Artisana Giveaway: Organic Raw Nuts & Butters

OK, are you ready for some fun? Hang onto your seats - it's just beginning!!! When I discovered the delightful news that Artisana Organic Foods had interest in sponsoring a giveaway for my readers I was ecstatic! I've always admired Artisana products: puresimplebeautiful and most importantly - organic.

How to Enter (Artisana Giveaway):
  1. Share this post on some form of social media (your Facebook page, blog, Twitter, e-mail your friends, etc)
  2. Leave a comment with your name and contact info + letting me know you did step #1
  3. Answer the question: Do you prefer giveaways (readership involvement) or product reviews and recommendations?
That's it! You're entered for a chance to win an 8oz jar of Artisana Organic Raw Coconut Butter & an Assortment of On-the-Go Squeeze Packs :) 

Think of all the delicious & nutritious recipes you can make with this coconut butter! Artisana products are a great staple to add to your healthy kitchen. My best to you all :-) 

Artisana's On-the-Go Squeeze packets are a great companion for those "rush, rush" moments. Toss an apple or banana in your bag on your way out the door along with one of these yummy nut butters and you have a heart healthy little snack! Too easy :P

The winner will be announced next Friday, July 27, 2012! 


My workout today was a little different than normal. It's always nice to switch things up a bit! I found this workout online and modified it slightly.

Here's the rundown, get ready to work up a sweat! 
  • Dive bombers 10 reps (first timer . . . definitely need to practice!)
  • Burpees 10 reps
  • Squat leg lift 20/20 reps
  • Burpees 10 reps
  • Side plank lift 10/10 reps
  • Burpees 5 reps
  • Pistol squat 10/10 reps
  • Burpees 5 reps
It was short and intense! You can do as many rounds as you like :) There is still much to be desired with my time . . . maybe one day I'll be brave enough to post that :P What did your workout look like today?

What a fantastic giveaway!! I have really been wanting to try coconut butter. I shared your giveaway on facebook and twitter. :) I love both giveaways and reviews. I love learning about what products other bloggers love and trying them as well!

Shared on my personal facebook. I love giveaways in theory but considering that I've never won one I probably find reviews more useful, haha!

Sarah said...

I looooove this stuff! I posted your stuff on my Facebook., have a great day! I like giveaways, who doesn't love free things?

Suzanne Buckles said...

Hey there! I shared this giveaway on Facebook. My email is, and on FB my name is Penelope Pope. With most things, I have learned that I don't do well with reviews and/or recommendations. I think I have a pretty unique sense of taste and opinion. So I'll go with giveaways. As far as your products go, the majority of my food stamp balance goes towards your almond, coconut and cashew butters for my 4 year old daughter and me every month. They keep us happy and healthy, for sure!!! :)

Thanks for the opportunity! I have yet to try all of Artisana's products! Some are not available near me.

I posted this on Facebook (Beth Dickhute-Mickens) and Twitter (@vegfoodtracker). My e-mail is

I think both giveaways and product reviews are great for the blog! Product reviews provide readers with somewhat of an idea about what the product provides (pros and cons) while giveaways allows others the chance to try the product for themself!

And love the workout! What's a Dive Bomber!?

I just shared your give-a-way on my blog's page on FB ( I give-a-ways and reviews. The give-a-ways are always fun, and reviews are helpful! A lot of this stuff is expensive, so getting an opinion on it ahead of time is very nice!

My workout was a little lazy today. Sometimes I just like to read a magazine on the elliptical.

I shared your post on Facebook for my friends to see. (d_truswell at

I definitely prefer giveaways to accompany a review or recommendation. I find it helpful to hear what others have to say about a product but in the end I need to try things for myself.

Done it on Facebook and my blog! (Contact: wildchild.urbancity

I like both reviews and giveaways. Reviews are helpful while giveaways are fun.

I love both! Reviews really help me see and hear about a product while giveaways give me the oppurtunity to try it!

i LOVE giveaways, but prefer that it come with a review/recommendation. The reason being is how many peeps actually win, but the product sounds or looks good, so spill the beans :)

Aimee Gonzalez said...

My twitter @BargainBites00 and facebook Aimee Gonzalez is rocking the Raw Nuts! Thanks for the giveaway!

I prefer reviews.... only because the giveaways seem to become somewhat crazy and it's hard to only see one person win. With the reviews, it's a cool way to learn about a new product from a blogger's perspective so you know if it is something you should invest in trying. Can't wait to hear more about this product and I"m a strict veg head so this all looks fabulous!!! (esp. since i'm pregnant and running and doing the health kick!)

I emailed three friends and told them about your give away. I love Artisana nut butters. I remember when I was a few months into learning about and transitioning into a plant based oil-free diet, someone from Artisana came to be a guest speaker at the class I was taking at Whole Foods in Cupertino. He made an appetizer with a slice of banana, a slice of avocado and a smear of pecan butter. I was so excited to discover that plant based food could taste so good. Thank you! I like give aways and product reviews--give aways are the best.

Carolina Lima Jantac said...

I emailed my friends! I talk about your products all the time on my "work" website. But I'm a big fan personally. I like the food givaways the best. They give the opportunity for people to try it themselves.

Angela7ish said...

I tweeted: I love both product reviews and giveaways, but if I already like/love the product a giveaway is the best way to get me raving about a product!

Athena said...

I prefer a combination of giveaways with product reviews/recommendations.

Today I charged around the yard (essentially doing sprints) while chasing and running with my dog and child. Fun!
