, raw coconut, a bit of tamari, and sesame seeds!

Thank you for your awesome comment on my blog – the story of your olive fingers made me giggle quite a bit… 🙂 I’m so glad I wasn’t the only little kid who liked olives! 🙂

What WOULDN’T I do with 32 oz of coconut oil?? I would for SURE try out some vegan choco brownies, maybe vegan choco peanut butter brownies for the Super Bowl party on Sunday?
